Mobility Training

Combine your new skills with mobility training.

Perform Thai massage safely and effectively

Thai massage is demanding and requires mobility and strength. We begin each day with mobility training combining Thai Yoga (Reusi Dat Ton), Qigong and calisthenics exercises.

Mobility training includes a range of exercises designed to:

increase your range of motion
control muscles surrounding each joint
help you move more actively

Mobility and flexibility are related, but they are not the same thing. Mobility includes moving through a full range of motion; you need flexibility in those muscles to be mobile. The difference between mobility and flexibility matters because it affects athleticism and injury risk.

Flexibility and stretching involve lengthening your muscles. By increasing the length of your connective tissue, your body is better equipped to move through a full range of movements without causing injury, stiffness and pain.

Mobility is proprioception, your awareness of the position and movement of your body. Mobility training includes exercises that increase your range of motion, help you control muscles surrounding each joint, and enable you to move more actively.

Mobility training optimizes movement and performance by increasing the range of motion within your joints and surrounding muscles. So mobility exercises include flexibility but also pliability and strength. When you’re more mobile, you can train harder, recover faster, and perform better.

Since many Thai massage techniques involve deep stretches and low squats, mobility training is essential for a practitioner to perform these techniques properly. Mobility training also helps prevent muscles from becoming tight, immobile, and suffering from an overall lack of movement.

This training will help students perform Thai Massage healthily and effectively.
