About the event
This is the first workshop out of a series of three. This is the most basic introduction, where students will learn about a massage that could last about 2 hours. The idea is like a menu of a restaurant, many different item options will be shared so that you can choose what you put as a starter-main-dessert. The first day of the workshop, will be about massaging the back of the body, with the person lying on their belly, and mostly using the cat-walk technique, and a few stretching movements. The second day will be mostly dedicated to Thai-yoga massage, with the patient laying on their back, and a lot of movement will be taught for which a lot of practice will be required to anchor the techniques. The third and last day, will be about touching he hands, arms and head of the patient, using more thumb pressure techniques and addressing a few vital points. Each day of the workshop is composed of ½ day of theory and practice taught and supervised by the teacher, and a ½ day of self practice by the students themselves without teacher supervision. It is essential for each student to give as much as they receive in order to implement each movement. Communication between students is crucial in order to improve their technique.
