This course is for you if..

  • You are a physiotherapist, osteopath or you are dedicated to alternative therapies and you would like to discover Thai massage to complement your therapies.
  • You are a yoga teacher and you want to develop the quality of touch, the sure way to adjust the body in relaxing poses, offer “the invitation to Savasana” in your private classes, learn more about the human body.
  • If you don’t have any previous experience, but you really want to know the magnificent world of massage and you dare to please your curiosity. Welcome!

Methodology

  • The group is reduced to 6 people, so the teaching is individualized and the quality of it guaranteed.

  • In each class we learn a new sequence of stretching, pressures and movements, corresponding to a different part of the body.

  • It is important to learn a sequence at the beginning and integrate the fundamentals well, but also develop your ability to be in the present moment, feel and listen fully. Use the appropriate techniques for the receiver. During this course you will have an opportunity to connect with this meditative space.

  • We will put a special focus on the quality of touch, alignment of your spine, fluid transitions and how to use your body weight without effort. My intention is to share with you how to offer the massage starting from the presence and mindfulness, so that your hand is the extension of your heart (in fact, it is!)

  • We will start each morning with preparatory exercises: to strengthen your thumbs, feet and ankles, yoga poses for opening hips and back, exploration of the body in motion, partner exercises, dance, self-massage techniques. These practices prepare you to offer the massage with much more awareness, connection and comfort.

  • Most of the course is the practice, but you will also learn about the history, principles of Thai medicine, how to prepare a health interview, precautions.

  • Is highly recommended to offer at least 10 sessions to 5 different people till the end of the course

What value does this course have?

  • You will be able to offer full thai massage session in the positions that compose it: supine, side position, prone, and sitting, from the feet to the head

  • You will develop your own ability to feel, listen and connect with your intuition to offer the treatment that suits your receiver best. 

  • You will learn how to use your body weight in a healthy and appropriate way. There are many ways to accommodate your body when giving massage. I will guide you to avoid discomforts and unnecessary efforts.

  • You will learn the practices of self-care: self-massage, stretches, breathing exercises and meditation practices. 

  • You will be able to support another’s person wellbeing and help to rediscover sensation of lightness and vitality in their bodies. 


"This thai massage training for me was a beautiful group exploration of the body wisdom. I couldn't imagine I would feel the same profound sensations giving as receiving. The energy created in this training is very powerful, respectful and everything is prepared with absolute care and detail. Paulina was guiding us patiently, passionately and with the smile until the last minute of each day. I couldn't recommend this training enough"
