In this dynamic and practical one-day certificated course, we’ll give you an insight into Thai medicine and culture, as well as a thorough practical training into the safe and effective treatment of Thai herb compress massage.
Herbs are not only an essential part of Thai medicine but also an every day part of Thai life, and are used in traditional Thai healing for their energising and balancing effects on the body.
The treatments are based not only on herbal tradition, but also incorporate the central pillar of Oriental medicine, the SEN lines. For the ancients, these lines formed a map of what we now know as the nervous system and can be treated directly using the traditional herb balls, which are first heated in steamers. The herb balls, which are made in Thailand, are filled with a fantastic array of aromatic herbs for a variety of therapeutic purposes. These can help with ailments such as, stiff, sore or pulled muscles and ligaments, back pain, arthritis, chronic pain or injury, digestive dysfunction, migraines, and chronic stress or anxiety.
