Thai Yoga Massage is a unique and powerful healing art that has been an integral part of Traditional Thai Medicine for thousands of years. Thai Massage blends elements of Acupressure, Yoga, Reflexology, Physiotherapy, Meditation, Energy Healing, Chiropractic and Ayurvedic wisdom.
This 10 day (60 hr) Therapeutic Thai Massage Course is infused with Traditional Techniques and Therapeutics along with Creativity. We will come together to share experience, skills and love of this amazing healing art and leave with the skills to offer this practice to others.
The retreat will focus on the teaching of Thai massage as a way of life as we open to exploring, feeling, dancing, chanting, stretching, and harmonizing with ourselves first so that we can share this practice with others. Thai Yoga Massage is a truly wonderful experience for both giver and receiver as energy blockages are released, boundaries dissolve and deep healing occurs in a space of presence and meditation.
Traditional Thai Massage has its roots in the Indian systems of Yoga and Ayurveda. It is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Baccha, the legendary founder of Thai massage. He was a physician to the Sangha, the order of Buddhist monks and nuns, at the time of the Buddha. They call him Doctor Shivago and to this day honor him as “The Father of Medicine”.
Around 2000 years ago, Thai Massage was brought from India to Thailand along with Buddhism. Since then it has been practiced, developed and handed down through the generations. It was never seen solely as massage but as a spiritual practice, and until fairly recently was mostly practiced in the Thai Buddhist temples.
Meet your Facilitator:
Thai Yoga Massage is a very holistic therapy where the human being is seen and treated as an ever-changing network of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects that all influence each other. Its primary aim is to restore and balance the body’s energy system which comprises of 10 energy lines that run through the body called Sen Lines, similar to Meridian Lines. These energy lines cannot be seen, but are felt and are a part of many Eastern healing traditions. The vital life force that is called Prana in Sanskrit, Chi in Chinese and Ki in Japanese, travels through these meridians, supplying the body with the energy that is necessary for its survival and healthy functioning.
Due to physical or emotional trauma, bad posture, injuries or limiting belief systems this energy can get trapped or blocked, causing physical and emotional dis-ease. Thai Yoga Massage with its amazing multitude of techniques and adjustments can release these blockages and bring the body back to its natural equilibrium where perfect balance and well being are present.
