Thai Massage Essentials – Layers & Lines

Study your Thai massage foundations and experience a carefully planned and finely executed syllabus that your practice and passion can build upon.

Throughout this training course, we look at the true history of Thai massage and its Buddhist medicine roots, dispelling myths and bringing a structure to life that is based on ancient medical texts, which were translated only recently.

Over the days students learn simple, effective hands-on and practical techniques that work deep into the body.  These are enriched by lectures on Thai medical theory and anatomy, history and lineage, ethics, and Sen/trench theory.

In this module, we explore basic Thai anatomy and Element Theory, which is integrated with Natasha’s knowledge of the body and over 20 years of experience in the therapy field.

Lessons include spiritual practices and Reusi Dat Ton (Thai yoga/self care). Students learn to use elbows, palms, thumbs, feet, knees and forearms

Techniques taught on the course:

  • Beating
  • Compressions
  • Stretching
  • Rolling
  • Squeezing
  • Thumbing
  • Rubbing
  • Range Of Motion

The foundation module is the first step towards a professional qualification (click here to find out more). It can be taken without previous knowledge of bodywork. We also welcome existing Thai Massage practitioners who want to add depth to their skills.

A detailed training manual will be given to each student as part of the course.

Our intern programme: We support our students in a very generous and unusual way via our intern programme.   We really want to get the best out of you and so we actively encourage you to repeat the training.  Students can apply to take an internship with us which allows those who have completed module 1 or 2 training with us to repeat the training as many times as wanted for free (as long as it is the same content and there are spaces available). We carefully consider applicants as we want students who are serious about their massage practice to be able to deepen their knowledge and continue their studies. This is our way of supporting an on-going commitment to a developing massage practice.
