We are SO EXCITED to bring you a Thai Bodywork Training with BodyWise Institute, led by Eleanor Bramwell and April Elliot.
The ancient healing art of Thai Massage is said to have originated before the time of the Buddha. Often called the lazy man’s yoga the receiver is passive and the practitioner stretches, and compresses their body. When offering Thai Massage or Bodywork we draw from thousands of years of healing, and incorporate elements of acupressure and deep muscle work.
Through hands on practice, lecture, and group discussions you will learn:
How to offer a 90 minute massage sequence
Basic anatomy of the skeletal, fascial, and lymphatic system
Efficient use of body mechanics, and how to use your hands, feet and elbows
Client recruitment, and how to build a practice
Contraindications and modifications for specific populations
The lineage and history of Thai Massage
Introduction to sen lines, and the energetics of Thai Massage
Explore basic trauma theory and how to create safe space for clients
40 hours of this training are contact. 10 hours are non contact, post course completion.
The training will be an introduction to Thai Bodywork and appropriate for all levels, no prior massage experience (or partner) is needed. Many yoga teachers appreciate how this course empowers them to offer more informed assists and feel more comfortable touching their students.
