Thai massage is traditionally done on a mat on the floor. We will be modifying this to use the massage table. Thai massage is performed on a fully clothed client, using compression, stretching, pin-and-stretch, movement, and rocking to move the client into assisted yoga postures.
In this class, we will explore:
· What moves are easiest on the therapist’s body?
· What moves are effective and feel good for the client?
Learn a full-body beginner Thai routine on the massage table. Side-lying massage is a Powerhouse position that allows you to easily mobilize hips, shoulders, necks and ribcages! Without extra strain on your body. Opens up lots of possibilities for treatment.
This is also a beginner class – no prerequisites. You will learn a full 60+ minute routine. You do not need to take the “Table Thai” class first. I particularly like this class for easy upper body work!
Come to class ready to learn and practice! We will have a lot of hands-on practice time so that you can practice each movement and create muscle memory. You’ll also have the opportunity to receive each technique, so that you know how it feels for the client. This class is largely demonstration and hands-on practice.
We will be working on each other fully clothed, so wear comfortable, stretchy clothing.
Class Supplies to bring:
Fitted bottom sheet
