Ashi-Thai™ is the newest technique to hit the massage scene. It’s hip with a little Zen sprinkled in and the curriculum is the first of its kind ever introduced until now! Ashi-Thai is an expression of traditional Thai stretches/exercises that have been modified to use with bars on the ceiling so no heavy lifting occurs. The sessions are performed fully clothed without any oil or cream.


 

Over the last decade, we have been honored to have many Thai practitioners take our Ashiatsu courses. During those workshops, many expressed their love for delivering the healing art of Thai but complained of wrist and arm pain from years of traditional palm walking with the hands.

They enjoy the benefits their clients receive from the stretches wish they could do it without bending and lifting at the waist or being on their hands and knees. After hearing this for years we got busy, did the research and developed a technique that feels very similar to Thai massage without the use of hand compression at all.

The flowing and rhythmic approach was developed for anybody who prefers the client off the ground, to stretch and loosen the body before or after a massage session. Ashi-Thai will open your mind and heart to knowledge and movement you didn’t know existed; however it will be something you have longed for in your practice.

The Ashi-Thai workshop has been divided into 2 different modules. The posterior module & the anterior module. You won’t believe just how in-depth the course study is. The combinations of techniques have been arranged following traditional energy lines and stretches for elongating and relieving tightness in commonly used muscles groups. A registration packet of details from what to wear, what to bring, directions and lodging can be mailed to you from the instructor. Please click here to find a location and date nearest you.
