We cover portions of the Table Thai workbook and show you how to easily incorporate this into your table sessions with ease. This allows the therapist to save their hands, work more deeply and really help clients with aches and pains. We guide you through class and create open space for questions about massage, Thai massage and how we blend this healing art into our table work. Although previous study of Thai Massage is welcomed, it is not required for this class. First-time as well as veteran students are all welcome.
Fri – Sun, May 3-5
Participants will learn fascial anatomy, structural integration theory, and clinical protocols that advance performance, increase flexibility and balance, reduce compensatory patterns, and diminish pain and soreness. Students will learn about classical somatotypes and their performance qualities, including the somatotypes that are prevalent in endurance, power, sprint, and multi-skilled sports. Add lots of great new techniques to your tool bag!

Participants will learn how Massage and Yoga Therapy enable you to assess imbalances within your own body. You will learn more about the cycle of pain and tension that lives within the layers of our whole self, not only the physical body. At its core, self-assessment is the process of knowing and directing the soft tissue and nervous system network through mindfulness. Massage therapist and yoga therapist, Rhianna Sanford, will help each attendee assess and build your individual plan for proper joint function and range of motion, as well as a daily practice for rehabilitating limitations.

Many times therapists focus on the low back muscles, but often it is the ligaments that are the actually injured tissues! The muscles respond to ligamentous sprain by going into protective spasm, called self-splinting. Often therapists treat these spasming muscles, but don’t address the ligaments. It is no surprise then that low back sprain, when the ligaments aren’t addressed, may become chronic and/or recurrent! In this workshop you will learn how to work with these sacro-iliac ligaments.

One of the most important benefits a therapist can provide is very effective work with the neck and with thoracic outlet syndrome. At least one out of four clients will present with symptoms of neuromuscular neck pain. The good news is massage therapy – when the therapist is thoroughly familiar with the anatomy of the anterior and posterior neck as well as techniques for all these muscles – is often the most efficacious response to this pain and tension syndrome.
