More information is available on the page for Thai Massage I: Basics.

#2 - Body Mechanics & Refinement

During this 35-Hour basic skills improvement course, students will practice the full basic learning routine each day under guided supervision, focusing on proper form for the practitioner, with refinement and variations for material previously learned in the prerequisite 40-hour basic training, Thai Massage I: Basics.

We will smooth transitions in the choreography, working out the kinks and your hesitation, building confidence throughout the full length of the routine.

You will continue to learn how to use less energy in each movement, with simple adjustments to your shoulders, pelvis and midback. We will build your body awareness and positioning for your long-term comfort, and general viability for years of extended practice.

More information is available on the page for Body Mechanics & Refinement.

Classes limited to 10 new students to ensure enough time for
1-on-1 instruction and practice in a supportive environment.

No experience in massage or yoga is required!

    After the first 5 days, students will get a full day of rest on Saturday.

    On Sunday, everyone returns for a morning half-day, being led through the full massage routine by the instructor. Each student gives and receives one massage, before breaking at 2:00pm, and taking the rest of the day off. Monday and Tuesday are both intensive 8-hour days, with each student giving and receiving a full-length massage before and after the lunch break.

    The last two days are intended for supervised, unguided practice. While these sessions are supervised, students work in their own time, without constant guidance by the instructor. Students are expected to rely on their memories and workbooks to perform the basic routine, with intervention and adjustments by the instructor in the time of need.

    To be granted Basic Certification, you must safely and satisfactorily perform the routine by memory (within reasonable error, and without use of the workbook), and pass a brief, basic written test on Thai massage history, principles and theory.

    Class ends on Thursday.

    Days are 8-hours each, 9am - 6pm. (Except Sunday, 9am - 2pm)
