One-Day Seated Thai Massage Diploma

The main aim of Seated Thai massage is to re-balance the flow of energy in the body using the system of 'Sen' energy lines.  These are similar to the meridian energy lines of Chinese medicine but follow the natural contours of the body. 

Unlike the techniques used in Western massage, the Thai method uses a rhythmic movement to apply pressure to energy lines and points, together with muscle stretching and compression. Although it is known as massage, it has more in common with Japanese Shiatsu or Chinese acupressure systems.

The benefits of Seated Thai massage include: freeing of energy blockages; facilitating relaxation; a feeling of wellbeing and increase of flexibility in joints.  It is especially good for releasing stress and tension, and encouraging relaxation of both mind and body. 

The routine you will learn involves manipulation using stretching techniques and gentle pressure along the SEN or energy lines of the body and can easily be adapted for corporate work.
