However...it is often misunderstood and taught only as a mechanical sequence - leaving out the heart and soul of it - the real art. This can result in two issues:
Thai Massage has the reputation of sometimes being quite intense and painful, and maybe not suitable for all clients because of that.
Why is that?
Thai Massage uses lots of stretches and manipulations. Unless the therapist is quite sensitive, it is easy to overdo those stretches and cause discomfort or even pain.
Good Thai Massage is not painful by nature. It is a true healing art - not just a sequence of techniques, and there is a very elegant solution for this "pain" issue.
The traditional style of Thai Massage relies heavily on thumb pressure and palm presses. This can be hard on the hands of the therapist and can lead to injury.
Also there is often insufficient training in good body mechanics which can also lead to strain for the therapist. There is a solution for this issue as well...
I love that with Thai Massage you tend to use either your body weight or that of your client to do the work. I’ve so many friends who have given up massage work as they found it too hard on their bodies.
Such a system actually exists, and it is called
Since Thai Massage is done fully dressed without oil, pressure tends to be linear - direct pressure on one point - instead of long stroking moves like in oil massage. This can be intense.
Thai Rocking Massage solves this by using motion techniques like rocking, rolling, circling, wiggling, or swinging. This distributes the pressure over a larger area and eliminates pressure on one point only.
This works for stretches as well, making them much gentler and more gradual.
These motion techniques have three advantages:

I absolutely loved Shama's Thai Rocking massage course! His teaching style is very clear, engaging and informative, and his emphasis on using the whole body and proper alignment are so important to learn.
The course material could definitely be used to create a wonderful healing session on its own, or incorporated into many types of massage and bodywork approaches. Shama, you ROCK!!

The Thai Rocking Massage course far exceeded my expectations in every way. Fantastic value for money, brilliant teaching, very good quality videos that are easy to access, and second to none in terms of interaction with the teacher.
You get so much more than you think you are paying for. I really think that Shama’s work has revolutionized online learning and proved that it can be a very effective way of learning .

That's a question best answered by some of our students:
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 sitting room with you in person!
It’s a journey that I am really enjoying. I'm so pleased!

I took a local training in the US a year ago, and didn't feel comfortable practicing it on my clients, with nothing to refer back to for resources.
In the back of my mind was "what if I am not doing this correctly"?
Your program is exactly what I need .
I don't have the time to travel and take classes as often as I would like, so this is the perfect solution.
And, it’s an amazing course with a great teacher.

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. So please keep doing what you are doing!

This is an online training course. You can access it conveniently from our membership platform.
Training schedule: A new training module will become available to you every two days so that you have time to practice without information overload.
You don't have to keep up with the course schedule. You can totally work at your own pace. So if it takes you three or 4 days per module - no problem!
Your access does not expire. Even if you cannot get started immediately, or if life gets in the way for a while, your course will always be available to you, even months or years later.
I loved the Thai Rocking Massage course. So far the rocking techniques have been well received by those I introduced them to.
One particular client has benefited immensely already as he has gradually given up on resisting the stretches and is now flexible like a willow branch AND no more back pain!

You can use the rocking techniques for Thai Massage or, with a little modification, many techniques work for any other kind of massage.
Thai Massage is traditionally done on a floor mat, and that's how this course is presented.
But many of our students are successfully using the techniques on a table as well.

This whole series of videos has been fantastic! I love the thought out and detailed explanations of the modules.
Everything is laid out to give a solid foundation, and then move into more detailed work. What is more important is that my clients LOVE THE TECHNIQUES.
Thai Rocking Massage has made a big difference in my practice. The rocking motion is relaxing, gentle and effective.
My clients LOVE to be rocked!! I really enjoyed the course, now I always use rocking techniques in every massage I give, and my clients love it!!

The course is taught in the traditional Thai way, on floor mats. This allows for better ergonomics, more power with less effort, and more techniques than can be done on a table.
However many of our students adapt a lot of the course material to table work and blend it with other massage styles. This can easily be done with a little creativity.
Your access never expires.If you want to be really sure that you have access to the course forever, you can download all course materials. ?
However even without downloading you always have access to the course.
We have extensive documentation about this on our website here:
No, this is not possible. This would defeat the purpose of our style of training which has proven successful over many years.
The material is organized so that it lets you build your skills gradually in a logical way. And you do need practice time between the modules.
So downloading everything at once would only cause overwhelm and it would defeat the entire structure of the course.
If you already own our Complete Thai Massage course, you will know a few of the techniques. There is about 20 percent overlap or duplication between the two courses.
However this course is 100% about rocking techniques and will give you many new techniques, ideas and inspiration.
You can get a refund within 14 days from the purchase of the course by submitting a ticket in the support portal of the membership portal, or by emailing your refund request to email@example.com. The refund will be processed normally within 24 hours.
