Table Thai Yoga Massage can considerably expand your clientele base, while giving you the tools to take even better care of your body and promote a sustainable massage career. This course brings the incredible benefits of Thai Yoga Massage – including yoga-like stretching, profound relaxation and energy work – to the comforts of a massage table. Performed on a traditional massage table with the recipient fully clothed, this practice attracts a broad cross-section of clients including athletes, elderly and those who simply prefer to be massaged on a table. Therapists used to traditional table massage will reduce injuries to hands and wrists by learning to use elbows, forearms, feet and other parts of their body. Those used to Thai on a mat will augment their practice with a new, flexible form.
After completing the course you will be able to:
- Give a 60-minute flowing Thai yoga massage on a standard size massage table;
- Apply Thai foot reflexology techniques without using your thumbs; and
- Use principles of proper body alignment to massage on and around the table in a way that is deeply efficient and effective
