200 hour Certification Program

Blue Lotus Thai Healing Studies - 200 Hour Certification

For the past 12 years, Blue Lotus has been training people in Traditional Thai Bodywork.  The 200 hour program is a comprehensive program that not only covers the physical practice but everything that supports it.

We explore the basics of its Buddhist roots which informs how a Thai medical practitioner looks at the body, disease and disease causation using Thai element and sen theories. The program also delves into Reusi Daton, an expansive system of self-care including breath practices, meditation, self-massage and much more.  Finally, the Blue Lotus training also teaches some of the many physical therapy practices that are a part of this grand and self-contained traditional medical system, grown from the fertile soil and balmy climate of Thailand
