85-Hour Traditional Thai Massage Foundation Training in Nelson, BC: Northern Style Traditional Thai Massage
Develop a solid foundation in Thai Massage with training in the classic practice of the Northern style – Nuad-Bo-Rarn. Nuad means to touch with the intention of healing and Bo-Rarn is a Sanskrit word meaning something that is ancient and revered.
The course is eleven days and the training provides a strong foundation in Thai Massage. It’s a classic style derived from the Shivago Kormapaj lineage taught at the Old Chiang Mai hospital and ITM in Thailand.
This comprehensive certification course is 85 hours of instruction and is taught in two segments:
Foundation 1: Five days
Foundation 2: Five days plus 1 practicum day
In Foundation 1 you will learn all four positions: Supine; Sideline Position; Prone; and Seated.
As mindfulness is the most essential attribute of an exceptional Thai Massage practitioner, each day starts with thirty minutes to one hour of yoga, QiGong, stretching, Ruesri Dat Ton or meditation.
The course is primarily hands-on. You will learn approximately 130 techniques, significantly more than you need to create a 90-minute session, providing you creative alternatives to fully customize your session.
Francine, your instructor, emphasizes the practitioner’s body alignment while performing the techniques to ensure that students are receiving maximum benefit for their own bodies.
