Tym retreat - advanced level 3 - Using elbows, knees, feet


The retreat will be held from APRIL 9th to 13th 2020 at the Caigolara center, located in the Val di Taro province of Parma. (http://cacigolara.it/en/home-2/)

it is open to all students who have attended at least a 60-hour basic course with Ivan Medici (in my case the basic training levels 1 and 2) or with other Thai Massage training schools. One of the characteristics of Thai Massage is the possibility it offers us to be able to use not only hands and thumbs but also other parts of the body such as what we will see in this course which are the elbows, knees and feet. These give us the possibility of creating an infinite number of ways of working the body and the energy lines, of being able to expand the work according to the needs of the recipient and in particular on those occasions when, for example, the receiver is much larger and heavier than us and / or needs a deeper job. In these cases, working with hands and thumbs may not be enough and can lead to having to use the latter in an excessive way, creating pain or excessive fatigue, and so to protect ourselves and to obtain a more effective result we learn to use the other parts of the body.

My first experience of Thai massage was in Thailand in 2000, while I was on an adventure trip. I was inspired to receive the first treatment of my life that turned out to be a turning point and the beginning of an even bigger adventure.
At this time a seed was planted that has increasingly become a passion driven by the heart. Because I felt so many benefits - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - I decided to dedicate most of my life to learning this ancient art of healing, and finally I felt particularly motivated to share this gift of conscious touch.
During the last 15 years I have had the opportunity to travel to many places, to learn from various experienced teachers who have allowed me to see, hear and develop many different perspectives of practice.
I had the opportunity to learn both with great Thai masters like Jack Chaya, Yan, Ajarn Sinchai and Ajarn Pichet, and with Western teachers, experimenting with the different approaches of static and dynamic work and Osteothai - a combination of Osteopathy and Thai massage
One of the most profound aspects was to get in touch with the sacredness of the practice understood as two bodies that communicate from soul to soul. This, as well as the aspects of yoga and meditation as basic principles, make Thai massage such a powerful path for me. This eventually led me to start sharing this knowledge and undertake the teaching training course with the Sunshine Network school. (Www.asokananda.com)
Since 2013 they are teachers authorized by the "Sunshine Network" school and by the Italian Traditional Thai Massage Federation.
