Traveling to Thailand has spoiled me for traveling to other countries. The culture is rich and beautiful. The Buddhist temples are gorgeous and the philosophy is deep. The people are friendly.
My dollar stretches much further there. The mountains and beaches are stunning. The prevalence and availability of massage therapy is remarkable and delicious. It just doesn’t get any better than getting a Thai Massage in Thailand. And there are elephants!
So, until you can book your travel to Thailand, you can at least get an authentic Thai massage, learn it, and bring it to your clients.
Thai Massage has a completely different approach and goal than Swedish Massage. It’s relaxing but energizing. The therapist uses their body as leverage to give pressure and perform deep stretches on the client. Thai Massage is done fully clothed on a mat on the floor.
Mats will be provided for the class. And it is perfectly okay if you do not have a mat in your practice. Many of the techniques and stretches can be adapted to the table.
