Thai Massage on the Table
64 Florida and NCBTMB Continuing Education Hours
NCBTMB Provider # 450670-08; Florida State CE Provider # 50-9043; Louisiana State CE Provider # LAP0155
Thai Massage can easily be adapted to the table in all four traditional positions. We devote two days to each position to provide sufficient time to explore and practice the possibilities:
- Front Position - 16 CE hours
- Back Position - 16 CE hours
- Sitting Position - 16 CE hours
- Side-Lying Position - 16 CE hours
In these exciting passive yoga stretch workshops, students will learn how to affect the whole person in practical Thai Massage sessions performed on the massage table. Clients can be fully/partially clothed and no oil, lotion or gel is needed.
This invigorating and yet relaxing Thai table massage will suit your active, healthy clients who have highly physical or stressful lifestyles. This type of bodywork is an increasingly popular and requested modality for the work place, corporate and/or industrial settings, health/yoga retreats, health spas, gyms, sports events, and clinical settings. It also complements and can be used in conjunction with a variety of other bodywork modalities.
Participants will learn how to integrate Thai massage into their existing practice and how smoothly elements of a typical Traditional Thai Massage session can be performed on the massage table with dynamic flowing movements, joint manipulation, rhythmic stretching. Smooth transitions will have you gracefully moving from beside the table to on top of the table to make the most of gravity.
Upon completion of the class, you will be prepared to give 60 to 90 minute Thai on the Table general restorative sessions or treatments specifically targeted to one of five common chronic pain conditions.
Participants will get:
- Step-by-step instruction of Thai Massage sequences which can readily be incorporated into table or floor treatments.
- A full-color illustrated workbook
- Practical Thai routines which can be used immediately after class
- Classes consist primarily of hands-on demonstrations and hands-on practice.
- Sen Energy work and basic information about acupressure/Marma points and how to work with them. There will be some mention of meridian/sen energy lines and the areas of the body they correspond to, but most of the class will concentrate on the hands-on Thai routine itself.
Thai Massage on the Table works well for clients who do not feel comfortable on the Thai mat on the floor or in situations where a table is available but a mat is not. Safer proper stretching techniques and body mechanics taught in this class means less work for the therapist, less effort and less risk of back, knees, wrists and thumbs injury, benefiting both the therapist and the client.
These Thai massage on the table classes are appropriate for:
- Massage therapists/Bodyworkers/Personal Trainers who have already taken a Thai massage course on the mat but want to learn to adapt these techniques to the table
- Those interesting in exploring Thai massage but unsure if they want to commit to the full certification program
- Great complement to any spa menu of services. See our Thai Massage Spa Staff training program.
- Also a great complement to the Thai Hot Herbal Compress Massage and Thai Sports Massage when applying both modalities in the same session.
Congratulations to our last Thai on the Table Class at Daytona State College!

Thai massage is much more than massage...
"From the point of view of spiritual practice, there is a very deep connection between the outer world and the inner world. If we look at the essential nature of both of these in their uncontrived state, we can see that the essential nature of mind and the essential nature of the world is the same. These two are of the nature of equality. And when we realize and understand that, it's like pouring water into water." -- His Holiness 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, 'Bodhisattva'
“Exploring the spiritual and magical qualities of Thai Massage and the Thai way of life gives me the opportunity to explore my own universe in a different way. It helps remind me that my world is more than what I typically see. And it challenges me to find ways to embrace new ideas and grow. The use of massage to illustrate this is powerful and helps connect with another person. While I am not actually practicing I hope to incorporate what I have learned in my close relationships.”
