This course will provide you with a strong foundation in the study of Thai Massage
You will learn:

  • 134 techniques from the Northern style tradition.
  • A therapeutic approach to the body which never goes to a level of pain or beyond the clients limits of comfort.
  • The use of proper body alignment and awareness while performing each technique.
  • All 4 positions (front, back, side and sitting) as taught by the Institute of Thai Massage (ITM) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. "Sister Program" (certificates transfer)
  • Mindfulness through yoga, meditation, and Qi Gong

Northern style is a slow, rhythmic massage focusing on soft tissue, producing a meditative and relaxing experience. The 134 techniques taught will give you 3 times more than can be performed in a 1 1/2 hour session. This gives you creative alternatives and flexibility in developing individually modified sessions. This course is recognized by the Institute in Chiang Mai as a "Sister program." People receiving this certificate may go directly to advanced training levels in Thailand if they so desire. Instruction manuals are included in the fee.

Supervised Clinic In-Clinic practice completes this program with session practice. This is a valuable opportunity to integrate the techniques from levels I and II and to learn modifications and session routines by working on clients and fellow students in the Spirit Winds Clinic. This supervised practice makes a marked difference in the time it may take a student to gain confidence with the techniques and to begin to intuitively apply them in Thai massage sessions.

Level III Advanced Sen Line Therapies
Thai massage is based on the theory that "chi" our life force energy, flows through a system of channels called sen lines. When chi is blocked tension, dysfunction or disease are created in our bodies. Using palpation combined with active and passive stretching previously learned in the Level 1 and 2 program, Level 3 focuses on advanced sen line therapies for special conditions. This then prepares you for the next level of training.

Level IV Advanced Therapeutic Thai Massage
In Level 4 you will gain in-depth knowledge of acupressure points from the Chinese system. You will learn how to work the points effectively for relieving painful conditions. You will begin to cultivate an intuitive approach to the body and how to apply therapeutic skills in a dynamic flow for transformational healing.

You will learn:

  • The theory of the energy line system used in Thai medical massage called "sen"
  • A comparison of the sen lines with the 12 meridians (Chinese) and the nadis (India)
  • The therapeutic application of sen in combination with techniques from level 1 & 2
  • Advanced therapies for special conditions
  • Acupressure points for headache, back pain, shoulder and neck problems, and numbness in the legs and arms
