Thai 30: A meditative dance
The key to the work lies in the quality of touch and connection.
Without this deepening, the techniques are just techniques. With a willingness to enter this process of deepening, the work begins to sing.
Traditional Thai medicine operates on a network of 72,000 channels known as ‘sen.’ The myofascial approach interprets these as pathways, akin to Structural Integration. This method brings simplicity, allowing practitioners to embody the practice for deeper relaxation and healing.
Thai Massage, conducted on the floor without oil, offers versatility and portability, making it adaptable and integrable into various massage routines.
Participants will acquire a comprehensive seventy-five-minute routine suitable for general practice with healthy clients. The course emphasizes practitioner elements like posture, breathing, rhythm, self-awareness, attention, and concentration. The goal is to cultivate a massage style that benefits both the giver and the recipient.
In contrast to other bodywork systems, Thai Massage may seem very humble. Yet, if the Sen lines truly represent myofascial pathways, and if we can use them to soften and lengthen muscles, this seemingly humble technique becomes profound. It may enhance blood flow, aiding oxygen and nutrient transport, assist lymph drainage, remove toxins, and reduce pressure on nerves from muscles and connective tissue, minimizing extraneous noise in the central nervous system.
If you are looking at becoming a bodywork professional we highly recommend experiencing the depth and sensitivity of restorative bodywork.
This will ground you in skillful touch, the power of presence with a client and its effect on the body, and finding your inner stillness.
