How to bring harmony: Thai Massage for back conditions and spine mobility.

When we talk about the “Back” it is very important to consider all the musculoskeletal structures that are below and directly related to the spine, as well as the energetic pathways that cross all these structures. Further, since the spine is a Central Channel, other systems, such as the visceral, respiratory and nervous systems, have a very significant relationship to back health and therefore it is important to integrate and work on these systems as a Unity. 

During this 5-day seminar we will focus on a holistic approach integrating advanced techniques to bring health to the spine. We will be using hot herbal compresses, herbal balm, acupressure points, pressures and stretches along energy lines, bringing circulation into all the tissues, nourishing the fluids, improving joint mobility and vitality. 

The dance between dynamic and static techniques and the “stillness” from the craniosacral biodynamic approach will bring the perfect balance to help us to find harmony and integration within the client’s system, releasing pain and enhancing ease of movement. 

This seminar is designed for any practitioner who has completed a basic Thai Massage course and has a solid Thai Massage Training and Practice. This training will be in English and Spanish (if needed).

Aims for the seminar:

  • Develop quality and precision of touch, improving your attention and listening to the body.
  • Enhancing therapeutic toolbox, learning a wide range of new techniques.
  • Learn a complete routine for lower back and neck conditions.

Catia describes Thai Massage as “a fascinating and creative spiritual dance, with a powerful element of surrender, which benefits both the receiver and the giver”.

Catia has held a degree in Occupational Therapy since 2005, where she started on her path as a healer, treating neurological disorders. During her study and work as an Occupational Therapist, she felt there was a lack of body-mind connection and that the treatments were mainly superficial and body oriented. This motivated her to look deeper and inspired her to  want to also heal the energetic and emotional layers of the body. Through the practice of Thai Yoga Massage she found the depth that she was looking for.

Cátia had her first contact with the ancient healing art of Thai Yoga Massage in 2010, in Thailand through the well known Sunshine Network. After 3 years of training, including several additional courses in Thailand, India, Germany and Greece, she became a Thai Massage practitioner in 2013. Catia fell in love with the various physical and spiritual elements of Thai Massage which led her to return to India and Thailand on various trips to further improve her techniques and understanding. She feels blessed for having had the good fortune to learn from so many great teachers and develop her own practice.

During her time in Asia, Cátia also studied Advanced Dynamic Osteothai, Integrated Craniosacral Biodynamics,Tok Sen, Moxibustion Therapy, Hot Herbal Compress Massage, Hatha yoga and Yin Taoism based Yoga. Integrating this knowledge into her therapeutic foundation, her treatments work holistically to restore peace and equilibrium. The body’s energy systems are nurtured and harmonised, promoting a powerful sense of wellbeing. Cátia is renowned for her kind and loving presence, her sense of intuition, sensitivity and gentle touch, and her deep trust in life.
