Learn how to integrate Thai yoga massage techniques into your existing couch-massage practice.
This CPD course will teach you how to give a couch massage with dynamic, flowing movements using joint manipulation, stretching, compression work and Thai acupressure.
You’ll learn how to use your body-weight and body positioning to apply deeper, more effective pressure without straining your hands, thumbs and wrists. It’s a great way to bring variety into your work and to alleviate the repetitive movements of a traditional, Western, massage treatment.
The course is ideal for massage therapists who are already trained in couch massage and are looking to increase their massage techniques and to extend their potential career. It’s also perfect for those trained in Thai yoga massage (floor-based) who are looking to expand their business by transferring their skills to the couch.
The main course is taught over two days in which we’ll cover:
Theory of Thai yoga massage and energy lines
Location of some Sen (energy) lines
Basic Thai massage techniques
Effective stretches for the client in Supine and Prone position
How to use your whole body safely and effectively
Good body positioning to achieve maximum effect with minimal effort
