Thai on the Table
What is Thai on the Table?
Many of our students love Traditional Thai massage or have heard about how effective it can be. However, not all therapists can perform a routine on a Thai mat on the floor and not all clients are able to get up and down from the floor to be able to receive this service. So this class is the best of both worlds. In this class, our students will learn how to perform Thai massage while the client is on the table.
We take many of the concepts that you would apply in a Traditional Thai massage session and translate them into a massage that you can perform on the table. You will learn how to use your whole body to treat your client's whole body. You will use your hand, your feet, your arms, knees and legs to apply specific compressions and you learn how to safely move your client into a series of yoga-like stretches. Thai Massage can be varied to suit a wide range of physical needs and it often incorporates a form of physical therapy that will help to increase your client's range of motion and muscular strength. Thai Massage works with the client's potential for movement and strives to create a free flow of energy systems. Traditionally, it can be more energizing and more rigorous than classic forms of massage, but at the same time, the treatment can be quite meditative and enjoyable to give as well as receive. Your clients will feel great and you will too!
This technique can be incorporated into your already existing massage routine or can be performed as a stand-alone service. It is not necessary for your client to disrobe to receive a Thai treatment which will eliminate a major objection to receiving massage. This is a perfect routine to provide at sporting events, gyms, trade shows and more.
Thai for the Table course is a perfect complement to any practice and is extremely beneficial to athletes, the elderly and people who prefer to receive massage on a table. This is an ideal therapy for the massage therapist who, for whatever reason, wants to incorporate Thai massage into their sessions but prefers not to work on the floor. You will learn a Thai for the Table routine that you can also incorporate aspects of into your regular routine. You will love this modern version of traditional Thai Massage, which is performed on a massage table.
