Course Materials: Thai on the Table DVD and Vedic Massage 108 practitioner's manual by 'Mukti' Michael Buck of the Vedic Conservatory.
Course Description: The biggest resistance that massage therapists, or perhaps their clients, have to traditional Oriental bodywork is being restricted to working on a mat on the floor. That concern has now been eliminated, because Thai on the Table adapts classical Thai massage techniques for use on a regular massage table. The techniques are best performed with a client who is wearing loose, comfortable clothing. Michael Buck of the Vedic Conservatory has put together well over three hours of DVD demonstrations plus a 125 page practitioner manual with essays and illustrations. Your practice will never be the same. You can offer a full Oriental treatment, or incorporate bits and pieces of it into your standard massage. You are only limited by your imagination. What are you waiting for? Just add this to your cart and get started right away.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Will your online tests work on my phone, tablet, or other device? Yes. Since technology continues its rapid pace forward, it is impossible for us to provide a current and complete list of all devices on which our courses will work. We invite you to take our free sample course so that you can personally see if the online content and test work on your device.
Can I print the online test to work on it at my convenience? No. If you are unable to complete the entire test in one sitting, you can work on the test in installments, and our system will save your progress.
What happens if I fail the test? Do I have to pay again? No. If you happen to fail the test, you can continue to retest until you do pass at no additional charge.
Is online testing the only testing option you have available? If you enroll online, you will automatically be set up to take the online exam. If you prefer to have a paper test we are happy to accommodate that. We can email the test and you can scan and email it back to us for grading. There is a $20 fee for processing paper testing, which includes the premium, gold-embossed sealed certificate (online testers also have the option to purchase a premium certificate for $15 plus shipping).
What is the difference between cognitive and kinesthetic courses? Cognitive courses are those that teach concepts related to massage therapy, but do not teach specific hands-on techniques. Courses such as ethics, pathology, anatomy, and research are classified as cognitive. Kinesthetic courses are those that teach specific hands-on techniques that you can use on clients during a massage therapy session. Some states limit how many kinesthetic courses can be completed in an online or home study setting. Refer to our state guidelines page for specifics about your state.
Do you report our course completions to the NCBTMB, ABMP, AMTA, or any other agencies? None of these agencies have a method for us to report to them on your behalf. They prefer that you provide the evidence of CEs that their renewal process details.
