Learn Thai Massage Techniques on Weekends
The Bodhi Sangha School of Thai Massage will conduct an 18-hour class, Introduction to Thai Massage—Phase 1, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., July 27 and 28, at the Florida School of Massage. This is the first of six classes that meet once a month for six months. Students may begin at any phase or take the first class as an introduction.
The objective of Thai massage is a perfected self-awareness through the joy of a mutually beneficial healing dance. Level 1 provides the necessary foundation for future techniques to be based upon, but also can serve as a standalone practice.
In the first workshop, students learn an hour-and-a-half long form, practiced on the floor. It enables the therapist the use of elbows, knees, forearms and feet in a comfortable and efficient way that utilizes their body dynamic and weight to distribute the force required for the application of the techniques.
Each weekend offers 18 CEU toward 108-hour Thai Massage certification for LMTs. Cost is $300 a weekend or $250 if taking all six. Location: 6421 SW 13th St., Gainesville. For more information, visit BodhiSangha.com.
