Thai Traditional Medicine Approach to Massage (5 days)

Like other traditional therapeutic disciplines, Thai Massage comes within its own system, its own view of the world.

Like Abhyanga in the Ayurvedic traditional system, Tuina in the traditional Chinese medicine, Nuad Boran, the Thai traditional massage belongs to the Thai traditional medicine universe.

> 1 to 5 August 2022

Foreigners when they learn Thai massage are rarely exposed to the unique and rich Thai traditional view of therapy. 

It is why Sunshine invited an experienced traditional therapist to take you through a 5 day exploration of this traditional approach.

Advanced Thai Massage: Side Position ( 5 days )

Developing techniques and whole body massage in the side position.

Massage in side position allows to work on specific places more effectively.
Massage in side position allows to work on specific places more effectively.

This course is designed to help you develop specific techniques and a whole body massage in the side position.


This approach is relevant to massage people with back pain and/or pregnant women.


As your practice of Traditional Thai Massage develops, you come to realize that an important proportion of your clients come for relief of back pain or emotional issues. Working from the side position also allows recipients to turn inwards, toward themselves, allowing the masseuse to gently facilitate the healing of emotional and physical blocks.


With pregnancy and back problems, it is often too painful to lie in the supine or prone position, but from the side position, you can still offer a complete Thai Massage treatment.

  • Thai Yoga Massage for pregnant women.
  • How to relieve back pain, both chronic and acute.
  • Assisting people in an emotional state and those who have difficulty connecting with themselves.
  • Whole body Thai Yoga Massage in the Side Position.
