Thai Massage is a form of Oriental bodywork practices traditionally on the floor, similar to Shiatsu without focusing on points.  This traditional massage of Thailand is rapidly emerging due to its profound benefits experience by both client and practitioner.  It is an interactive form of bodywork, unlike any other Western or Eastern forms.

The course will include lateral, prone, seated and supine positions, as well as a focus on the Hara, arms and face.  We will also review techniques covered in the first workshop.

Dynamic Body Mechanics Using the Principles of Chi Gong

Perform massage more easily without stress and strain and achieve the results that you envision.  By aligning yourself more efficiently with the geometry of the body and using an enhanced flow of chi/energy, you will see your massage improving and your tension decreasing.  Chi Gong is an ancient Oriental healing art developed as a system of techniques that teach how to increase and direct one's energy flow.

We will practive using these techniques - incorporating movement, breath and meditation - to develop our chi and apply these principles to our massage strokes and myofascial techniques, resulting in an dynamic, effective massage given in a relaxed and flowing manner.

Whether your practice is full body stress reduction massage or more specific therapeutic work, you and your clients will notice an immediate shift in results.

Prerequisites:This class is open to graduates and students of massage and bodywork.      

Please bring: 1 set of sheets, unscented lotion/cream, and note taking supplies.  Wear comfortable clothes that you

This class is split into two sections: Maternity Massage and Infant Massage class.

During the Maternity Massage section of class you will: review of the basics or receive an introduction to the specialty pregnancy massage, learning safe and effective pregnancy massage client positioning,  draping and pregnancy massage techniques and precautions and contraindications to support women through their healthy pregnancies.

You will learn how to teach massage techniques that ease discomfort; relieve tension; facilitate healthy weight gain; techniques to relax parents and baby; help the parents/caregivers incorporate loving touch, use calming tones and soothing words, communicate good touch and compassion for your baby, helpful hints for specific ailments/conditions (colic and gas, chest and nasal congestion, premature babies), and general massage techniques specifically for babies and their stages of growth.
