Thai Foot Reflexology
October 6, 2014 @ 8:00 am - October 7, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
Who doesn’t love a good foot massage? In this workshop students will learn to give an hour long session on the feet alone that will pamper, renew and restore the feet and the whole body.
This course introduces techniques that utilize both dry and wet massage (with and without oil) as well as a Thai foot stick, to glide the lines and press the points with greater accuracy and precision than the hands alone could provide. The style we will be exploring is a method derived from Shivaga Komarpaj of the Chiang Mai school of Thai Massage, and is for everyone, therapists and lay people alike. This is a powerful healing tool that can be implemented on it’s own, or as an addition to the full body massage.
Experience with graduating students has shown that this is an invaluable service to offer to existing clients to keep them coming back for more and as a means for finding and retaining new clients.
In this 14 hour course students learn:
- A complete 60 minute Thai Foot massage
- Protocols for preparing the feet for massage
- How to apply oils to the feet
- How to use a Thai reflexology stick
No prior massage experience is necessary to be educated in this methodology and couples are welcome to attend.
Students are required to bring shea butter and the Thai stick will be made available for purchase during class
