Thai Yoga Massage - Myofascial Approach
In this professional bodywork training:

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, carried out on the floor, without oil, offers versatility and portability making it adaptable and integrable into various massage routines.

Thai Yoga Massage Training
"It unfolds like a meditative dance between giver and receiver"

Who is this training for:

Complete beginners who wish to learn massage simply for the pleasure of practicing on friends and family or who wish to explore massage as a profession.

Massage & Bodywork professionals who wish to expand their repertoire of massage skills and techniques with a simple routine.

Movement teachers working in areas such as dance, yoga, Pilates, fitness or care who wish to enhance their touch, relationship skills and deepen their understanding of holistic practice.

If you are looking at becoming a bodywork professional we highly recommend experiencing the depth and sensitivity of this restorative bodywork. This will ground you in skilful touch, the power of presence with a client and its effect on the body while supporting you to finding your inner stillness. Becoming a skilled helper is one of the most satisfying things one can do with ones time and life.

Our Course Focus
Participants will gain a comprehensive seventy-five minute routine suitable for general practice with healthy clients. The course emphasises 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 truly represent myofascial pathways, and if we can use them to soften and open the muscles, this seemingly humble technique becomes profound. It can enhance blood flow, aiding oxygen and nutrient transport, assist lymph drainage, removing toxins, and reduce pressure on nerves from the muscles and connective tissue and minimise extraneous noise in the central nervous system.
The Course Includes Howard's Book
Once enrolled you will receive a PDF of Howards 176 page Book:

A Myofascial Approach to Thai Massage East Meets West

Thai Massage 5 Day - 30 Hour Retreat: A meditative dance
The key to the work lies in the quality of touch and connection. When embodied there is a palpable sense of magic in the air between giver and receiver.

Without this embodied deepening, the techniques are just techniques. With a willingness to enter this process with presence, the work begins to really sing.
