Would you like to become professionally qualified to give relaxing yet deep body work in the traditional style of northern Thailand?
Thai Massage Training Scotland offers a unique opportunity to train for a diploma in authentic Thai Yoga Massage in Glasgow, taught by trained teachers who apprenticed with masters from the temples of Northern Thailand. Upon successful completion of the course you will be competent to give professional level Thai yoga massage and you will be able to secure professional insurance to practice.
In simple stages, you will be shown how to apply a wide repertoire of techniques, ranging from gentle palm and thumb pressure using your body weight effectively, to applying passive stretches and yoga poses to your client confidently. You will have plenty of supervised practice time and will learn about the theory of this ancient healing art; the sen energy lines, breathing and meditation techniques, and the historical context of the therapy.
Traditional Thai yoga massage is a dynamic healing art involving massage techniques, gentle palm and thumb pressure, and passive applied stretches that resemble the poses of yoga. The receiver wears loose clothing. Originally it was practised by monks at the temple, and is a spiritual practice which stems back to the times of Buddha and before. The massage techniques are applied as a moving meditation of metta (loving kindness). It is a truly rewarding experience which leaves both giver and receiver more stretched, relaxed and in balance. Course teachers: Lucy Trend and Maria Hawkins.
