It's be a tough year for many of us whose work and livelihood have taken a direct hit from forced closures! I get it! If for any reason you need to set up a payment plan, please don't hesitate to contact us to make suitable arrangements that allow for comfort & ease within your budget. 

If you're an active Metta Movement Online Studio Annual Member and plan to register, contact us to get the 15% promo code.

Metta Movement Arts is excited to begin sharing this beautiful bodywork with more people. We are happy to get things rocking & rolling with Thai Massage ESSENTIALS 1.

What You Can Expect:

• This course will offer a solid foundation in the art of Thai Massage. This Essentials 1 course - on it's own - will not certify you as a Thai Massage practitioner yet it is the first step.

• A full 1.5 hour Thai Massage will be learned. 

• An introduction to Metta Movement's 4 cornerstones to providing a transformative Thai Massage. 

• You'll learn foundational touch techniques & tools + how to effectively move around the mat keeping your body & the receiver's body safe.

•  The ability to work at ground level on a large mat is required. You need to be comfortable getting up and down from the floor. (If this factors in for you, please contact us to discuss options)

• There will be hands-on practice throughout the entire course both receiving and giving. Practice truly begins with an exchange of the full massage on the final day.

 

• Any required PPE gear + sanitizing/cleaning protocol at the time of the course will be used throughout to allow everyone to feel as safe as possible. Closer to course dates, registrants will be notified about the location and any PPE requirements.

• NO previous experience in Thai Massage or bodywork is necessary.

• For registrants wanting to move through the certification process, upon completion of this course there will be 20 documented practice massages required + a three hour 1:1 Supervision with the lead teacher. This supervision will cost an extra $226 Cdn ($200+hst)) to be paid to Metta Movement Arts at the time of booking. If travel distance prohibits a 1:1 supervision, arrangements utilizing live zoom mentorship and video submission will be made on an individual basis as required.

 

Therefore,

Step 1 = Essentials 1 course + 20 documented practice massages + one 3-hr supervision = 65 hours 

Step 2 = Essentials 2 info + Complete Certification Program details coming soon.

This 15 hour course will share how to give a highly effective 60 minute Thai Massage on the massage table in prone & supine positions.

You will learn touch techniques & moves that ensure your safety, and that of your client too, as you maneuver around and share the table space.

Table Thai can be a great segue into providing Thai Massage down on the mat.
