About the Certification Program
The goal of Thai Massage is to improve health and feelings of well being by releasing blockages from strategically located energy lines throughout the body. Stretching, rhythmic compressions, acupressure, assisted yoga poses, and range-of-motion exercises are just a few of the techniques that are utilized during a typical session. Energy balancing techniques are also used to encourage healing.
This certification program is designed for massage therapists who would like to expand their practice, and for yoga teachers who would like to learn new techniques for hands-on modifications and more effective private yoga sessions.
