In this workshop we will mainly explore the side and prone positions of the receiver, learning a new sequence that can be used in combination with a previous one or by itself.
We will also add some work especially on the legs in supine position.
Exploring Thai Massage is like taking a trip, there is so much to discover!
This particular style, Lek Chaya’s style is known as “Nerve Touch”. We work on the tendons but not just on the tendons. It’s a great tool, a beautiful experience, an efficient approach to the human body and soul.
LEK CHAYA’S TRADITION – "Nerve Touch style"
Thai Massage is a rich and diverse traditional healing art:
I was blessed with the opportunity to study in Thailand many times between 1992 and 2019. Among the traditional masters, I studied with an elderly woman therapist, Lek Chaya, and the teachers who worked with her. What I learned from them is a fabulous tool, very complete, efficient and fun to give and receive.
In this style, we stimulate the “nerves” or tendons, both through stretches and fingers, palms or thumbs pressure or “guitar cord” playing.
For any type of conditions, from sports injuries to general well-being.
This workshop is directed as much to yoga practitioners, massage therapists and thai massage practitioners who want to expand their knowledge and diversify their tools as to beginners for whom it will be a first step.
Please wear comfortable clothes, bring snacks and a water bottle to keep your energy balanced.
There is tea available in our kitchen upstairs and if you want to bring lunch you can store it in the fridge as well. You can either stay at the studio to have lunch, get take-out or go somewhere in the lunch break.
