THAI YOGA MASSAGE TRAINING
Thai Yoga Massage is a modern modality of healing with ancient roots in Buddhism, Yoga and Ayurveda from India; traditional medicine from China; and shamanism from the indigenous tribes of Thailand. Combining rhythmic acupressure, assisted yoga stretching exercises, gentle twisting, joint mobilization, energy work and meditation, it results in a blissfully integrated experience that is revitalizing yet deeply relaxing.
Treatments are done with the client comfortably clothed and performed on a special mat on the floor, without the use of oils or lotion. Typically, the practitioner will utilize most of his or her body, including feet, knees, forearms (and hands, fingers, and thumbs) to weave together a sophisticated sequence of stretches, rhythmic acupressure, and gentle rocking
movements. This unique “Eight Limbs” approach to healing through energy balancing is more characteristic of the Northern Villager/Commoner style, rather than the Southern/Royal style that uses the hands and thumbs almost exclusively.
For practitioners, the style of Thai body and energy work that Deon de Wet teaches , is totally sustainable over the long term, since it avoids the overuse and fatigue of hands and thumbs so problematic to many professional body healers and massage therapists.
ABOUT THE TEACHER: DEON
As one of America’s most experienced trainers in traditional Thai Yoga Massage, our teacher, Deon de Wet specializes in continuing education for wellness professionals such as yoga teachers; massage therapists; Pilates instructors and personal trainers.
Born and raised in South Africa, Deon first encountered Traditional Thai Massage on a beach while traveling in Thailand in the year 2000, and recalls his first session bringing forth sensations of profound physical and emotional wellbeing.
Since 2002, Deon has focused professionally on helping people to feel better from the inside out, by applying his personalized interpretation of Thai-style yogic bodywork to private treatment sessions around the world in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, London, and Washington, D.C.
Later and as his therapeutic yoga practice evolved, Deon began to teach, sharing the profound wisdom of the work at yoga studios and massage schools around Los Angeles, then elsewhere in the U.S. and eventually all around the world, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa. Ultimately, he formalized a standard curriculum and created guidebooks and videos for his unique, integrated method.
Today, as a professional instructor, Deon is certified and sponsored by the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB #450538-07) to teach New York LMTs continuing education that is accepted by the state of New York for license renewal.
Still returning to Thailand periodically, he spends time in Chiang Mai, studying with master Thai Massage teachers and practitioners such as Pichest Boonthumme, one of the legendary Asokananda’s early teachers.
Deon lives in the Upper Ojai Valley of Ventura County, California, where he also teaches Hatha Yoga. He practices and teaches regularly in Los Angeles and North Carolina.
