Just 1 - 2 spots left in this semi-private small class of 2-4 students, over 7 days, earning 42 THAI and NCBTMB CES, as you deepen your understanding of the 10 major Sen lines used in Thai Massage. You will learn the medical perspective underlying the bodywork movements, new one-hour treatment routines addressing each Sen, new stretches, and real life therapeutic applications to tailor your sessions to specific client needs. This intensive class will dissolve the confusion around sen lines and help you compare them to other disciplines, such as meridians, nadis, and fascial planes. As in all of Rose’s classes, this material is taught with a multi-discipline approach to help you really ‘get’ what the sen are about, in a relaxed casual setting that fosters individual learning. Expect a deep shift in your practice.

Apply the warm compress during a simple massage. This is a fun popular class, so reserve your spot early.

$150 Early Bird Discount until Oct 18, $175 after. Class rescheduled to Friday Nov 2nd.

Register with Body in Mind Massage Institute in Toms's River, central NJ, 732-608-7781, Body in Mind

WHAT TO EXPECT:
Everyone loves the warmth and aroma of the herbs this time of year! The herb knowledge you'll gain can be applied for your personal use, for family health treatments, in cooking and home herbal remedies, and as a wonderful compliment for massage.

With massage, the herb packs add a unique, therapeutic, relaxing component to your work. The warm herbal compresses induce deep states of relaxation and enhance the therapeutic benefits of any massage. For your home, it gives you complementary tools for health.

The focus on this workshop is having fun while we explore the medicinal qualities of traditional herbs used in compresses as they are made and used in Thailand. Most of the day will involve learning about a variety of dried and fresh herbs as we make up our own compresses. We'll then steam the packs, and toward the end of day, use them on a simple massage, either thai style or western style, on a floor mat or a massage table. The herbs are easy to incorporate into a table massage, especially if you have a hot towel cabinet or small steamer nearby. If you aren't interested in doing the massage portion, don't worry, you can just receive instead, or observe!

WHAT TO BRING:
-for the massage portion, we will work OVER CLOTHING on a massage table (provided) or floor mat (bring one), so please wear (or bring to change into) loose, comfortable, modest clothing that allows freedom of movement;
-sometimes the fresh herb packs leave a light yellowish stain, so bring clothing you don't mind if this happens;
-bring linens, a sheet & pillow - remember it might get slightly stained;
-bring water and a snack for break time, or food to purchase is close by;
-if you grow your own herbs or have access to fresh or dried herbs, please bring some to share! Any medicinal herbs (or flowers) are welcome, although we will focus on traditional herbs from Thailand, such as ginger, eucalyptus, turmeric, lime, lemongrass, cinnamon, camphor, rose, orchid, along with rosemary, thyme, sage, basil, mint, chamomile, laurel and more.

Qigong for Self-Care
Sep

8:30 AM08:30

Qigong for Self-Care

Qigong (also written as Chi Kung) is an ancient  system of body and mind health originating in China centuries ago.  It is similar and related to Tai Chi.

Based on the same principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine used in acupressure or shiatsu or tuina, these self-care techniques establish proper body mechanics to use during massage, as well as provide proven tools for taking care of your physical body, as well as your heart-mind.

Reinforce good posture, diaphragmatic breathing, relaxation and focusing your attention, while doing gentle fluid movements that are easy and enjoyable. ANYONE can practice qigong, you do not need to be flexible or athletic (though if you are, qigong will enhance your health in unexpected ways).

We will review the philosophy underlying TCM as it relates to qigong, and practice throughout the day with seated, standing, and walking qigong movements. You will learn classic techniques to settle, cleanse, circulate, and build your qi (or chi) so that you are more grounded and centered and relaxed and energized

Excellent for massage therapists or other bodyworkers, or anyone wanting to focus on learning qigong for overall self-care..

Work skillfully with your natural energy to enhance your overall vitality! As Dr. Mehmet Oz said to Oprah Winfrey, "If you want to live to be 100, practice Qigong."  

Wednesday, Sept 19, 2018, in Ocean City, NJ, 8:30am-5pm, 7 NCBTMB CEs, $150pp, on sale for $125 until Sept 1st.

‘A Journey into Tai Chi & Qi Gong’, watch this video to learn the benefits and history of these ancient healing techniques.

Thai Massage Jam/Gathering

The 4-day attendance is currently FULL, but you can attend for SINGLE DAYS at the link below. 

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, Pamela Herrick, Gregory Oed, Al Turner II, Rose J. Griscom), along with some special guests (including Sudevi Kramer, Phillip Behrns, and Paul Fowler).

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 the history of Thai Medicine, as well as 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 do something different this year (instead of her expert help in business-building tools) to guide us into learning hands-on ways 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 from NYC to share his extensive knowledge and skill in the practical application of thai massage. And Gregory Oed will again lead us in daily reusi dat ton (the thai hermit's yoga) exercises that are directly linked to and will strengthen your thai massage practice.

Sudevi Kramer joins us from the Vedic Conservatory this year to share with you this yoga and ayuervedic inspired style of thai massage, giving you a fresh perspective to use in your practice. Phillip Behrns from VA brings his knowledge of Royal Thai Massage techniques as well as exploring Tok Sen (haven't heard of that yet? You will!). Paul Fowler from Blue Lotus Thai Healing in Chicago, recently back from his latest sojourn to Thailand, will join us and share some practical hands-on techniques.  

-All 4 days are $450 regular price, or $750 for two if you BRING A FRIEND and register together by Feb 15th. You can also attend single days for $150. 

-at the NJ shore in Ocean City, just south of Atlantic City

-interactive lectures on thai medicine and history and healing practices, daily Wai Khru and Reusi Dat Ton, lots of practical bodywork, sharing meals and hanging on the boardwalk together, so that you may come away more deeply connected to each other and your thai massage practice.
