Immerse yourself in nature and learn the therapeutic art of Thai Massage at the Yoga Garden. Groups are kept to a maximum of 4 or 5 students to ensure a high level of individual attention and one to one tuition.
This comprehensive course, established in 2015, runs one day per week (Wednesdays).
The course is accredited by the CMA (Complimentary Medical Association) and is recognised by all insurance companies which provide services to complimentary health practices. The student will graduate with a qualification and confidence to practice Thai Massage on anyone.

The course content includes the history and philosophy of Thai Massage, the many techniques and sequences employed in the practice and the theory of Sen lines and how they are worked within the massage sequences.
Practical techniques of this healing art are handed down from teacher to pupil in a way that respects the classical form and embodies Buddhist principles of Metta (loving kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (joy) and Uppekha (freedom).
The course concludes (prior to assessment) with an observed clinic day at The Yoga Garden where the students offer visitors free 25 minute taster Thai Massage sessions throughout the day. This is a unique and wonderful opportunity to work on a variety of different bodies and personalities and a chance to implement all the new skills and knowledge learnt during the course.

Senior Course Tutor
Chessy completed her Thai Massage Training and Teacher Training 20 years ago at ITM school of massage in Chiang Mai, Thailand and furthered her studies with more advanced one to one training with some renowned Thai Massage Masters in Northern Thailand.
She has always been fascinated by the precious balance in the health of body, mind and spirit and although she loves all the therapeutic mediums she works with, she particularly loves the holistic nature of Thai Massage and how it works with the 5 bodies (koshas) : Mental, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual and Energetic, making it a true journey for giver and receiver.
This ancient healing art is passed down from teacher to student and this course really focuses on the importance of developing and trusting in the magic of intuitive touch, so expertly demonstrated in all Eastern healing traditions. Chessy is also a certified yoga teacher, and teaches a weekly therapeutic yoga class at The Yoga Garden, as well as offering Thai Massage therapy to students. If you would like to meet Chessy, or have a treatment with her prior to attending this course, please get in touch.
“Chessy presented the training in a calm, relaxed manner with great patience, adapting to the pace of learning within the group”.
