TRADITIONAL THAI MASSAGE (60 hrs) Wed & Thurs, Jan 17, 18, 24, 25, 31 & Feb 1, 7 & 8 (9 am - 5:30 pm). Traditional Thai massage is an ancient system of massage and dynamic stretching developed in Thailand, influenced by traditional medicine systems of India, China, and Southeast Asia. Practiced comfortably on a floor mat in loose fitting clothing, Traditional Thai Massage blends static and rhythmic pressure and yoga-like stretching to deeply open, relax and revitalize the entire body. The class will be taught in the Northern Style, noted for its slow, graceful and meditative qualities. The class covers over 160 techniques in four positions (supine, prone, side-lying, and seated), as taught at the internationally recognized Loi Kroh Traditional Thai Massage School in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Detailed attention will be given to proper body alignment, ease of movement, focus, and awareness, so that the experience of the practitioner can be as healing as the experience of the client.

THAI FOOT REFLEXOLOGY (18 hrs) Mon, Tues, Wed, Feb 12, 13 & 14 (9 am - 4 pm). Students will learn a complete foot reflexology sequence combining traditional Thai and traditional Chinese theory and techniques. Foot reflexology maps the body's structure and organs to specific points or "zones" on the feet. When reflexology came to Thailand, Thai practitioners modified the practice and added more techniques for relaxation, while following the original Chinese theory. As a blended practice, Thai Foot Reflexology provides a balance of intense sensations and relaxation. Most of the material learned in the class can also be selectively used/incorporated into other massage formats. Students should have reasonably healthy feet free of significant infection or disease. Students should wear comfortable, loose-fitting pants that can be pulled/rolled up to above the knee, and bring a sheet & pillow with a case each day. Prerequisite: None.
