    Traditional Eastern Abdominal Massage Course

  • When
    17 March 10:30 - 17:30
  • Saturday 3rd March & Saturday 17th March 2017


    This 2 day course is a lovely opportunity to get in touch with the core of ourselves, to explore the belly and how to massage it deeply but safely & gently, with the due respect deserved by one of our most personal and powerful body areas. You will learn touch techniques to perform both on ourselves and on others, through the clothing and also directly on skin using oils or compresses. Suitable for all levels of experience from beginner to professional massage therapist (CPD/certificated course).

    The course is based on the principles of abdominal massage that reach back to ancient Taoist traditions. Focusing on the abdominal organs, it is a deeply relaxing and restoring treatment that can aid digestion, fertility, and reproductive and eliminatory systems, as well as promoting a sense of peace, calm and wellbeing.

    Techniques from Thai massage, Shiatsu and Chi Nei Tsang are incorporated, including myofascial release, acupressure, breathwork, how to select appropriate types of oils, how to make and use a hot compress, and self care techniques. You also learn about digestion, the enteric nervous system, (the intelligence of the belly), and how our organs respond to emotions and stress.

    This course is a stand alone training, and also a module on the Traditional Thai Therapies Certificate Course.

    Cost: £155 per person or only £140 each for two booking together.
