Thai Massage: Using Our Feet

Thai Massage // Using Our Feet // Level One
with Nina Lombardo

18 CEUs for Florida Licensed Massage Therapists

In this two-day workshop we will be cultivating our ability to use our feet within a Thai Massage session. The techniques we will be developing will focus on gaining more control and awareness of our feet so we can comfortably use them as therapeutic Thai massage tools in place of, or in addition to, our hands. By the end of the workshop we will have the tools to give an entire session with just our feet.

There are innumerable benefits to using our feet within a Thai Massage session:
• Give deeper pressure to your clients without compromising your hands and wrists
• Conserve your energy
• Feel relaxed while still working efficiently and effectively
• Maintain healthy posture and body mechanics as you work
• Give longer and deeper holds
• Deepen your body awareness
• Improve your balance
• Have fun and get CREATIVE!

Through the process of bringing more awareness to our feet and channeling our energies downward, we may notice a deep sense of GROUNDING occurring within our bodies. This is by far my favorite benefit of this work - not only does it feel grounding and relaxing for the client, but it feels grounding for the practitioner as well.

This is the first class of a two-part series. We will mostly be working in the prone and supine positions. Level two will integrate more sideline techniques and advanced postures.


Cost of workshop: $200

I am so excited to finally be offering this workshop. After exploring and playing with new foot techniques for the past two years, and studying advanced foot work in Chiang Mai with Ralf Marzen, I have put together this sequence in hopes of expanding our community's Thai Massage vocabulary. Please join us as we delve deeper into these new Thai Massage skills and tecnniques!
