This ancient healing art originated in India, and was preserved over the millennia in Buddhist temples. It was used as part of the meditation preparation. The original sources of Thailand Traditional Massage were lost, but the oral tradition survived, and then declined after the introduction of western medicine. Recently Thailand massage has re-emerged as a healing art form with the increased interest from Thai's and westerners. 

Here you will learn the ancient Pali meditation, chakra energy system, integrative exercises, relevant oriental meridian systems, relationships to anatomy and physiology, correct body mechanics, and the gentle rocking unique to this massage form, the northern or Chiang Mai style. 

Explanations are based on the teacher's broad background, as a national (USA) certified acupuncturist and massage therapist, and international certified Thai therapist instructor. 


Note: Maxine will bring custom-designed workshops for your groups.
