Get re-invigorated and inspired with this Thai Massage workshop designed especially for massage therapists!
This two-day Thai for the Table class is a boon for LMT’s who are looking to incorporate Thai style stretching into their current routines. Bringing Thai stretching, movement and compression onto the table offers table-workers a host of fresh new tools to bring back to their massage practice. Paul will guide you through this fascinating connection of two modalities. Massage will be taught fully clothed.

Please watch the video below for more information on Blue Lotus and their Thai Massage program:
Paul Fowler, director of Blue Lotus Thai Healing Studies, will lead you through a high-spirited adventure into the world of Thai-style therapeutic touch. Paul first went to Thailand to study Thai massage in 1999 and has been back over a dozen times since then. He co-founded Blue Lotus in 2007. Blue Lotus is known throughout the world for its unique and thorough 200 hour traditional Thai massage training program. Paul also leads students on a yearly three week learning trip to Thailand to meet with traditional doctors and other masters of Thai medical massage.
Notes to Students:
Clothing: Please wear comfortable clothing or yoga type clothing. We will be working fully clothed and we will be stretched and moved around. So keep that in mind when choosing what to wear. I recommend against shorts or sleeveless t-shirts. In the Thai practice it’s best to work on some sort of material as opposed to directly on skin (though you can wear a t-shirt with sleeves exposing your arms, or a long sleeve t-shirt or sweatshirt covering your arms, up to you). If you get cold while receiving, keep that in mind also as you decide what to wear.
Tables: They will be provided by the studio.
Manual: You will receive a manual for the class that you can use to practice with when you are on your own. The class itself will riff off of the manual but will also allow for things to come up in the moment. I am most interested in technique, sensing, deep connection, meditative awareness, and fundamental principles of touch and movement. These are the ideas that will guide us as we explore this unique way of interacting in the space of the therapeutic massage.
Photos and Video: You are welcome to take pictures and videotape any of the demonstrations. However, I ask that you only use videos for personal study purposes only. If you wish to post some pictures from the class on social media you are welcome to, provided all participants give their consent. It’s something we will talk about early on on Monday.
If you have any particular requests or suggestions, please let me know in advance if you can and I’ll do my best to weave your interests into the class.
I look forward to meeting you and spending a few days together in this fun and challenging process of learning new ideas and skills. I hope you come with an open, curious mind and a willingness to take some chances and try something new. If you do, you will no doubt catch my excitement about the subject and have more opportunity dive into some of the deeper levels of practice.
