Mini Thai Workshops – Thai Massage for everyone
Here’s a wonderful opportunity for a taster training of this very special dynamic healing art from Thailand.
Come along and learn how to give relaxing Thai massage techniques to bring ease to the mind and body, both for the giver and the receiver! We begin with a short yoga and meditation warm up to get us in the mindset for relaxing touch. Then you’ll be ready to learn the wonderful techniques of Thai therapy. You can use these skills to benefit your family and friends, or if you are a bodywork professional you can include them in your existing therapy routines. You can select workshops in a variety of traditional Thai skills. We hold mini workshops in Thai Yoga Massage, Thai Facial techniques, Hot herbal compress skills, Thai Sitting position, Thai Foot Massage or Thai Abdominal massage. You can read more about them by checking the availability dates below. The half day workshops are fun and accessible, fully clothed, no previous experience necessary, and you don’t need to be super fit, many techniques can be integrated into a table massage, or for Thai Yoga massage you need to be just agile enough to kneel on at floor level. Come with a friend or on your own, relax and enjoy!
These workshops are also ideal as a taster session for anyone considering our professional level diploma course.
Self-isolating? Need to do this online? Here’s how – Grab a member of your household or bubble, grab a device to stream a ZOOM and learn without the risk but with all the fun! You can take turns and you swap places so that you can both practise the techniques AND receive them (please register both people) or it can just you learn by yourself and your friend benefits from having you practise all those wonderful techniques on them (in this case no need for them to register – just you).

How to make your own Thai Hot Herbal Compress course is suitable for beginners and professionals alike. Thai Hot Herbal Compress Massage (Luk Pra Kob) is a wonderfully warming treatment, perfect for this time of year. Unlike some of the commercial training courses which use manufactured compresses, we will be making our own from selected herbs and roots (supplied). You’ll learn about the properties of the herbs so that you can tailor the contents to the needs of the individual, and you’ll learn how to wrap them into a compress. This mini course teaches you a skill that will make your friends or clients very happy this winter! Entry Requirements: No previous qualification is required.
More about Compresses: Hand made herbal compresses are steam heated to release the aroma and properties of the herbs, such as Eucalyptus and lime leaf, frankincense resin and borneo camphor. Then they are patted, pressed, pounded and pummelled on the body. A very tonifying and restoring treatment, adaptable for everyone, relieves muscular tension, deep bruising or torn muscles, good for respiratory ailments, water retention, fatigue, fertility, post natal, you name it!
