THAI YOGA MASSAGE COURSE
A Thai Yoga Massage course is always a spiritual experience that combines meditation and the practice of loving-kindness, and for those interested particularly on learning massage, it is a great opportunity to know more about this beautiful healing technique. When receiving Thai massage there are many benefits in the physical aspect but the ultimate goal of the practice is a deep healing for both the giver and the receiver. Thai Massage is a communion between two people, a co-creation of touch and presence. The way we move, the way we breathe, the way we touch, the way we allow healing to happen and flow… this is the ancient art of Thai Yoga Massage. Thai Yoga Massage brings penetrating massage & gentle yoga movements into a profound healing system. It will leave you feeling deeply nourished, relaxed, and filled with energy.
WHY CHOOSE THAI YOGA MASSAGE?
This is a massage system that will achieve powerful results for both practitioner and client.
FOR THE CLIENT:
According to Ayurvedic science, there is an extensive network of energy lines running throughout the body. It is through the massaging and stretching of this network of energy lines that Thai Yoga Massage releases tension. By allowing energy to flow more freely, the massage works to alleviate problematic conditions such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches, digestive difficulties, menstrual problems, and stress-related conditions. Promoting this free flow of energy also works to restore balance and create a deep state of relaxation and well-being for both the client and practitioner.
FOR THE PRACTITIONER:
As a practitioner you will feel blessed when so many of your clients tell you that they haven’t felt this good in years. Furthermore, even though it is an active massage, it doesn’t feel like work. Instead, it is an expression of feeling truly alive. This massage teaches you how to conserve energy, to bring your whole body into your work and avoid exhaustion and other chronic ailments in the hands, arms and shoulders that are common in other massage forms. You receive the blissful benefits of yoga & gentle stretching that are at the core of both giving and receiving.
