Ancient Thai massage, also known as traditional Thai massage or Thai Yoga massage, combines stretching, acupressure points, fascia release and a choreography of postures resonating with the mind, balancing and aligning the physical and energetic body, while remaining in a deeply relaxing state of meditation.
It’s a great way for the patient to get all the benefits of yoga without any effort! Ideal for relieving muscle pain, reducing stress, releasing tension, increasing vitality and flexibility and improving circulation while stimulating and regenerating the body and mind.
You will learn to give a full body massage lasting 1.5 to 2 hours, equivalent to level 1 of traditional Thai massage. The sequence covers the feet, legs, stomach, hands, head, neck and face. Paper course materials will be provided.
The massage is in the style of Rahul Bharti following the choreography that he has developed throughout his years of experience and designed to also benefit the therapist with stretches during the massage.
This module is open to all, beginners, practitioners and constitutes a first level of professional training.
