This workshop explores a wide variety of techniques that address the upper back, shoulders, shoulder blades, clavicle, neck, head and face. We practice in traditional style on floor mats, but many of the techniques may be incorporated into other forms of bodywork, including table massage.
Working in all body positions, we explore a wide variety of techniques using feet, palms, forearms, elbows, thumbs and fingers. Participants explore ways to release stored tension through stretches, compressions, fascia release, and opening techniques. We also review and refine traditional Thai techniques for the shoulders, upper back, and neck. Finally, a wide variety of manual techniques and powerful pressure points for the head and face are practiced. Herbal balms and Thai herbal water are used for some of the face and neck techniques.
Participants have time to give and receive each day. This is always an enjoyable workshop because the mood is meditative, and everyone loves to receive work on their shoulders, neck, head and face. Join us !
