You’ve heard about Thai yoga massage or experienced it for yourself. And now you’re itching to take your first steps in training as a practitioner.

You’re about to start on a very exciting new path, my friend.

And I can’t wait to be your guide.

READY TO BECOME OBSESSED WITH THAI BODYWORK?

Because I’ve got to warn you – it WILL happen.

Whether you’re new to bodywork or a current practitioner, what you’re about to learn with me will blow your mind.

Because Thai yoga massage turns Western manual therapy on its head.

This ancient practice is the antidote to the hard work treatments that hurt our bodies and bring mediocre results to our clients.

In Thai bodywork, we respectfully and slowly sink down through each layer of the body – as and when our clients are ready.

Thai bodywork training

Thai yoga massage goes deep without going hard.

What you’ll learn

In this foundational course you’ll:

Learn simple and juicy massage techniques to deliver exquisitely deep healing.

Practise beating, compressions, stretching, rolling, squeezing, thumbing, rubbing and range of motion.

Use elbows, palms, thumbs, feet, knees and forearms to give deep treatments that don’t hurt your own body.

Understand the true history of Thai massage and its Buddhist medicine roots.

Get a grounding in Thai medical theory and anatomy, history and lineage, ethics, and Sen/channel theory.

Learn about Buddhist Element Theory and understand how to work with the five elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Wind, Space (and consciousness).

Train in spiritual practices and Reusi Dat Ton (Thai yoga/self care).

How the combination of effective stretches and deep tissue Thai massage techniques affect muscle, fascia, Sen and bone to open, release and effectively work the body on a structural level.

Learn when to use each technique for the most effective results.

Learn from Natasha’s extensive dissection knowledge and start to understand how the human body REALLY works.

HI, I’M NATASHA

I’ve been practising Thai yoga massage for 30 years and teaching incredible practitioners like you since 2005.

I’m a dissection and anatomy geek and love bringing my in-depth knowledge of the inner workings of the human body to my training.

I’m also a purist. The Thai yoga massage you learn with me is true therapeutic bodywork, learned in Thailand and based on traditional Buddhist medicine. You won’t find this level of training anywhere else in the UK.

I WANT YOU TO BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE

As a student of mine you have the opportunity to have 1:1 support with me over a 3 month period. I will coach and mentor you and together we will look at all the areas which are keeping you stuck and preventing you from having the life and business that you desire.

In these sessions we look at the wheel of your life and each week I coach you to move towards yours goals, dreams and highest vision.

Having taken the first module and the herbal compress course with Natasha, I can say what a very precious and beautiful space she creates for her students. I am taking the next module this year, and she has also invited me to attend the first module again [as an intern]. Natasha cares deeply about the practice and for her students, and I could not ask more of her course. Really looking forward to it!
