I did the Herbal Compress course with Natasha in April 2017 and it was the perfect introduction to this herbal compresses. Not only did we have fun crushing and mixing all of the herbs, and making our own compresses, but we had enough time to practice using them on each other and take some home for further practice. Natasha puts a lot of time, love and energy into preparing this course by sourcing all of the herbs and materials for us. I would really recommend this two-day course to any Thai Massage practitioners who are looking for an introduction to Herbal Compresses and learning how to incorporate it into their practice.

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.
