ABOUT ELEVATE THAI MASSAGE
We approach Thai massage as a physical and energetic practice informed by holistic concepts of healing found in traditional Thai and Eastern medicine. Traditionally, Thai massage is practiced on a mat on the floor. For this reason, completing a Thai massage training can be an intense experience for those who are not accustomed to spending much time on the floor. Serious students must commit themselves to maintaining a healthy body that is capable of kneeling and moving around on the floor. If you'd like a softer introduction to these physical requirements then we have created the Mat-Based Body Mechanics course especially for you.
Many of the traditional Thai massage moves on the mat can be translated to the table, however, body mechanics, angles and positioning often need to be altered in order to produce the intended results. It’s difficult to treat the table exactly the same as the mat because it is not level with the ground. Many of the giving positions in traditional Thai massage revolve around kneeling and using the floor as a counter to the joint movements and pressure. It’s not impossible to translate the work to the massage table. It just takes knowledge of what each technique is supposed to accomplish so that the adaptation for the table gets that same result without compromising client or practitioner safety. Consider signing up for one of our table Thai courses instead of trying to figure it all out yourself!
