ThaiVedic Bodywork Training Level 1

With Kimmana Nichols & Sebastian Bruno

About the Retreat

The perfect union of timeless Ayurvedic principles and Buddhist Thai Yoga therapy, this bodywork art bridges one of the world’s greatest holistic medicine systems with the therapeutic techniques of Thai Yoga Massage.

Imagine if there was a way to know which healing modality would be best for any person? What changes that would make if this was available to all human kind? The impact you could have if you could share that wisdom with the world?

ThaiVedic Bodywork Training in Thailand is a unique opportunity for people across the globe who are interested to help others heal through touch therapies and guidance. It is unique because it is not just another modality to have in your tool belt, but more importantly it is a governing system, a tool belt where all modalities can be understood and used more effectively. The ThaiVedic System can show you the benefits and weaknesses of all healing techniques and on what individuals and conditions these techniques will be most suited.

If you are a professional bodyworker, this course will enable you to apply a greater degree of holistic diagnosis and individualised healing for your clients. If you are new to the world of healing with touch, this course will give you a complete framework to understand all healing modalities and the know-how to give an amazing one hour Thai massage that heals you while you work.

Regardless of what stage of bodywork you are at now, this course is loaded with healing touch and conscious movement tools, and I am certain all participants will walk away with new ways to view the world and its infinite healing possibilities.
