Customised programs for extended and intensive Thai Massage studies are available:
We understand that students coming to Sunshine Massage School are here for serious studies.
Often students have a limited amount of time in Chiang Mai and would like to maximize their study by combining courses into one longer, more comprehensive program.
Each of our courses can be taken individually, or as part of a larger curriculum comprised of multiple courses.
Among the many interesting courses offered, we suggest:
Advanced Thai Traditional Massage: Side Position
Developing techniques and whole body massage in the side position.
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.
