16 Florida and NCBTMB CE Hours
NCBTMB Provider # 450670-08; Florida State CE Provider # 50-9043; Louisiana State CE Provider # LAP0155
Our Thai Facial Massage training classes introduce wonderful extra treatments to be able to be offer to your clients.
The Thai Facial Massage incorporates Acupressure Reflexology - Energy Work; Hot/Cold Herbal Compress treatments; and Thai-Ayurvedic neck, shoulders, hear and scalp Massage. The fusion of these massage techniques works on the energetic, muscular, circulatory, lymphatic systems, eases tension, improves blood/lymph circulation, removes toxins from the face and balances energy ki, or life force to improve overall health. Another purpose of Thai Face Massage is to work with face and head meridians and marma points (acupuncture points) to promote balance throughout the entire body.
Participants will learn how to integrate three Thai Facial Massage Protocols into their existing massage practice, rhythmic and acupressure techniques on the face, neck and upper shoulders and how to apply cool stones, hot towels and herbal compress to their clients.
These unique face massage routines will add an Eastern philosophical and technical approach to your Thai massage, and will increase your repertoire of techniques to enable you to effectively provide an invigorating and yet relaxing massage that suits your active, healthy clients who have highly physical, and stress-work demands. This type of bodywork is an increasingly popular and requested modality for health spas, as well as conventional treatments and other Massage/bodywork Therapies.
Participants will be shown:
- How does this Thai Facial Massage work
- Benefits of a Facial Massage
- Different 'Thai bodywork touch protocols':
- Neck, Shoulders, Face, Head Reflexology Work
- Thai Facial Massage

- Energy work and basic information about acupressure/marma points and how to work with them. There will be some mention of meridian/sen energy lines and the areas of the face they correspond to, but most of the class will concentrate on the Thai facial routines.
Class will consist primarily of hands-on demonstrations and hands-on practice.

Thai Facial Massage is much more than massage...
“Thai facial massage for me is a pathway, an introspection into the nature of my own divinity. Receiving and giving, Yin and Yang, opening to the Universe, bringing us in harmony between heaven and earth. Releasing and replenishing, a complete symbiosis between the giver and receiver. Both are complete recipients.”
“Delicious! A beautiful connection of mind, body and spirit. Releasing the old and allowing the new to come. Rejuvenating, relaxing, and lifting for the client. Creative art, relaxing and meditation for the therapist. Beautiful, slow work. Allowing the smiles to come back and wrinkles and worries to fade away.” --Claudia
“To me Thai Facial massage is deep energy work that facilitates healing on all levels while receiving and experiencing great insight for steps to flow my future and introspection on the micro and macro levels and the role I plat as a steward of the earth I witnessed beautiful healing in others by lovingly holding space.” --Elizabeth
“Thai Facial Massage for me is the perfect moment to meet people and receive love and give love and beautiful time to renew our life. Especially to be close to the spirit."
“A beautiful honoring of practitioner and client. It is more than just massage or facial. It transcends boundaries, truly touching all levels of being, crossing time and state of being. This embodies all that I am, honors all facets of me. As an energy worker, crystal healer, massage therapist and esthetician it becomes one and simply a healer.”
“An amazing spiritual journey of surprising revelations. A feeling of awe and inspiration are continually flowing to me and from me. I feel as if the Divine Universal Love guided me gently into a space my soul was thirsty and hungry to find.”
“A spiritual experience between giver and receiver. When done with proper intent can be healing for both.”
“Thai Facial Massage for me is love. It’s the ability to give love and to receive love. “
“The most personal experience I have experienced with myself. It was a summary of my whole body, mind and spirit and their communication to each other. At times relaxing, at times powerfully intense and scary. The sequence by the end of the treatment brought balance and a sense of ownership. A roller coaster ride, just like life. Would not trade the chance to experience it again.”
“A journey of a thousand words, a thousand emotions, and a thousand sensations. To be able to enter so many realms and access the bounty of joy is all a human could ever dream of.”
“An amazing connection with spirit, community and the person or client before you, and then in turn it evolves into an amazing connection with yourself!!! It comes full circle.”
Namaste and blessings to all!
In addition to our Miami Thai massage certification program, we host annual retreats in Chiang Mai, Thailand for those who seek an immersion in the culture that gave birth to this beautiful art of bodywork…
Thank you for becoming part of our mission.
