FHT Annual Training Congress @ NEC, Birmingham

Clients include Raffles of Singapore and The Regent Chiang Mai Thailand and India. Dinah also works with VTCT to develop new qualifications and offers training to therapists and lecturers across the UK.
In this workshop, you will learn the history and culture behind this rhythmic Eastern therapy, with a practical floor-based introduction to using Thai massage techniques.
Thai massage is an effective and therapeutic therapy traditionally done on the floor. The therapist works in a slow rhythmic dance-like pace, resembling bamboo in the wind or a rocking swaying motion. Each movement places the client in yoga correlation positions, releasing pressure on joints and allowing the muscles to naturally stretch. For the client, a ‘release’ and state of relaxation occurs. For the therapist, appreciation from the Thai Buddha allows for inner peace and healing to occur. The Thai people are humble, non-confrontational and work this way in all aspects of their life, so a traditional Thai massage follows the same principles. Knowledge of the Thai people is important to respect the quality techniques needed to offer such treatments. An East meets West approach.
