This two-day course (Tuesday-Wednesday) explores the many ways to creatively and effectively use your feet as you work in traditional Thai massage. We study and refine several critical techniques for working lateral and posterior leg lines, the hips and the upper and lower back. We focus on ways to utilize sensing with our feet to detect energy blocks and pockets of tension, and ways to ground ourselves while using feet in a standing position. We also practice ways to use the feet for gentle balancing and suspension poses that encourage tension and stress to leave our clients.
Working with your feet helps to create more grounded and balanced sessions for clients. It also allows the therapist to work in a more relaxed state, and reduces stress and muscle tension. When the therapist is relaxed and is working from the core, the client responds more positively, and the process of self healing is encouraged.
This an extremely popular workshop which can easily change the way you approach your work on the mat. Join us for a unique and fun workshop. Stop palming so much, and save your wrists. Use your feet more often!
There are 3 places available.
