Dynamic Thai Massage course with Krishnataki at LAKE CHATUNGA, NORTH CAROLINA

23rd – 30th September 2024

In this course we will look at how Thai Massage can be applied to not only enhance overall well-being but also to treat specific chronic pain and discomfort.  We will combine the different modalities using Thai Massage, Chinese Medicine and Osteopathy principles to address the unique structures, organs and systems of the body. Giving special attention to lower back pain, immune system, shoulder & neck pain, the abdomen, and general pain of the joints, muscles and especially troublemakers (groups of muscles that cause pain and inflammation in the body).

Utilizing various qualities of touch and elemental touch qualities of earth (deep and static), water (fluid and flow), fire (dynamic and movement), air (light and etheric). When combining these different approaches of touch to the body, we can open the pathways to receive more balance on energetic, physical and emotional levels.

This course will offer something sacred and unique, bringing us all together to create a community (unity of purpose) of spiritual seekers as we explore touch but also as we mediate, sing, move our bodies and pray together.
