Intro to Thai Medicinal Herbs and Herbal Compresses

In this course we learn to mix and prepare fresh and dry herbs and roots, and we practice giving and receiving Thai herbal treatments. We use the techniques of traditional Thai healers, not simply the spa techniques that are taught in many massage programs. Each person returns home with materials and compresses for future practice. This is a unique opportunity to study closely with the teacher, and to work in an intimate setting with a small group of people.

If you don’t have any previous knowledge of working with Thai herbs, this is a wonderful introduction. If you have already studied herbal compress therapy, you will learn new techniques and concepts to go much deeper in your work, and to provide optimal benefits to your clients. The workshop is open to all, but of special interest to massage therapists, herbalists, spa therapists, yoga practitioners, and alternative healers. Previous experience in herbalism or massage therapy is helpful, but not required, and a certificate is awarded upon completion.

Treat yourself, your friends, and your clients to Thai herbal compresses, infusions and teas. Join us for a workshop that can change the way your work with your friends, family, and clients !
