The Art of Thai Massage-Training course

Traditional Thai Massage

Thai Massage is one of the five branches of Traditional Thai Medicine.

As a natural medicine it uses the Five Element theory to understand individuality and diagnose imbalances.
As a spiritual practice it incorporates the Buddhist principles of Vipassana (mindfulness) and the Four Brahamaviharas (Divine states of Mind)- Metta, Karuna, Mudita, Uppekha (loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, equanimity).

Powerful stretches and deep acupressure are applied carefully along as a fluid, meditative dance creating a relaxed supported body work that allows a profound sense of space and relaxation and bringing opposites (yin/yang, solar/lunar , masculine/feminine) into union.

Join us for a week long immersion into the Heart of Thai Massage, conscious touch, non-verbal communication and meditation set on the magical shores of KohPhangan.
Connecting with the primary languages of the body- Breath, Movement, Touch.
