After working extensively on the lower torso in Thai massage, if energy in the upper body is not released properly, we can leave a client feeling unbalanced, incomplete, and even vulnerable. This workshop explores a wide variety of techniques to address the shoulders, shoulder blades, clavicle, neck, head and face.
Working in all four body positions, we explore a wide variety of techniques using feet, palms, forearms, elbows, thumbs and fingers. Participants explore new and interesting techniques to release stored tension through stretches, compressions, fascia release, and opening techniques.
We review and refine traditional Thai techniques for the shoulders, upper back, and neck, including subtle suspensions and traction techniques to facilitate the release of tension in the neck. We practice important acupressure points on the head and face, many of which are not usually taught in general Thai massage classes.
Herbal balms are used for some of the face and neck techniques. The work is slow and spiritual, and each participant has time to give to and receive from various partners 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.
