Get a solid foundation in Thai Massage and learn the classic routine 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 classic style derived from the Shivago Kormapaj lineage taught at the Old Chiang Mai hospital in Thailand.
The course is taught in eleven days and the training provides a strong foundation in Thai Massage. 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
You will learn to practice 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. There are over one hundred 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.
In addition to learning the Thai Massage form, you will learn about:
• Thai Massage history
• Self-care tips for the Thai Massage practitioner
• Tips on how to start and finish a session
• Mantra prayers in Sanskrit
• Wind gates
• Sen lines
• Working stances
• Transition moves
• From and fluidity of Thai Massage
• Massage routine
• Cultivating Chi
• Breathing exercises and more…
The advantage of studying with Francine is that her classes are small and intimate ensuring maximum learning and attention to the students. Class size maximum of 12 students.
Upon completion, students will receive a certificate recognized by Thai Healing Alliance International.

“Francine is astute in her approach to Thai Bodywork. In her course, she exposes the tradition, spirituality, and the all-important aspect of Chi besides the body mechanics – which I found fascinating and valuable. Her attention to detail is meticulous. Francine is very detailed in her instruction and also very patient and this was immensely helpful to me. As a learner, I felt I was flowing smoothly. To me, this has been a great foray into a modality that I intend to combine harmoniously with another.”
