Thai massage: personal development – complete!

Following his six week intensive course, Will has now completed his personal development and is now able to offer clients tailored made Thai massage, treatment and therapy sessions.

Will fully submerged himself in to the six week course, living and studying out in Chiang Mai region for the duration, soaking up the peace and tranquility of the beautiful countryside, while also enjoying the teachings of world renowned Master Therdchai Chumphoopong.

Thai massage is both therapeutic and healing, it is performed in a rhythmic and meditative way to increase well-being to another level.

What is Thai Massage?

Thai massage therapy is a complex treatment, here is a breakdown of information that may be useful.

  1. There are a number of Thai massage therapies. The more traditional therapy studied in the North of the country is called ‘Nuat Thai Boran’ it is different from what is taught in the South which is regarded and called the Royal Method.
  2. Nuat Thai Boran is based on the teachings and methods of the Father, Doctor & Teacher Shivago Komargaj. Which blends together different methods, techniques, rules and disciplines to form a more complete tailored treatment for clients.
  3. The use of rhythmic techniques such as pressure, movement, stretching, thumbing, palming, squeezing, circling, sliding, rolling, rotating, twisting, cracking and chopping. Adding the use of bamboo, tok sen, cloth and hot herbal compressions gives this Nuat Thai Boran a very unique and powerful option on tailored treatments for clients.
  4. Thai (massage) therapy is based on the idea that energy flows through the body in channels called Zen lines, there are roughly 2,700 Sen in the body but Thai Therapy tends to work the Ten major ones. So the direct connection between each Zen line, points along it and its location to any ailments found can be treated using Thai therapy techniques.

Covid 19 update

Important Covid19 Update – Now in Tier 4

Due to new government restrictions of Tier 4, Miach Holistic Therapies are closed until these restrictions are lifted. If any of my customers have purchased vouchers for themselves, friends or family for this year – please do not worry – they will all still be honoured. I really hope that all of my customers and their families are staying safe, and thank you for all your support and patience.

Dry Needling now Available!

Dry Needling and Medical Acupuncture is now available here as Will has just completed his Dry Needling practioners course.

Dry Needling is a treatment technique whereby a sterile, single-use, fine filament needle (acupuncture needle) is inserted into the muscle to assist with decreasing pain and improving function through the release of myofascial trigger points (knots in the muscle).

Dry Needling is a not the same as acupuncture, although there are similarities between the two techniques. The main difference between Dry Needling and acupuncture is the theory behind why the techniques work. Dry Needling is primarily focused on the reduction of pain and restoration of function through the release of myofascial trigger points in muscle. In comparison, acupuncture focuses on the treatment of medical conditions by restoring the flow of energy (Qi) through key points in the body (meridians) to restore balance.
