200 hour Certification Program

Next Training Begins
October 21!

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 Dat Ton, 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. 

All that being said, it’s important for you to understand that we are grounded in the physical practice of Thai bodywork.
