Overview

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!

For those requiring a more gentle approach, there are also some wonderfully relaxing and nuturing techniques. A truly holistic treatment, and very adaptable.

2. Introduction to Thai Sen Lines

There are over 72000 Thai Sen (energy) lines in the body, and this workshop aims to give you a general introduction to them. The aim of this type of treatment is to free the flow of energy in the body and bring everything into balance. A very gentle, relaxing and non-invasive way of working, covering the legs, feet, arms, hands, abdomen, head and face, using gentle acupressure – a joy to give and receive! I have found that clients with conditions that affect the nervous system seem to respond especially well to this treatment, and it is wonderful for elderly or infirm clients who cannot tolerate deeper treatment. Give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised!
