Advanced Thai Seated Massage

1 day – with Sarah Urquhart-Taylor


Nuad Bo-Rarn (Northern style ancient Thai Massage) is a unique form of body therapy that incorporates practitioner assisted Yoga stretching exercises, trigger point therapy, deep tissue, energy work and acupressure to stretch muscles and release tension in joints.

Sometimes referred to as “Lazy man’s yoga”, Nuad Bo-Rarn Thai massage is performed on a mat rather than a table, which allows for highly effective use of the practitioner’s body weight, rather than muscular force. Thai massage incorporates elements from many other modalities including Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Myofascial Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy and structural integration.

Thai Massage is a fantastic therapy to use with sports people, or any client who would benefit from improved flexibility. It will also give you extra techniques to complement existing remedial massage skills. It focuses on safe use of body weight and body mechanics for the practitioner and allows you to give a deep, effective treatment without straining your own body!

Advanced Thai Massage - Seated

Over the course of the day, you will learn to safely deliver a sequence of Thai Massage postures and stretches to a client in the seated position on the floor. This will cover the upper body: Back, neck and shoulders, arms and hands. You will also be shown a head and face massage using Thai acupressure points specifically chosen to help relieve the symptoms of conditions such as headaches, migraines, sinusitis and TMJ problems.
