Can I work as a massage therapist after taking your course?
Our courses will provide you a solid foundation in Thai massage, summarizing the teachings acquired during years from renowned teachers and schools from Thailand and all over the world; Presented in a modern and easy to understand way, combining massage, body awareness, Buddhism and mindful living. This will enable you to offer up to 2 hours full body treatments to your family, friends or clients.
If you are looking to start a professional career in Thai Massage, you should foresee a learning process of at least 2 years, taking many other courses, ideally some in Thailand, and to give at least 100 treatments to master your touch during that time before start charging for a massage.
We strongly recommend that after a course you continue your practice and offer treatments to people in your community to integrate your practice before taking any other course.
What do you offer in your retreats?
We are offering you retreats where the completed training hours, levels and stamps are not the only reason to join. You will benefit from the experience that EvaSion, her assistants and the other conscious students coming to the retreat create together, and they are unique every single time.
Be aware that ThaiYoga Massage, just as Yoga, is a way of life, that involves spiritual practices and social and communication skills. We need to dive into meditation to improve our levels of awareness in daily life and quiet our mind when giving a treatment. Becoming conscious that we are dealing with other human beings, working from the heart for the wellbeing of people, with a deep respect for the many situations that as a therapist we will be dealing with. Is during the retreats that we learn and experience these aspects.
What is “Noble Silence” ?
*as seen in our retreat program
Noble Silence or mouna is a meditative practice in which we refrain from speaking, interacting with each other, and avoid any intellectual activity such as reading or watching a video.
Silence helps us to focus our attention inwards; the calming silence helps us to see things more clearly, and therefore, to be in deeper contact with ourselves and to find our true needs and struggles. It also calms your general mood and leaves you in a state of concentration and attention to attend the lectures in an optimal condition.
Any practice needs to be done with intelligence. Our practice of silence does not need be oppressive. Although we do not speak, we can still acknowledge the presence of others and act mindfully to each other.
