IVAN THAI MASSAGE SCHOOL
Ivan Medici started the Thai Massage school in 2013, after being authorized by the internationally respected “Sunshine Network” school in Thailand. See the web site www.asokannada.com; and by the Italian Federation of Traditional Thai massage. See the web site www.fittm.it
The purpose of the Thai Massage Art school was much inspired by the tradition started by Asokananda, the founder of the Sunshine Network, to keep the practice of Thai Massage in its traditional healing form, to heal body, mind and spirit for both the giver and the practitioner; for these reasons the trainings are mainly offered in a retreat form which include the daily practice of Yoga exercises known as Asanas, breathing techniques and Meditation.
Thai Yoga Massage is a profound spiritual journey through the application of presence, a meditative mind, a caring soft touch, being in the rhythm of the breath, and deep listening. It is a form of active meditation in motion, and as Asokananda once said, “it is the extension of Vipassana Meditation, applying the principles of Metta, loving kindness, and Sati, mindfulness, while giving a Thai Massage Treatment.”
The Thai Massage Art School offers different kinds of trainings in the forms of workshops, courses, and retreats.

If you are interested in hosting a training in you center please contact us and we will be happy to co-create!
THAI MASSAGE TREATMENTS
Ivan Medici Thai yoga massage treatments are influenced by the knowledge he gained from studying with different teachers in Chiang mai, in Northern Thailand, and in Europe.
He fuses the work learned from the static work from Master Pichest Bhoonthumme, and the Osteo-Thai and dynamic work from David Lutt, and the influences of other teachers such as such Felicity Joy, Itzhak Helman, Arnaud L’Hermitte , Krishnatakis, Remco, Jack Chaiya, Ohm Rinraya, Suriyan Punyafoo, Dot Po and Ajarn Nat.
Ivan incorporates all with meditative presence learned from many years of Vipassana meditation practice, to bring it to a deep level of soft touch, breath awareness, applied loving kindness, and attentive listening to the body needs.
Every treatment is different, because every body and every day are different. To find out where Ivan is available for treatments contact him directly on is e-mail
