Nuat Boran Advanced Class, Berlin, Germany 2013
The Advanced class in Nuat Boran offers a unique opportunity for current Thai massage students and practitioners to clarify the theoretical foundation of Nuat Boran and its place within Traditional Thai medicine. All the basic concepts of Traditional Thai medicine, such are Elements, Sen, Body Centers, Body Layers, Khwan and other will be discussed in great detail. This theoretical understanding is necessary for one to be able to practice Nuat Boran. We will also go through the basic set of Reusi Dat Ton exercises where Nuat Boran originated from. The authentic, integral Wai Khru ceremony will be also introduced, for attendees to become familiar with Nuat Boran as an ancient spiritual practice.
We will understand how Traditional Thai medicine perceives the Universe and the human’s place in it. How does the Universe manifest itself? How does the human manifest himself/herself within the Universe? What is the human’s interaction with his/her environment? What does the human body and mind consist of? How do they function? What is the meaning of good health and illness? How does illness come about? How do we diagnose an illness? Is it possible to cure an illness or not? What therapy is capable of curing it?
Once these facts are explained, we shall focus on Nuat Boran and the events when it is applied as a therapy – what does physical therapy mean? What parts of the body does it affect? What is the body made of and how does it function? What are the Elements? What are the layers? What are the Wind gates? What are the Sen channels and what kinds of Sen channels are there? How can we affect them? How do we make general diagnosis? What techniques do we apply in our work? How do we check the efficiency of a treatment?
The aim of this class is to give a deeper understanding of Nuat Boran practice.
