Highly Effective Back Therapy

Gain confidence and inspiration by having the best tools and skills

Ideal for massage therapists and yoga teachers

What's the matter with our backs?

Do you know anyone who has back pain? Of course you do . We all do.

If you are a massage therapist, yoga teacher, or other health care provider, you know the sorry state of people's backs.

The posture tells it:
You don't even have to ask people. Just look at them. It's pretty obvious.

Shoulders slumping forward, rounded backs, collapsed posture, head tilted forward, one shoulder higher than the other, etc.

We can put names to it all:
Scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, arthritis, pinched nerves, sciatica, herniated disks...and the list goes on.

Here are the grim statistics about back pain:

 back pain
  • About 80 percent of adults experience back pain at some point in their lifetimes.
  • It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days
  • More than one in three adults say back pain impacts everyday activities, including sleep
  • Americans spend at least $50 billion annually on treating back pain

Issues with back massage

  • Many massage therapists are generalists. They can work on a back, but they don't have very sophisticated therapeutic skills.
  • Many therapists know a standard routine, but they lack a large variety of techniques for very specific back therapy. 
  • Some small therapists  lack the power to work on large backs effectively and deeply without risking the health of their hands.

Allow me to introduce you to a system which overcomes all these issues.

There is a big difference between a general relaxing massage and a highly specific therapeutic massage. Those require:

  • A much higher skill level
  • A much greater repertoire of techniques

Solutions for more effective back therapy

The Thai Massage Advantage for back problems

1. Relaxing the back muscles is not enough!

The spine and the back suffer from lack of movement. They are designed for lots of motion. Any effective therapy needs to include motion elements, not just relaxation. This is where Thai Massage has unique advantages.

Oil massage uses primarily stroking and compression. Thai Massage uses compression as well, but also many additional elements like stretching, traction, rocking, circling. This makes it ideal for back work.

2. No risk for the health of your hands and wrists!

If you have small hands and are working on the back of someone twice your size, that can be difficult!

However Thai Massage is very therapist-friendly because it uses many body parts like forearms, elbows, knees and feet. You can do deep work without stressing your hands, AND you have more power with less effort.

3. The specialization factor

What do you need to provide specialized back therapy sessions and address your client's problems properly?

  1. 1
    You need a large repertoire of effective techniques
  2. 2
    You need a roadmap for the implementation of those techniques - a clear strategy for highly customized back therapy

 That's what this training gives you. It takes you from the level of a generalist to the level of a specialist.

You need confidence that you have the best skills for effective back therapy!

  • Would you like to have such a large repertoire of back techniques that you never have to worry about a lack of skills for back work again?
  • Would you like to be a specialist for excellent and effective back therapy work?
  • Would you like to be able to do an entire session of exclusive back work?

Then the
online training course is for you!

Thai Massage technique

Specialization will reward your massage practice with more inspiration, confidence, better client retention, and more income.

This training course will give you an edge with unique skills, techniques, and a clear strategy for back therapy.

This course is THE most comprehensive Thai Massage back therapy online training course on the market.

Helping clients is great,
but what about the therapist?

More techniques don't necessarily help you if they are too hard on your body. The Thai Massage Back Therapy course focuses on training that is effective and easy on you.

It does that by replacing direct-pressure hand and thumbing techniques (which are typically taught in Thai Massage schools but can be hard your wrists and thumbs) with more flowing motion techniques. Those are easier on you and feel better for the client.

Good techniques are essential,
but there is a lot more to therapy

This course contains the largest selection of Thai Massage back techniques you will ever find.  They are based on the results of two decades of specialized back massage therapy work by the author.

But this course is not just a collection of techniques. It's a complete holistic system which will teach you how to: 

  • Improve the quality of your touch
  • Learn how to sense and perceive through your hands
  • Work with your body and your energy
  • Flow through your sessions with ideal body mechanics and less effort
  • Understand the bigger picture of back problems, causes, lifestyle factors, remedies, treatment protocols 
  • Creatively and intuitively modify the techniques to fit your clients perfectly

Here is a promise:

This course will teach you much more than techniques. 
It WILL make you a back massage therapy expert.

Here is what our course students have to say:

It’s highly commendable that you have created this amazing back sequence which is so different from the typical back massage!


It’s a relaxing, enjoyable and helpful sequence not only for the client but for the therapist as well.
One of the main reasons I wasn’t kin on taking a massage course was my fear of stressing my wrists and hands! Your course resolves that! 

I love how this sequence weaves itself together from one technique to the next accompanied by the breath which then dictates the amount of pressure. It’s the PERFECT recipe for a massage which feels really good!"

Ivanna Khorramshahgol yoga teacher massage therapist

After the successful completion of your courses I feel that I progressed from an ordinary massage therapist to a true healing therapist who can deal with any situation which I might encounter.

Before your training I tended to avoid those clients who asked for a massage on a particular area.

Now I am confident to face such requests. That is the difference which this course brought to me. Thank you very much for your dedicated service."

Can I really learn this online?

If you have some experience with massage or yoga teaching, you can definitely learn this material online. However this question is best answered by our students themselves:

You explain the techniques so that they are understood so easily. It’s a great pleasure to watch these videos now.
Compared to reading books or being in a class, I can honestly say I've learned more from your style of teaching.
It's more like having someone in the living room with you in person! It’s a journey that I am really enjoying. I'm so pleased!

I have to admit that I would never have believed I could receive such a good training online.
I have always been one of those folks who prefer to go to trainings or immersions. Yet here I am, learning, practicing and engaging.
I LOVE the pacing of the course, and the fact that I can go back and look at something again and again, often in a slightly different way.
