Individualized study (formerly called apprentice style)
Now taking registrations for 2024. An individualized course of study that begins at the beginning. We establish your individual learning experience at a pace suitable to both student and teacher. You study with Lise until the time you have shown competence with a 2 hour treatment. The average student spends 6 months in regular study- one on one time with Lise, weekly or twice/month. Some take longer. Not all meetings need be in person, though the hands on bits are best transmitted this way.
You will become confident and skillful in the art of Thai Bodywork and have the opportunity to practice on and with others who have completed or are currently in this program. At the conclusion of this basic training you will be well versed in Thai Bodywork and eligible to continue taking on a more specialized course of study.

"Learning Thai Massage with Lise was a transformative experience. Was I intimidated to work one on one with my teacher? Yes. Was that part of the learning? Yes. Thai Massage requires presence. Presence first with yourself and then with your partner (some say “giver and receiver” which is an oversimplification, but ok). So I showed up even though I had nerves. And I kept showing up as my confidence and reverence for the work blossomed. The way Lise taught me was at that same time old school and also very efficient. I was already a joyful receiver of Thai massage so maybe it made it easier for me to experience a sequence in my body and amazingly it was not difficult to then practice the sequence. Lise was a gentle guide, holding the practice with great respect and helping me to discover my way with it. The gifts I received studying with Lise are treasured blessings that I will continue to enjoy and share for the rest of my life. I access and use body learning that I did with Lise to bring ease to my body and my family on a daily basis. Thank you, Lise. 🙏❤️"~ Jennifer Hebert
