The techniques and concepts practiced in this course help to relieve stress and tension in the upper body; the back, shoulder blades, shoulders, neck, head and face, and the Thai techniques and strategies may also be used by table workers. Working on floor mats in four body positions, we explore a wide variety of techniques using feet, palms, forearms, elbows, palms, thumbs and fingers to release pockets of tension through stretches, compressions, acupressure, and opening techniques. We also review and refine upper body sen (energy lines), and traditional Thai techniques for the shoulders, upper back, and neck, many of which can be adapted to table work. Finally, a wide variety of manual techniques and pressure points for the head and face are presented, many of which are not taught in general massage and bodywork classes.
Herbal balms and waters are used for some of the face and neck techniques, and Thai rituals are explained and practiced. Formulas and ways to make herbal balms are discussed, and participants have ample time to give and receive each day. This is always an enjoyable workshop because the mood is meditative, and because everyone loves to receive work on their shoulders, neck, head and face. Some previous experience in Thai massage is helpful, but not necessary. Massage therapists, yoga practitioners, healers, singles, and couples are welcome. Start time each day is 9 a.m. Please join us for this exciting, fun and relaxing workshop !
