Thai Massage: Sen Line Theory and Therapy

September 5 - September 9 | 650us$
Bodymind Thai Massage, Newington
CONNECTICUT, CT United States

On this 5 day course we discover each of the ten sen, where they are in the body and what areas they address. By feeling along the energy channels we can easily find the blocks and release them. Blocks can be found on one whole side of the body or one body part or just on just one spot on the line. With this knowledge we can uncover the root cause of the issue, rather than trying to treat a symptom, and so, can give extremely effective treatment with long term relief. This is a great course for people who are stuck in a system of treatment and want to be able to work specifically, diagnostically and have every asana be effective. In this way we can give a half hour treatment that addresses all the problems and does not waste our clients precious time or over work them. We will be learning specific therapy for the obvious issues clients present with, neck and shoulder pain, lower back and sciatic issues, carpel tunnel syndrome

Introduction to Thai Medicinal Herbs

September 7 | $150
Zion Massage College, 567 South Valley View Drive
St George, Utah, 84770 United States

This one-day workshop is a basic introduction to the herbal healing traditions of Thailand. Medicinal herbs are an intrinsic component of the ancient healing traditions of Thailand, and they have many applications in the modern world. Thai herbs and roots are freshly mixed to prepare poultices, teas, bath infusions, and herbal compresses. The compresses are steamed, and then applied to the body to relieve stress, to ease tension and to bring about a calm state of mind.

The course presents a basic understanding and working knowledge of the medicinal properties of major Thai herbs, preparation of herbal infusions and poultices, and basic knowledge of Thai herbal compress therapy. There is discussion, mixing, tasting, and preparing herbs, and a review of application techniques in bodywork. We will discuss conditions that are suited for treatment with herbs and compresses, and we review Thai massage techniques and concepts for both hot and cold herbal compresses. The effects of a Thai herbal session can be truly amazing; aches and pains seem to fade away, and you feel relaxed yet energized.

Thai Abdominal Massage, Level 1

September 11 - September 13 | $450
Be Well, 601 N. 3rd St.
Marquette, MI United States

Abdominal massage is perhaps one of the most profound forms of bodywork. The majority of physical and emotional imbalances and congestion are stored in the abdomen, yet ironically, abdominal massage has become virtually a lost art and science. Almost all energy lines and physical communication systems (blood, lymph, nerves) pass through the abdomen, and this area becomes a ‘dumping ground’ for stagnant energy. In addition to addressing physical ailments associated with all the internal organs, this work is proven to have incredible healing effects throughout the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Abdominal massage is patient work; truly an art and dance crafted with grace. This class will proceed with careful awareness and attention to anatomy, energy flow, and the breath.
Class includes:
* How to approach and work with the abdomen.
* Warming the belly, detoxing the skin, and opening the wind gates.
* Opening the breath.
* Abdominal anatomy and how to approach each organ.
* A 90 minute sequence.
Pre-requisite: Bodywork experience.

Therapeutic Thai Massage; Using Compressions & Props

September 15 - September 17 | 450
Be Well, 601 N. 3rd St.
Marquette, MI United States

Long-held compressions have always been a part of Thai massage, and are a very effective technique to release chronic congestion and tension in the body. However, they are uncommonly used either because it becomes painful for the practitioner or ineffective because there is a lack of training of the subtleties and direction of compression work. Christopher has focused most of his massage work around long-held compressions for 15 years, and through experience, has turned this style of Thai bodywork into a powerfully therapeutic art-form. Come explore the movement of congestion in the body and minimize muscular effort with your work. These key bodywork principles of working from a place of ease and sensitivity apply universally, whether your style includes longer compressions or is more mobile and fluid.
The key components covered in this course:
* The Breath.
* Direction and movement. A compression is not a stagnant, waiting game. The angle and speed of entry, following the tissue as it releases, and subtly coaxing the tissue are all essential components.
* Using feet, knees, elbows, forearms, and sit bones.
* Using props.
