Thai massage is a great way to connect to your partner, friend, or family member and anyone can learn this healing therapy. Traditional Thai massage works primarily with the energetic body using manual manipulation combined with acupressure, gentle stretching and muscular kneading. By stimulating the bodies lines of energy or Prana (life force), we can help break up blockages in tissues or organs to stimulate free flow of Prana and help to restore general wellbeing.
During this workshop, your guide Lilli Markle, will demonstrate how to safely give basic thai massage techniques from a meditative place of loving kindness. This fun practice will leave you in a state of blissful flow, connection and warmth. We invite you to stay and enjoy food and drink pairings after your massage.
Thai massage is practiced on a soft surface on the floor. Each person is required to bring a blanket.
All levels, beginner friendly.
