WHAT IS TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE?
Heir to Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and Yoga, Traditional Thai Massage is proven to relieve physical and mental stress and prevent a great deal of complaints and diseases (energy imbalances).
According to Thai tradition, healing lies in the belief that all forms of life are based on vital energy (lom) which is transported along invisible lines (sen) passing through the body. Thai massage seeks to free energy blockages by stimulating the natural flow of the vital energy in order to maintain a general balance.
Our philosophy is based on “learning by doing”.
90% of the training consists of practice; giving and receiving massages.
This will allow the student to finish the course with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to deliver the postures and movements in a holistic massage.
