60 Hour Thai Massage Workshop

April 22 - May 1, 2015

Discover your passion for Thai Massage while enjoying the beauty and tranquility of the CRSMT campus!

This course is tailored towards anyone that is interested in the therapeutic benefits, artistic expression and dynamic application of traditional Thai Massage. This course is designed for massage therapists or other bodywork practitioners who want to integrate this therapy into their practices, yoga teachers who wish to gain insight into yoga assists, and those who desire to explore this ancient form of bodywork combined with yoga, meditation, and philosophy.

Build and refine a foundation in Thai Massage with this 60-hour Traditional Supine, Prone, Side-Lying, and Sitting Full Body Sequence. In addition, history, benefits, and fundamentals of Thai Massage will be presented. You will learn how to fluidly transition your client through passive, yoga-like postures that lengthen and unwind tension and postural holding while providing a therapeutic and relaxing full body treatment.

Note: This workshop is presented in the traditional format using mats on the floor. NO massage tables will be used. Participants need to be able to be on their knees for significant periods of time. Loose fitting clothing is required due to the nature of the stretches and other techniques performed.
