LEVEL 1 Schedule – 2021
TABLE THAI Level 2 for both floor and table: 3 days, 21 CE Hours
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.
