Kei Ngu, Head tutor of Shivago Thai School based in Edinburgh is holding an intensive two day workshop on authentic Thai medicine as practiced by Mo Nuad (Traditional medicine doctors) in Lanna (Northern Thailand)
This is not the same as Thai Yoga Massage that people learn in the commercial schools in Thailand and in Europe for the most part. It is the "real deal", there are only 6 teachers outside of Thailand who are qualified to teach Thai medicine and Kei is one of those.
If you are a beginner or an experienced therapist then this course really is a MUST. You will learn aspects of Ruesi Dat Ton (Thai Yoga), palming, thumb work, correct posture, body mechanics, the Wai Khru, sen and 5 Element theory.
This is the Foundation level and is a certificated course. Be prepared to work hard as there is a lot of information to get across and to practice.
There is a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of £75
Early bird discount £135.00 pounds before 16th June
otherwise it is £175.00 pounds after that date.
There are only 6 spaces left, so please do RSVP. To pay your deposit and book your place go to Thai Massage Study and Practice Club meetup page.
As I write this I am in Chiang Rai (Lanna Kingdom) learning from Nephyr of the Naga Center.
I have been a practicing Thai massage therapist for several years and have studied at several schools in Chiang Mai to teacher level so believe me when I say this stuff is the authentic medicine of Thailand. It has a depth and history that the commercial schools only touch upon briefly if at all.
So book your place and come and learn some fascinating and practical aspects of Thai medicine.
PLEASE NOTE: THE COURSE IS HELD OVER TWO DAYS 4 HOURS EACH DAY
ps I wont be contactable by phone as I'm out of the country but you can call Kei at his school or leave a message on my email or on my meetup page.
