Thai Techniques for Shoulders, Neck, Head & Face

August 18 - August 20 | $450
Body Therapy Institute, 300 S Wind Drive
Siler City, NC United States

This 3-day workshop presents advanced concepts and techniques for working the upper torso, including the shoulder blades, clavicle, shoulders, neck, head and face.

Working in all four body positions, we explore a wide variety of techniques using feet, palms, forearms, elbows, thumbs and fingers.

Participants explore many new and interesting techniques to release stored tension through stretches, compressions, fascia release, acupressure, and opening techniques. We also review and refine traditional Thai techniques for the shoulders, upper back, and neck. Finally, a wide variety of manual techniques, energetic concepts and acupressure points for the head and face are presented, many of which are not usually taught in general massage training.

Herbal balms and Thai tinctures are used for some of the face and neck techniques. Participants have ample time to give and receive each day. This is always an enjoyable workshop because the mood is meditative, and everyone loves to receive work on their shoulders, neck, head and face. Join us!

Thai Massage: Prone and Side Position Techniques

September 22 - September 24 | $450
Body Therapy Institute, 300 S Wind Drive
Siler City, NC United States

This workshop presents special techniques to work the legs, to relieve back pain, mobilize the hips, and work the spine, back, arms and shoulders. Side position is extremely comfortable for the receiver. It is especially suited for large or inflexible people and pregnant women. Prone position allows the therapist to treat the posterior aspect of the body, especially the feet, legs, lower back and shoulder blades. Each participant learns traditional Thai techniques, assisted yoga postures and acupressure protocols, and a period of silent, focused practice takes place at the end of each day.

If you are new to Thai massage, this workshop will provide you with a basic knowledge of techniques in prone and side positions. If you have already studied some Thai massage, this workshop will add new techniques to your repertoire, and a give you a fresh perspective on the work. Many of the techniques may be integrated into table massage and other forms of healing. A special segment is dedicated to working with pregnant women in side position.

Thai Massage Techniques: Seated & Supine Positions

October 20 - October 22 | $450
Body Therapy Institute, 300 S Wind Drive
Siler City, NC United States

This is an introductory workshop for practitioners of all forms of massage, bodywork, yoga and movement therapies. The class is open to those who wish to learn or refine an introductory full-body sequence in supine and seated positions.

This workshop is specially designed for practitioners and teachers of Western massage therapy, body movement, physical therapy, and yoga. The workshop features hands-on work using acupressure techniques, proper breathing & body mechanics, and assisted yoga postures. Special attention is paid to traditional Thai techniques that can be adapted to other disciplines such as table work. The majority of techniques in this workshop will be practiced in supine and seated positions, though later adaptations may be made for table workers. The final day of the workshop is dedicated to Thai upper torso techniques, focusing on shoulders, neck, head and face. The intent is to familiarize you at an introductory level with basic concepts that can be integrated into your own professional, personal and spiritual practices.
