Description

Course Description:

Traditional Thai Massage is usually carried out on the floor with the client fully clothed, and without the use of carrier oils. Thai Table Massage is an adaptation of this treatment that can be carried out on a normal portable massage table.

Thai Table Massage can be incorporated into a massage routine and is beneficial for practitioners who may not work on the floor and for clients who may have difficulties getting down to, or up from, the floor.

In the Northern regions of Thailand the emphasis in Traditional Thai Massage is on stretching.  By contrast in the Southern regions of Thailand the emphasis in Traditional Thai Massage is on acupressure.  Thai Table Massage will incorporate both of these styles.

The benefits of Thai Table Massage for your clients include helping to

  • Free blockages in the Body Energy Flow
