Table Thai Yoga Massage

Description: Table Thai Yoga Massage brings the incredible benefits of Thai Yoga Massage to the comfort of a massage table. This type of massage allows you to reach out to a mainstream audience and clients with restrictions to receiving a Thai Massage on a mat; including athletes, elderly and people who prefer massage on a table. Table Thai Yoga Massage moves deeper into the mechanical functions of the body working with deep muscle tension. Muscles are massaged while relaxed and during passive stretching. In this workshop students will learn a full 90 minute sequence that incorporates all the essential practices of Table Thai Yoga Massage.

Professional Ethics for Massage Therapists

Ethics

Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals Code of Ethics will be a framework for students to use while exploring many aspects of being a professional massage therapist including self-care.
