Robert’s Table Thai is a complete, whole-body Thai Massage treatment done on a table. 
The style is less forceful, safer, more efficient, and equally effective as the typical Thai yoga on the floor.

THAI BODYWORK Level 2 for both floor and table: 3 days, 21 CE Hours
see schedule below

*NOTE: Level 1 is prerequisite *

Level 2 focuses
on identifying and using the movements and “sen” (energy meridians) to treat
specific areas, especially knees, hips, low back, abdomen, and shoulders. Using
the same outline for a whole–body treatment used in Level 1, we look at the
uses of each movement and “sen” and insert more movements into the outline to
better treat certain areas and conditions. Adaptations for special conditions
such as hip replacements are shown. Attention is given to improving the practitioner’s
body mechanics, rhythmic flow, and work with the energy system. Both floor and
table versions are shown so one can choose which version to practice. Adaptations
to a chair are also included.  

INSTRUCTOR

Robert Wootton, Ph.D., LMBT

Robert has practiced Thai Massage for 30 years and taught workshops for 20.  He lived and worked and studied in the monasteries in Thailand for six years. He speaks Thai and knows the culture and religion. He was one of the first Americans to train with Thai masters of Nuat Boran, studying two major styles: the so-called “northern style” of Chiang Mai and another style called Jap Sen in Thai.

In his 30 years of experience with clients of all ages and conditions he has developed a style that is less forceful and safer for the general public. Bringing out the dance and meditative qualities of Thai he makes it more efficient, deeply effective, and nurturing.  (See Robert’s article “Principles of Thai Bodywork”).
