The Sacred Art of Thai Massage is much more than Massage...
“In honor of our ancient sacred traditions across the globe of planet earth, I am totally honored to be exposed to the Art of Thai Massage and to actually participate in this introductory class. This lets me know that I would definitely be taking the advance classes in the future. I love the multi-dimensional connection to the energy field of the client and the depths of level you can reach esoterically. It’s amazing that you can detect all types of physio-emotional and physical elements that obstruct the flow in mind, body and soul. This is absolutely breath-taking.”
“A journey into oneness,
Soaring above, below, within…
Peace, silence and breath…
Awakening to the depths, to the nuances from the great mystery,
Finding comfort in the unknown.”
“Thai Massage for me is learning a deeper level of trust in the universe and in myself. It is the constant unfolding of truth in every moment and a deeper awareness of all that is. It is a vehicle for remembering who we are, and it is as profound for the therapist as it is for the client. It is really a very intimate experience, ultimately, where a connection is created from soul to soul, and it can be non-verbal or verbal as well. Thai Massage is also about creating balance on all levels, but may require an intense journey before arriving at that greater balance and harmony. It requires a loving and open heart and the ability to give and receive graciously in a flowing dance of energy. It is about integrating the harmony and joy that is ours already into our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies even. That Massage is ultimately about connecting and integrating with the highest level of our divinity, evolving ourselves and the world around us, in a way that we are able to live and be in this world in a way that expresses our most profound love and joy and passion fearlessly.”
“When I went to massage school I knew there were a few types of massage that I wanted to learn A shiatsu, Thai Massage and Lomilomi. The integration between mind, body and spirit is what Thai Massage is to me. It’s healing on many levels that make up a human being. Ironically enough, I’ve incorporated some of the movements from Thai Massage in my work, and not until now did I really know what it meant. Thai Massage is like facilitated yoga, with an awareness of energy channels and pressure points. It’s cleansing and detoxifying not only of the acids in the muscles but also of negative emotions. In these couple of days not only have I learned the fundamentals and origin of Thai Massage, but I’ve also received healing on all levels of existence. I look forward to furthering my studies in Thai Massage.”
