Energy, Sensing & Self-Protection in Thai Massage

December 2 - December 3 | 3,900 baht
Sunshine Massage School, Kaew Nawarat, soi 4
Chiang Mai, Thailand

As we work, we send love and compassion to the person we are touching. Because of this, it’s important to keep an open heart. But when we facilitate or witness physical releases of tension and stress, and emotional releases of grief, sadness, or anger in our clients, then the therapist’s heart energy must become more self-serving.

Experienced healers must understand the importance of preparation before and after they work with their clients, and the need for self protection at critical moments during a treatment. It’s also important to know when and how to detoxify after a particularly stressful session.

This workshop focuses on energy releases in clients, and ways that Thai therapists can protect themselves. Participants learn how to recognize the first signs of energy release, to determine where they are, and how to work with them. Over fifteen physical exercises and visualization techniques are practiced during the course of the workshop, and an instruction booklet is provided for reference. This interesting course reflects material from the new book: Thai Healing Arts: Practice, Culture & Spirituality.
