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).

GENERAL PROGRAM
  • Specificity, common elements and differences between traditional Thai Massage and Dynamic
  • Rhythm, stillness, precision: resources for an effective and creative treatment

    THAI MASSAGE LEVEL 3 “Nuad Thai e Sen Sib”

    Corso di formazione di Thai Massage con Flora Bisogno a Firenze

    This module is suitable for those who have completed Level 1 and 2 of the basic Thai Massage course, including with other schools and teachers (after interview), and have had a practice for at least a year.

    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.

    GENERAL PROGRAM
    • Theory and philosophy of the Sen and Lom Prana
    • Elements of traditional Thai medicine
    • Development of sensitivity and intuition in identifying invisible “channels”.
    • How to deal with the Sen: Focus on the most common problems
    • Acquisition of techniques and sequences aimed at specific needs
    • Practice on the most common symptoms

      THAI YOGA MASSAGE RETREAT
      Rhythm and Stillness
      21-25 August 2024
      Borgo San Lorenzo (Florence)

      1024 1024 Flora

      Rhythm & Stillness
      THAI MASSAGE RETREAT: a journey toward the heart

      Five days of retreat and work on/with the body in which we practice: multiple levels of touch exploring Traditional Thai Massage (Nuad), Dynamic Thai Massage and Osteothai; the personal practice of conscious movement, meditation; the spirit of welcome and community (sangha).

      FOCUS ON THE HEART
      In this third edition we will focus on the Heart: the master/fulcrum of the organs.
      The heart and its arterial network are the central system for the rhythmic movement of life through the myocardium and all the systems connected to it: it is a master-clock generator of systemic coherence; defined as the fulcrum of fulcrums as its vital function is that of integration. Far from being a mere pump and system of pipes, ancient traditions and scientific research have shown that the heart can influence the entire body in various ways. The heart is, in fact, a highly complex, self-organized information processing center with its own functional “brain” that communicates with and influences the cranial brain via the nervous system, hormonal system and other pathways. These influences profoundly affect brain function and most of the body’s major organs, and ultimately determine the quality of life.

      THAI MASSAGE & OSTEOTHAI: THE CHANGE OF RHYTHMS
      Being able to adapt and change the rhythm of your treatment to the different needs of the receiver brings greater therapeuIc effecIveness, creaIvity, fluidity as well as playfulness and intuiIon in the practice.

      MULTIPLES LEVELS OF TOUCH
      This is what is needed to learn to communicate with the different layers and issues of the body. We learn different types of touch to support the system at every level: musculoskeletal, fascial, fluidic, energetic, craniosacral, etc.

      LIFE IS RHYTHM
      Rhythm is one of the fundamental principles of life. Rhythm allows adaptation, transformation and evolution.
      To respect and acknowledge the rhythms that regulate biological, physical and natural life allows us to find a beneficial balance that will always be made up of alternating phases of movement and stillness.

      THE STILLNESS
      Stop, calm down, rest… as the great masters of Buddhism teach us, it is only in the practice of stillness (calm abiding) that the preliminary conditions for individual and collective healing are found.
      In bodily practices it is in the moment of stillness that the “system” integrates and adjusts, rediscovering homeostasis and self-regulation.

      THE JOURNEY TOWARDS THE HEART IS A JOURNEY TOWARDS HOME: FOR WHOM IS THIS RETREAT
      This retreat is an invitation to you to come back home, in the center of your heart. We wish the parIcipation for those who work with body-mind -spirit system, who have minimal or advanced experience in Thai Massage, Shiatsu or Yoga practice, fisio, osteopaths and anyone who wants to implement their own practice with different and useful perspectives, anyone who want to learn how to take care with love and kindness through the “art of touch”. We also welcome dancers, artist or those who work with expression, all those who wish to find new inspiration for their vocation.

      FACILITATORS
      You will be guided by two teachers, Flora (Italy) and Pasi (Finland), both Master Osteothai with decades of experience in teaching Thai Massage, Yoga and meditation. You will be able to appreciate their differences, geographical origins and cultural specificities, their kind and funny way to teach.

                THAI YOGA MASSAGE RETREAT, RYHTHM & STILLNESS: MEDITATION IN MOVEMENT

                Ritiro di Thai Massage: meditation in movement con Flora Bisogno

                Five days of retreat and work on/with the body in which we practice multiple levels of touch exploring traditional Thai Massage, Dynamic and Osteothai, our own practice of mindful movement, meditation, the spirit of welcome and community (sangha). You will be guided with care and attention by Flora (Italy) and Chiharu (Japan), both Master Osteothai: let yourself be inspired by their related skills and cultural specificities.

                Life is rhythm Rhythm
                Rhythm is made of movement and pauses, breakthrough and silence. In our lives we are always in a hurry and while running we tend to forget to anchor ourselves in our still center.

                Healing like Creativity arise from our inner silence.
                During the retreat you will be guided into the depths of the art of touch. Immersed in nature, we will be able to recall our silent, creative and healing inner space.
                In this retreat we invite all those who have minimum experience of Thai Massage, Shiatsu or Yoga practice, anyone who wants to implement the practice with different and useful perspectives.
                We also gladly welcome dancers or those who work with body expression, all those who wish to find new inspiration for their vocation.
                While practicing the principles and technique that we will share, one step at a time, we will “touch” our deepest being and we will learn to extend this same experience to others and to everything around us.

                Chiharu was first introduced to Yoga in 2001. Since then her interest and advanced studies have extended from ancient Thai healing massage to Vipassana meditation, Buddhism, Ayurveda and Osteothai. Strongly inspired by David Lutt, Chiharu integrates Western bodywork methodology with Eastern spirituality and medicinal systems. In 2022 she was certified as a Master Osteothai (MOT). Today she is one of the most active leaders in the Thai massage community in Japan, and specializes in a psychosomatic approach. In this retreat, she will introduce an approach according to the ancient Japanese view that considers the body as an integrated whole, as well as other views on the essence of body and mind.
