Barefoot Thai Massage
Use your feet to give a deep Thai massage. We will be working on a mat on the floor, using a chair for balance. Imagine if Thai and Ashiatsu had a baby - it would grow up to be this massage!
Traditional Thai has a lot of moves where the therapist is on their knees, but this class we will be either standing or seated on a chair. Great if you have stiff knees! Deep compressions are performed with a soft foot, using your body weight. Effortless pressure!
Thai massage is performed on a fully clothed client, using compression, stretching, pin-and-stretch, movement, and rocking.
*This class qualifies for 16 CEs in
massage license renewals.

This is also a beginner class - no prerequisites. You will learn a full 60 minute routine. I particularly like this class for deep work that is easy on the therapist's body!
Come to class ready to learn and practice! We will have a lot of hands-on practice time so that you can practice each movement and create muscle memory. You'll also have the opportunity to receive each technique, so that you know how it feels for the client. This class is largely demonstration and hands-on practice.
You will receive a handout to take home so that you can remember all your favorite moves. You will also receive a link to a YouTube video of all the moves.
We will be working on each other fully clothed, so wear comfortable, stretchy clothing.
Class Supplies to bring:
Fitted bottom sheet
Face cradle cover
I will be providing Thai floor mats to work on.

I hate massage. Wow - what a way to start a testimonial. I do love giving massages but receiving is an entirely different matter. At least that was true until I took the Table Thai class. I learned a ton despite the napping. I was in such an amazing place as a result of what I learned that I was like a cream puff wafting through the rippling air streams in the class. Okay - so - maybe I wasn't exactly like that but it sure felt like it. Can't wait for the sideline Table Thai class that is coming. One thing I know without question is that I no longer hate massage the way that I thought I did. Thanks Chantelle.
I been to three of Chantelle’s massage classes! I always learn something new every time. She helps me save myself from injuring myself by showing me safe effect moves with little effort. I can’t wait to take the bamboo class! Chantelle has great energy, always so inviting, has a special gift of making everyone feel comfortable, and is a great listener! Thank you Chantelle for allowing me to be a part of your journey to help others!

As a veteran Massage Therapist with many education classes behind me, I highly recommend any of Chantelle's classes. She is a knowledgeable. professional instructor. She is willing to share what she knows to any willing to learn.
Excellent class! The instructor explained clearly and did an excellent job of demonstrating techniques. We had plenty of hands on work, and she came around to give guidance as we worked. Best class I have attended in a very long time!
