Is it Safe & Effective to Learn Thai Yoga Massage Online?

In an age of online learning from building a house, fixing your car and learning an instrument, there is still a lot of hesitation on whether it is safe and effective to learn Thai Yoga Massage online.

One concern is that the only true way to learn is if a teacher can watch and correct your massage. Another is that it isn’t safe and both receiver and giver could get hurt. Yet another is that to develop intuitive touch and practice at a deep level you need to cultivate that in class.

In this video, I want to spark a discussion on if it really is safe and effective to learn Thai Yoga Massage Online. So please post your comments below. But also your suggestions for how to make learning Thai Yoga Massage online safer and more effective!

I am not necessarily advocating for one mode of learning only. I think if you can come to a class and learn, that is a terrific way to learn. I also think there are some more limitations for what you can effectively teach online, especially on a platform like YouTube where you are limited in how much interaction there is between teacher and student.

At the same time, I wholeheartedly believe that if the teacher provides a solid foundation and tools for teaching and the student is responsible enough to watch those videos, to have respect for the person they are massaging and the medium, then online videos are an incredible way to learn safe and effective ways to learn Thai Yoga Massage.

What’s more it is a terrific way to expose more people to loving touch, to their birthright as healers and how this art can be just as good to give as it is to receive.
