ThaiMassage with the Feet
In this unique 4-day course, we are going to open up the possibilities of offering Thai massage by using our feet.
Working with your feet is a great tool to have as a massage therapist, as it allows your arms and wrists to have a rest and can help when massaging more heavy people with a strong constitution.
During this course, we will address our own issues related to balance, steadiness and centering, which initiates a strong connection to the earth and qualities such as feeling grounded, nurtured and supported. Using the feet in this way opens up the meridians in the foot and brings this level of sensitivity in our daily life as we walk, stand, dance, run, climb and use our feet to move and support us. It opens our connection to the Earth to operate on a much deeper level.
In terms of massage treatments, we will learn how to use the feet in both static and dynamic ways in the prone, supine and side positions. We will practice together daily healing therapeutic Qi Gong to enhance this connection to the earth and stimulate the earth channel in our bodies. We also experience how to work with our knees, forearms.
