Why this course:
Thai massage is very popular in health spa’s as rather than rubbing and kneading actions that characterize other types of massage, Thai Massage utilizes lengthening stretches and rocking motions to support flexibility, enhance circulation, and relieve pain. Thai Massage increases circulation, which infuses your tissues with nutrients and oxygen. This, in turn, helps your body rid itself of carbon dioxide, toxins, and metabolic byproducts. This helps your body become more efficient at reversing the aging process.
This Level 1 course teaches you a complete 90-minute massage.

Clients comments: “I’ve been to the most expensive Beauty School in Cape Town, but I have never received such quality hands-on training as given by Brenda-Lee. At a previous expensive college I came away unsure and “shaky” to give a treatment, but through Brenda-Lee’s training, I have confidence to give good advice and treatments”
