Thai Massage Techniques for Table Massage


Thai massage uses rhythmic acupressure and yoga stretching movements to improve energy flow, release tension and promote wellbeing. The hallmarks of Thai massage, including table Thai massage, include: the use of momentum and gravity rather than muscular strength; working along energy lines called sen lines; rocking; and range-of-motion assisted stretching.


Traditional Thai Massage is usually carried out on the floor with the client fully clothed, and without the use of carrier oils. Thai Table Massage is an adaptation of this treatment that can be carried out on a normal portable massage table, using Thai techniques alongside your oil massage movements.


Benefits of Thai Table Massage for your Clients


Greater mobility, flexibility and range of motion equal greater freedom of movement and reduced pain for your clients. All this can be achieved via Table Thai massage.


Benefits of Thai Table Massage for you as a Therapist


There is a significant difference in the quality of touch when you use gravity, body weight and momentum as opposed to muscular strength from a static position. Thai Table massage allows therapists of any size to perform effective, deep-tissue massage without the risk of injury or exhaustion. Thai massage is effective because it uses leverage, momentum and gravity.


Thai Table Massage is one of the best ways to bring balance, fresh technique and perspective to your career while taking care of your well-being.

More Information


The workshop will be largely practical in content and as a result, you will need appropriate clinic workwear for the duration of the course. This is very much a hands-on day therefore allowing sufficient time to practice and perform the techniques under the guidance of the tutor. During the course, you will partner up with another therapist and will get the chance to perform the techniques taught as well as being the recipient. This is because understanding what the technique should feel like is an invaluable tool for you as a therapist.
