About the Event
What is Traditional Thai Massage? Traditional Thai Massage is a Buddhist form of physiotherapy originally created by the Doctor of the Buddha 2000-2500 years. It was passed down from generation to generation by the monastic monks through oral tradition and primarily used to soothe sore muscles after intense meditation. In practice, it combines passive stretch, compressions and acupressure, in a rhythmic and systematic routine resembling yoga-like postures and thus commonly referred to as Thai Yoga in the west. In this course, you will learn the lineage that is said to directly trace back to the physician of the Buddha known as the “Father Doctor” Shivago.
Course Description: This course is specifically designed for anyone who is interested in Thai Massage and wants to try it out without having to commit to the full 32 hour course. Participants will learn the entire opening routine, which includes techniques to “warm” the legs for treatment and a 15 minute reflexology routine. You will then learn how to use your feet to apply pressure in treatment and passive stretches that gave this art the name “lazy manʼs yoga” in the west. Students will get a chance to observe the techniques, take notes and practice on a partner.
Special Offer: If you decide to take the full 32 hour course within 6 months of this introductory course, a credit of $100 will be applied. If you choose not to, then we hope you have at least learned some new tricks you can use in your clinic!
Andre has been an RMT since 2004. He credits the biggest leap in his career to learning Thai Massage. Similar to most therapists in their early years Andre suffered from regular discomfort performing Swedish massage and knew he would have to learn different methods of providing therapy in order to ensure his longevity in the field he loved. After studying numerous courses, a trip to Thailand to learn Thai Massage was what successful allowed him to change the way he practiced and taught him how to give effective treatments without having to stress his own body. Three trips to Thailand and numerous courses from different schools, masters and teachers have allowed him to refine his skills in Thai Massage. When not treating clients, Andre spends his time training other therapists is ancient forms of massage that not only help to preserve the health of clients, but practitioners as well.
