This course provides the therapist with a good introduction or review of core techniques in supine, prone and side lying positions that provide the therapist with the foundation upon which more advanced work can be added. We will be working less with our hands and ore with our feet, forearms, elbows, knees and fists to create slow, rhythmic bodywork which helps to calm the nervous system, relieve discomfort and improve mobility. Compression, traction, tapotement and stretching will be carefully applied within the client’s safety boundaries. Emphasis is on proper body mechanics for the practitioner and knowing how to vary the techniques for the client’s anatomy. When performed properly Thai Massage feels wonderful as it relieves stress and pain.

Contraindications and physical considerations for clients will be discussed, demonstrated and taught so that students will learn how to safely work within a client's physical and emotional requirements. Adaptations will be learned. At the end of this course the student can expect to know enough material to give a balanced 1 hour Thai massage.
