About This Course

The application of Thai massage is rhythmic and meditative and your clients may feel both relaxed and rejuvenated!  Thai massage is applied fully clothed on a mat. In this course, you will learn to apply Thai massage techniques in the supine, prone, and seated positions. Thai Massage helps you to:
