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 is a factor 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.

 

• The required PPE gear & practices + sanitizing/cleaning protocol will be used throughout the duration of the course to keep everyone safe. 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 the 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 $200 Cdn ($177+hst)) to be paid to Metta Movement Arts at the time of booking. If travel distance prohibits a 1:1 supervision, individual arrangements will be made as required.

 

Therefore,

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

Step 2 = Full Certification Program details coming soon!

Thai Massage Trainings

 

This course will share how to give a highly effective 60 minute Thai Massage up on the massage table.

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.

This is a great course if you've been giving Traditional Thai Massage on the ground & want to bring it up off the mat OR the reverse ... you're an RMT or certified bodyworker wanting to introduce Thai Massage to your current client base. Table Thai can be a great segue into providing Thai Massage down on the mat.

Up Off the Ground: Table Thai Massage course is open to all certified Thai Massage practitioners or those with some Thai Massage experience + all RMT's or bodyworkers already familiar with a massage table and looking to add new tools to their toolbox of offerings.

This course will provide you with a beautiful flow of movements & techniques that will expand your side lying repertoire.

Side lying can address the whole body. In fact, a full Thai Massage can be given in this position. Energy line work, marma points, brief review of musculature that make up the side body + unique ways of addressing the legs, hips, back body, shoulders, neck & head will be included.

 

Side lying is ideal for clients not comfortable lying flat on their back or face down for any reason, especially pregnancy. Much of the side lying work can also transfer to a table with a few adjustments. 

Open to certified Thai Massage practitioners looking to learn more skill sets.
