Thai Yoga on the Table with Kelly Scott

September 8th & 9th, 2023

9:00 am – 5:30 pm

15 CEs/ NCBTMB Approved

Everyone Welcome!

This is an innovative class incorporating Thai yoga for therapists working on the massage table. Content will include a full-body Thai yoga treatment, safe effective stretching techniques, and improved body mechanics for practitioners. We will also observe foundational principles of yoga elements applied in Thai massage. This course is perfect for the traditionally trained therapist looking to refresh and deepen their work with less strain on their hands and wrists.
 
Benefits of Thai on The Table:
  • You do not have to use linens, or oils and no one needs to undress.
  • For sanitation purposes, it is easy to wipe everything down.
  • The principles and techniques in this course are a combination of Thai (compression & stretching) and Osteopathy principles which allow deeper access to the body without pain or force-driven techniques.
I believe this to be one of the finest courses and can easily be done on a mat on the floor if this is your preference.
 
Table Thai is the bridge between Eastern and Western methodologies that help the therapist in their body mechanics for the longevity of the profession. A new service is offered to your menu of services or a stand-alone service that makes you unique!
