DYNAMIC THAI MASSAGE – Sunshine Massage School – Thailand

Corso di Dynamic Thai Massage con Flora Bisogno a Firenze

This course is held in English, lasts five days, and takes place at the prestigious Sunshine Massage School in Chiang Mai (northern Thailand).
Thai Dynamic is aimed at those who want to bring diversity in touch, rhythm, together with fluidity, creativity and playfulness to the treatment, for those who have completed the Thai Massage level 1 and 2, but also for those who practice different traditions of treatments on the floor and who has some experience.

Dynamic Thai treatment is a creative and therapeutic way of working on the body to restore its mobility and free the nervous system through connection with the water element. The “dynamic modality” of Thai Massage is inspired by the master and therapist Ajahn Chaiyut Priyasith (Northern Thailand) and masterfully reinterpreted and developed in Europe and Asia by David Lutt (France) and Krishnatakis (Greece).

The right combination of gentle shaking, oscillatory and harmonic techniques allow an effective release and balance of the nervous system, drainage of the lymphatic system, stimulation of the circulatory system and restoration of mobility in the musculoskeletal system and in the tissues (layers of band). Furthermore, being a very playful treatment, it stimulates good humor and joy for those who do it and those who receive it.
This type of treatment combines some techniques coming directly from Thai Massage and some from Osteopathy (harmonic techniques, general GOT treatment, rocking and shaking).

      In this course we will go in depth into the philosophy of traditional Thai medicine and the practice of the 10 Sen (Thai Sib Sen or Sen Sip).
      Since “opening” and “keeping” the Sen free is one of the primary objectives of treatments in the Thai healing arts, it is of primary importance for every Thai Massage practitioner to know the theory and practice of Lom Prana (“The Wind of Life”, one of the possible translations) and its practical applications.

      We will study in depth how these invisible “channels” run along the body and distribute vital energy (also called prana, wind, Lom Pran, Chi).
      We will see in detail the trajectories of the 10 Sen, how to locate them, how to manipulate and unlock them with pressure, acupressure, rocking, stretching and other techniques coming from the tradition of Thai Massage and how to apply them to the most common problems such as: foot mobility, plantar fasciitis, treatment deep legs, lower back pain, sciatica, scar treatment, shoulder problems, tennis elbow, pain in the cervical area.

      In this course I will teach with Luca Pompili, who has twenty years of experience in the field of Thai Massage and other body disciplines; member of the Italian Traditional Thai Massage Federation, Luca studied with Mario Milli, Andrea Baglioni and with Thai masters such as Pichet Bonthumme.
      He has also attended numerous courses in Chi Nei Tsang, Bio-fluidic Osteopathy, Osteothai, Dynamic Thai. Today he is also a Bowen therapy operator (Bowtec): School recognized by the Australian Academy.
