"Thai Massage is like a thousand gentle waves washing over the body.
Thai massage is like yoga for lazy people. Instead of doing yoga, they do it for you." --Chongkol Setthakorn

Study the ancient, dynamic healing art of Thai Massage/Nuad Bo-rarn, and step into a vast lineage of eastern folk medicine. Thai Massage, yoga, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and other eastern methodologies & philosophies all have their roots in the Vedas, and so have many similarities. Thai bodywork and Thai medicine evolved within the Buddhist temples and countryside of Thailand & southeast Asia as a complete & distinct holistic system.
Deeply grounded in metta, or loving-kindness, the work is healing & meditative for both the recipient and the therapist.
In this therapeutic style, we combine passive, yoga-like stretching with massage pressure along sen (energy) lines of the body, allowing for a deep, yet gentle unwinding. The work is practiced on a mat on the floor, & the recipient remains fully dressed in comfy clothing.
Thai Massage is a natural addition to any massage or bodywork practice.

This course is part of the curriculum of International Training Massage School (ITM) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Following completion of level one, students may continue on to ITM level two at ITM in Chiang Mai, with Jenn Will, or with any registered ITM teacher. The ITM curriculum stands out as a very thorough, structured, and comprehensive educational program  grounded in both the northern-style Thai massage lineage and Thai culture. Continuity and recognition within a parent school in Thailand is a valuable asset for anyone wishing to deepen their studies there in the future. This course provides a solid foundation for life-long study and practice of Nuad Bo-rarn within any tradition.


Description of Level I: Foundation of Thai Massage
*This course covers Front position (feet to face).
*Introduces the concept of energy lines (SEN) and Yin/Yang.
*Teaches stretches, acupressure points, and proper use of body weight using thumbs, palms, elbows, knees and feet.
*Emphasizes deep-focused abdominal (Hara) work.
*Upon completion, students will be able to perform an effective 1-2 hour Thai massage.

Participants will wear comfy, modest clothes (no shorts or skirts; wear layers for temperature comfort)
Please bring a yoga mat, 1 blanket and 1 pillow 
We'll plan on one hour for lunch, but if there's the need for longer lunches, we'll have to adjust the schedule to fulfill all 30 hours
