Nationally recognized Thai Massage instructor Damion Bond and intern Lee Croy open this relaxing workshop with a brief lecture on the philosophy, etiquette, and history of Thai massage followed by a guided demonstration of relieving postures and movements that cover and sooth all major muscle groups and energy meridians. Explaining how palms, elbows, forearms, and feet can be used as effective healing tools, she guides each partner through a forty-five minute relaxing massage. Gentle stretching combined with decompressing maneuvers allows each partner to feel relaxed in this yoga-like series…it is as though your partner is practicing yoga for your body while you remain passive and at ease.
