Part 1: Thai anatomy and hermit stretching yoga

Thai anatomy

A therapist in healing acupressure treatment requires a basic understanding of anatomy. You have to know how the body works. You will learn the structure of the body and the relationship between the structures. You will also discover the structural and functional changes associated with diseases. 

We have 72.000 energy lines that line the frame of our physical body, called “Sen” in Thailand. These 72.000 energy lines move through our body via the 10 major life energy channels, known as “sen sib”. Our vital life force travels through these channels. Due to physical injuries, bad posture, stress, emotional trauma, etc., this energy can get trapped or blocked, causing pain or illness. Unblocking this energy flow results in improved health.  

In this course we focus on sen sib, the 10 major life energy channels. You will learn in depth these channels and their specific relation with our organs and muscles. To stimulate the life energy, it’s sufficient to massage these 10 channels. Blockages will be removed and prevents that diseases develop or worsen. 


Hermit stretching yoga

Wind in nature is movement. The health and harmony of the body depend on the smooth flow of internal wind within the body. The internal wind is stuck in the body during long periods of sitting and inactivity. The most effective way to remove stuck wind and to keep wind in balance is through the practice of Reusi Dutton. Reusi means hermit which refers to the ascetic hermits living and practicing in the Himalayas around 500 BC. Dutton means self-stretching exercises.


The aim of hermit stretching yoga is not the agility of the body. The goal of the exercises is to massage the body from the inside. Some poses will be done by lying or sitting on a yoga mat. Other stretches will be performed standing. Balance and equilibrium are important aspects. Not only physically but also in spirit. By being fully concentrated on the correct application of the exercise and in harmony with the breathing, you can see the hermit stretching yoga as a form of meditation. The mind will follow the concentration of the body and becomes calmer. It’s recommended as prevention of disease symptoms and complaints. You will learn specific exercises for many complaints. 

Part 2: treatments for acute and chronic complaints

You will learn how to treat specific acute and chronic complaints. For each treatment you need to have the knowledge of sen sib, the 10 major life energy channels. The core of this course is practice. You will get the occasion to practice under my supervision.
