Thai Foot Massage Certificate Course 

We have introduced an online option as well as in person for all our trainings. So wherever you are all are welcome to join this 2 day course!

Looking for something unique to offer your clients? Come and learn an authentic Thai Foot Massage routine. You’ll learn how to apply massage and stretches, use the stick, and wrap the foot with a towel in the Thai traditional style. After practise the routine can be performed in an hour long appointment, or blended into your massage or reflexology session. You will also learn about the history and context of the massage, along with guidelines on contraindications and precautions. Assessment is ongoing throughout the course and if you are a qualified therapist to level 3 you will be issued with a certificate at the end of the two day training, which qualifies you to offer this skill at professional level. This is an accredited Short Course with the Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT CPD). Suitable for beginners and qualified therapists alike.

About Thai Foot Massage This therapy involves stretching and massage of the feet and lower legs, and a rosewood stick is used to stimulate reflex points on the soles of the feet. It is a very popular treatment for balancing the energy and stimulating the organs, & is pleasantly restorative. Thai Foot massage has been practiced in Thailand for 2000 years and has a rich history. Some techniques used originated in India, Japan, China, and Indonesia, which made their way along the silk roads and became integrated with the traditions of Thai medicine. In Thailand today it is practised by Buddhist monks in the sacred environment of the Temple, and also can be enjoyed in clinics or by the roadside at the market. It is a simple yet rewarding treatment that can be learned in one day.

Emerging into Spring

At last spring has come and across all our different cultures and traditions similar themes arise as it brings hope. We celebrate renewal of the green, and re-emergence of all creatures great and small after the winter of lockdown and hibernation. From worms and frogs to caterpillars and……massage therapists!

In Impossible Darkness

Do you know how the caterpillar turns?

Do you remember what happens inside a cocoon?

You liquefy.

There in the thick black of your self-spun womb, void as the moon before waxing, you melt (as Christ did for three days in the tomb) conceiving in impossible darkness the sheer inevitability of wings

by Kim Rosen

We have plenty of reason to celebrate spring here at Shiatsu and Thai Massage Training Scotland (STMTS). Firstly, we therapists sharing the space are able to return to close contact services and THE DIARY IS OPEN! Also Ruth, Lesley and I are pleased to welcome our colleague Freya of Rowan Therapies to the team of therapists in residence, she will be working on Thursdays.

Secondly – just like schools throughout the world, STMTS has adapted to change and our students have responded with incredible resilience. This year’s TYM Diploma cohort had only two weekends in person training before transferring to Zoom but all through

the winter they have hung on with open hearts and determination, and with the generosity of their family members giving themselves up for endless massages (!) the students have made it through! I am so delighted and amazed at their professionalism. Watch this space there is a group of amazing therapists just about to hit the market!

…even our school mascot Frankie was on duty for the observed assessments! Along with tutors Lesley and me, and our dedicated assistant who has nipped out for a second….

FHT Accreditation

Last year we gave ourselves a big pat on the back for becoming an accredited training provider with Federation of Holistic Therapists. This year I am pleased to be invited to represent STMTS and Well Mother with a specialist Pregnancy Massage workshop at the Virtual Congress. I had a blast making the video during lockdown and my past history as a performer and digital film maker came in handy! You can see the end product (edited in iMovie with great sophistication) in June at FHT Virtual Congress
