The treatment of the spine is one of the most important aspects in a Thai massage treatment. The spine is our pillar. It is the central axis of both heaven and earth. Therefore we address this Yin/Yang polarity with both DYNAMIC and STATIC massage techniques. We live through this perpetual Yin and Yang manifestation. Life is movement and rhythm and is one of the fundamental principles of Life. It allows evolution! It is this cyclical change in-between rest and movement that generates forces. And in the same way, the non- respect of our inner rhythms leads us to a disease state.
Along our spine we not only have the fluids of our central nervous system but we also have energetic centres which relate to emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of our life. These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Since everything is moving, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow. We will address each chakra with the aim of bringing back balance and ease into our being. Since mind, body, soul, and spirit are intimately connected, awareness of an imbalance in one area will help bring the others back into balance.
This course will be understanding the patterns of in-breath, out-breath, giving and receiving, dynamic and static movement for more fluidity and precision in our work.
Dynamic Flow … In this course we will learn how to go with the flow and move between movement and stillness…and at the same time have freedom in our movement. Having already the basic techniques and principles of Thai Massage, we will go deeper in our understanding of the flow … the Sacred Dance. How we can adjust, move and dance with another body, without getting “stuck” in positions, keeping precision in both line work and acupressure points. We will explore more acupressure points and learn how to use more the elbow, knee and foot. We will also learn how to then come to a stillpoint and listen deeply to what the body is telling us we need to do. We will learn focus and precision in the static part of the massage so that together they may complement each other as the polarities of Yin and Yang do.
