Welcome to Sacred Bodywork!
Open spaces for personal and professional growth and enhance your touch. Go beyond technique and explore the possiblity of healing mind, body and spirit. Here is our special invitation to join us in our mission: To share and expand the circle of Aloha and Metta to encompass the world.
Sacred Bodywork offers massage continuing education seminars, residential and non-residential retreats in the USA, Europe and Thailand and workshops for spas, healing arts centers, massage therapists, personal trainers yogis and bodyworkers who wish to add a new dimension to their work. Our approach follows the Eastern belief that we are all beings of energy with physical form. Purely mechanical work only treats one aspect of the whole; therefore, truly transformational work must address the energetic being, as well. In all of our workshops, regardless of technique, we teach students to work with energy to make their work even more effective. If you are looking for a certification and NCBTMB, Florida or Louisiana State massage continuing education hours for re-licensing, we will provide you the opportunity to learn and practice in one of our massage and bodywork intensive programs.

Upcoming Courses and Retreats
Sacred Stone Massage - 17-18 January 2017, 9.30am-5.30pm
Level 1 - 16 NCBTMB and Florida CE Hours
Stones have been used in various healing techniques for thousands of years, and the spa industry (and your clients) rediscovered the benefits in the past few years. In this two-day program, you will learn about the history of healing with stones, indications/contraindications/cautions for working with the stones, how to charge and communicate with the stones and how to transmit healing energy through the stones. Because it is one of the most beautiful, this course is taught using the Hawaiian holistic approach and style of working with the stones. All techniques are fully demonstrated, followed by hands-on practice, so you can add this popular treatment to your profile.
Discovering the Chakras Series - 56 Continuing Education hours
- Last Tuesday of the month January-August 2017
In this monthly series, participants will explore key components of the body's energetic systems. Ancient traditions are based on the understanding of the body as a reflection of the energetic being. Any imbalance in the flow of energy throughout the body creates illness. By understanding the chakras, practitioners can better address common blockages. $850 early registration, $1050 regularly
These 56 CE Hours count toward our Thai Certification Program
Thai Facial Massage Class - March 14-15, 2017 - 9.30am-5.30pm
16 NCBTMB/Florida State CE Hours
Very often, the face does not get much attention during a massage but it is one of the most sacred aspects of the massage. Energetically you can work the entire body through the energy lines of the face and you are addressing the highest chakras. In this class, you will learn great hands-on techniques and three specific massage protocols for the face, neck and shoulders from the Thai massage tradition to add to your skill set.
Thai Massage on the Table in the Front Position - April 8-9, 2017 - 9.30am-5.30pm
Chicago, Illinois - 16 CE Hours
Thai Massage is traditionally done on a mat on the floor, but much of the work can easily be adapted to the table. In this two-day course, you will learn a little about the basics of Traditional Thai Massage and how to incorporate Thai techniques into your existing practice. Segments are organized as treatments for commonly encountered conditions, so you can use the material as highly effective standalone treatments or together as a complete Thai on the Table sequence.
Sacred Bodywork is honored to continue the Traditional Thai Culture and spiritual healing arts lineage and always will respect and honor our Thai massage teachers at the School of Thai Massage Shivakomarpaj ~ The Old Medicine Hospital, the Sunshine Massage School, Nerve Touch School of Thai Massage, Jack Chaiya Traditional Thai Massage School, Chiang Mai, Thailand. Special thanks to Dot Po, Lek Chaiya (Thiwon), Jack Chaiya (Photchenet), Jongrak Intatha, Janice Vitavec, Kam Thye Chow, Michael Buck, Noam Tyroler, Pad Thepsai, Shai Plonski, Suriya Chunkesa and Pierce Salguero for being truly inspirational to us.
