“We need touch, but most importantly we need conscious touch”
Thai massage is an incredibly dynamic practice that becomes more than just something you “do” – it weaves its way into your life, evolving into a way of living. It’s roots in Vedic philosophy encourage self-reflection and greater self-awareness in terms of physically taking care of ourselves, but also with respect to our individual energetic constitution and how that impacts the decisions and tendencies we see throughout our lives.
By moving ourselves to facilitate wellness in others, we affect our own bodies in a positive way – creating a situation that is not solely about giving, but receiving as well. Navina™ Thai Yoga Therapy is unique in the world of bodywork as there is a major focus on working towards ease and efficiency of body mechanics. This ultimately enhances both the client and the practitioner experience.
This practice doesn’t only have to be about starting a new career or even earning an income: many people take Thai massage training in order to help family members and friends with chronic pain or movement restrictions or add new elements to existing practices.
For current bodywork practitioners, energy workers, and yoga instructors, learning this skill contributes to an entirely new way of working by changing the perspective from giving to one of more mutual benefit. You may decide to offer Thai massage as an entirely new service, where other times you may take principles of this ancient wisdom and apply it to your existing practice and treatments. Registered Massage Therapists in particular have often found that merely incorporating the theories of our practice into their method of touch has had profound benefits to their quality of practice and to the reduction in overuse injury.
Physical therapists, personal trainers and fitness professionals have been incorporating elements of Thai Yoga Therapy into their personalized client sessions, whether for injury recovery, flexibility training, or just to stretch out clients after a tough workout, Navina™ Thai Yoga Therapy is extremely versatile in its application.
Whatever your needs or intentions for learning this skill, there is something for everyone. In a touch-deprived society, simply feeling confident and comfortable enough to give compassionate touch to others is a hugely powerful gift.
