About the Course
The traditional medical massage of Thailand, more commonly known as Thai Massage, is one of the world’s oldest healing modalities. It originated in India during the Buddha’s lifetime, over 2500 years ago, and was brought to this world by a saint, the “Father Doctor Shivago Komarpahj”, a contemporary of the Buddha and some say his personal physician and the physician to the King of India. Thai Massage in Thailand is called Nuad Bo-Rarn.
Students undertaking this course will be taught the correct form of using their arms, hands, thumbs, knees, elbows and feet to perform various stretching movements. Through consistent practice, they will attempt to treat the body by applying the right pressure on the client’s energy lines called ‘Sen’ lines. Most importantly, they will learn different methods to facilitate a sense of compassion and wholeness in order to integrate the body, mind and spirit of their client.
