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 current 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 and 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.
