Tidasavanh was founded by Bebe Khambay. He grew up in Vientiane, Laos that borders with Thailand. “Nuad Bo Han” or Thai massage is part of his culture. He was taught by village elders to give Thai massage from the age of 9. He started by stepping on the backs of his family’s elders. He also prepared herbal medicines to help relieve aches and pains from X daily activities. He learned his massage style mostly from a teacher who taught blind people how to do massage in Vientiane, Laos. Bebe came to USA in 200 and moved to Virginia In 2007. He has been working at therapy centers in Northern Virginia since 2009 as a licensed massage practitioner and is a graduate from Northern Virginia Therapeutic Massage School.
Traditional Thai Massage is performed on a mat on the floor through comfortable loose clothing. It is an accessible form of massage, combining meditation, stretches, acupressure/compressions, reflexology and energy movement. You don’t have to be an expert to produce outstanding results. This system makes learning easy and this workshop shows you how to tap into your own innate abilities to give a sensational massage. Learn how to deliver a complete 60, 75, 90, and 120 minute massage, focusing on:
Safe and effective massage techniques that anyone can master
Practice principles of body alignment
Integrate Metta (loving kindness) and meditation into your massage
Massage for shoulders, head, back, hands, legs, abdomen, and feet
Perfect for people without any bodywork experience, this training is also invaluable as continuing education for massage practitioners. The gift of compassionate touch is empowering and available to everyone ready to discover it.
