Therapeutic Massage Course
What is Therapeutic Thai Massage?
It is a combination of Acupressure Therapy with Thai massage. This massage is based in Chinese Meridian, a mix of the Acupressure points from Acupuncture and Thai massage.
The massage is focused on specific parts of the body which requires treatment. When it comes to Thai massage the entire body is worked on, unlike that, in the Therapeutic Thai Massage the focus is only on the area related to the disorder or pain.
While the Acupressure focuses on the particular points related to the condition using pressure points which can be done either by giving thump or finger pressure, the use of Thai Massage releases the pain and relaxes the muscle of that area allowing the optimum flow of blood circulation aiding healing.

The Thai word ‘Tok’ means to hammer or to apply with vigor. ‘Sen’ means a rope, a line or a route. In Thai medicine ‘Sen’ also refers to the Channels or Channels of Energy that circulate through the entire Human Body. These energy channels carry the Prana (Vital energy) through the entire body. But if this flow is obstructed due to any energy blockages, it can give rise to a physical, mental or emotional illness or disorder.
