Feb. 3, 2010 – There’s no denying the benefits of eastern massage traditions. Shiatsu and Thai Massage, among other modalities, are steeped in hundreds of years of tradition, philosophy, and sound healing principles. For the average western massage therapist though, making the leap to fully using these highly healing techniques can be intimidating and sometimes prohibitively costly.
However, integrating Thai Massage into an existing table massage practice makes accessible the variety and treatment menu options that clients are looking for and that massage therapists crave.
See for yourself how Thai for the Table is taught and join the Nayada Institute of Massage as they present Thai for the Table at the Ontario College of Health & Technology in February and March.

Thai for the Table: Course Overview Video
Range of motion stretching and deep tissue work are the hallmarks of Thai Massage, with the added benefit of deep relaxation for the client which is triggered by rhythmic rocking motions–engaging the parasympathetic nervous system. No oils are necessary, and the client can remain fully clothed—or simply combine Thai sequences with your other modalities for complete balance.
The longevity of your career is directly related to your well being, and adding Thai Massage for the Table is another way to support your body by using techniques that do not stress your thumbs, wrists, low back, and shoulders.
