About the Workshop:


Table Thai is an approved 12 CEU hour course in TX, AR and LA and also gives NCBTMB credits. This class is specifically designed to help licensed massage therapists learn how to use Thai massage on the massage table with ease. We go over easy-to-incorporate options from Robert Gardner's "Introduction to Thai Massage Workbook" and show you how to work effectively, using less hand strain while helping clients with back pain and other areas of chronic tension and pain.

In Table Thai we will show you how to incorporate this modality into your sessions. This work will allow you to cultivate a much higher level of body mechanics, working, when needed, more deeply with new methods to address clients' presenting complaints.  You will be guided through class with close table-side supervision.  We will create an open space for questions about massage applications, Thai massage and how to blend this healing art into your table work.

Although previous study of Thai Massage is welcomed, it is not required for this class.  First-time as well as veteran students are all welcome.

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will have a basic understanding of "sen" lines and how they are used in session.
