Thai Massage Summer Saturdays

Thai Massage Summer Saturdays

Are you an adventurous massage therapist wishing to explore the wonderful possibilities of Thai bodywork techniques? Or a curious yogi or dancer wanting to get hands on? Or an experienced Thai therapist looking for new inspiration?

Come and help us warm up our new, larger, sunny studio in Charing Cross! It’s time for some summer fun exploring the possibilities of Thai Massage techniques:

  • Each day runs 10am-4.45pm and will incorporate elements of: 
  • Warm up session – pairs yoga
  • Learning new, inspiring techniques
  • Spontaneity and Fun
  • Exploring and understanding their benefits through Somatic experiences
  • Spiritual Practice – Metta Meditation (Loving Kindness)
  • Playtime price: only £75 per day of fun!

Table Thai – taking it higher! Saturday 25th June 2022 10am-4.45pm: We’ll be learning techniques that can be adapted for the massage couch, and integrated into an oil massage. Northern style Thai Yoga Massage usually takes place on a mat, on the floor, but there is plenty of scope to integrate these moves into a Swedish or deep tissue session. Will we be bringing oil to Thai massage? Or will we be bringing Thai to the oil massage? Let’s explore the best of both, so which ever world you come from, we’ll be meeting in the middle. Let’s get dynamic – stretch to impress!

Flying Thai Yoga Massage! (Acro Yoga) Saturday 13th August 2022 10am-4.45pm

Our students have had so much fun on these training days and have requested a flying Thai yoga play date, where we can explore some of the lifting techniques and ‘flying moves’. These are surprisingly easy and safe – using tonic and leverage rather than strength. Lucy and Freya will be showing a few of these more unusual techniques of Thai Massage, and you can come along just for fun, or you can really explore how they can integrate into your treatments to wow your more adventurous clients. Usually Thai massage is about ‘letting go’ but with these moves, the trick is not to let go!

Thai Massage with the Feet: Saturday 10th September 2022 10am-4.45pm

After flying, come back down to and learn how to apply some of the best Thai stretching and pressing techniques but with the feet! These skills can be performed incredibly gently for more delicate work, as well as with deep pressure for the sturdier client who benefits from powerful dynamic techniques. You will have plenty of time to practise and explore how these techniques can integrate into your treatments and give a new experience for your clients, and rest your wrists and hands at the same time!

Two for One! – Adapting for Pregnancy. next running Thursday 20th October. (trained therapists only): This is a little more grounded and specific. We can’t be too careful with our pregnant client so you’ll be getting specialist information about how to safely adapt your treatment for a two-for-one! You’ll need to have a qualification to register for this training day. It is suitable for certified Massage, Shiatsu, or Thai Massage therapists. It is a standalone training day and also it forms the introduction to the 4 day specialist pregnancy training. If you continue to the full training you’ll even be qualified to treat the 3 for 1! (If the numbers are confusing you, I’m talking twins)! Read more about it here: https://stmts.co.uk/courses/massage-for-pregnancy/

  • £75 per day (except pregnancy day is £90 with certificate)
  • All enquiries welcome info@stmts.co.uk

Spring News 2022

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower
Drives my green age; that blasts the roots of trees
Is my destroyer.
And I am dumb to tell the crooked rose
My youth is bent by the same wintry fever.

Dylan Thomas

On first glance this poem speaks of youth, hope and strength, a force for growth, like the arrival of spring, energising nature to re-emerge after winter. The poem expresses how this insistence toward growth may sometimes be matched with a resistance, or a sense of being stuck. When this arises, gently orienting towards yielding and flexibility allows the path toward growth to unfold and be revealed in it’s own time.

Springtime energy needs to flow, to get moving after the winter of stillness, and this may cause us to feel stiffness or tension in our bodies more keenly. Or, we may be inspired to take positive, renewing action in our life, but feel blocked, uncertain how to follow through. We can then experience frustration or fatigue in the face of these difficulties that seem to hold back progress.

This is the energy of the liver and gall bladder meridians in Shiatsu. Spring is the time to promote the smooth flowing of these powerfully creative and decisive energies. Gentle stretching, flexibility of mind, and opening of the heart can help. Eastern bodywork such as Shiatsu and Thai Massage include stretches and acupressure, which help to promote ease and flow, and bring us back to our natural inclination to growth and renewal in this season.
