Practice weekend - We have a weekend of practice in December / January, we will fix that date together as a group. Students have 3/4 months to do case studies and then take the exam at the end of March / early April.
Over the 12 days we will learn a full body Thai Massage sequence looking at techniques in the 4 main positions; prone, supine, side and sitting. Thai massage helps to balance and align the body to encourage space and mobility in the bones & joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and improve the function in the internal organs. It is highly effective at addressing and releasing pain and injury, bad postural patterns and physical and emotional blockages.
Special care and attention will be taken in teaching healthy and effective use of the body whilst giving massage, to ensure correct and sustainable postural patterns, we will also learn a daily self-care exercise and maintenance sequence.
A evening and full day workshop, to introduce the principles of Thai massage. Looking at the fundamental aspects of stretching, compression and breath work whilst learning a short & simple Thai massage sequence to release and relax tension and holding patterns within the body. The workshop will also include a Yoga practice to help open the hips and heart in preparation for the practice of Thai Massage.
I found the course to be fulfilling on both a personal and professional level. The learning techniques and approach used by Emma, make for a relaxed and grounded environment which encourages an innate understanding of the techniques used in this discipline. I thoroughly enjoyed the tutorial weekends and look forward to broadening my knowledge through my future practice and training sessions.
