Get Started Learning Thai Massage Principles and Techniques
Ariela Grodner, of Bodhi Sangha School of Thai Massage, is beginning a new cycle of Thai Massage with Thai 1: Introduction to Thai Massage, beginning from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., December 1 and 2. Level 1 provides the necessary foundation for future techniques, but also can serve as a standalone practice, as students will learn a complete form.
Students will learn a 90-minute 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 the body dynamic and one’s own weight to distribute the force required for the application of the relevant techniques.
The recipient lies relaxed and loosely clothed while the practitioner guides them through a series of yogic asanas and applies balancing touch to the body’s major energy lines and points.
Cost is $1,350 for all six phases or $250 per weekend. 18 CEU for LMT and acupuncture. Students may begin at any phase and return free to any class they have paid for. Location: Florida School of Massage, 6421 SW 13th St., Gainesville. Register at 813-417-6745 or BodhiSangha.com.
