Thai Massage Jam/Gathering

Special Event! We are excited to again offer this yearly gathering to the growing NJ/PA/mid-Atlantic/east coast thai massage and medicine community.

With new topics, new (as well as familiar) presenters, and a focus on practical hands-on techniques, you are sure to walk away refreshed and renewed with specific skills you can use with your clients. Mark the dates, reserve your spot, and join us.

Join five wonderful teachers (Pierce Salguero, Sudevi Linda Kramer, Gregory Oed, Al Turner II, Rose J. Griscom)., along with some surprise guests.

This year will be a focus on some of the esoteric aspects of Traditional Thai Medicine that previous participants have asked about. Pierce's presentations on Buddhist Healing will help us understand Thai healing magic, rituals of protection, spirit invocation, exorcism, magic charms, amulets, and other aspects of Thai healing culture. An additional topic of discussion includes “wai khru” ceremonies, altars, and other sacred spaces. We will delve into how to practice these aspects of Thai healing, with emphasis on “culturally translating” Thai traditions to fit with participants’ own teaching and practice goals.

Pamela will guide us into learning to experience the sen as an expression of spirit. By developing our senses beyond traditional palpation, we will find answers to our unanswered questions about the sen. And gain a more complex understanding of clients’ presenting conditions and deepen the therapeutic impact of our work. All in a lighthearted, experimental and playful learning environment. No dogma. Just practice.

Al Turner returns to share his extensive knowledge and skill in the practical application of thai massage. Sudevi Kramer joins us this year to share with you her Vedic Conservancy inspired style of thai massage, giving you a fresh perspective to use in your practice. And Gregory Oed will lead us in daily reusi dat ton exercises that are directly linked to and will strengthen your thai massage practice.
