Learn more about Thai Yoga Massage

A Thai Massage course is always a spiritual experience that combines meditation, yoga and the practice of loving-kindness. A communion between two human beings, a co-created dance of mindful touch and presence. The way we move, the way we breathe, the way we contact and connect, the way we hold space and allow healing to happen… this is the ancient art of Thai Yoga Massage.

Learn more about Osteopathy

Osteopathy is based on a crystal clear vision of Anatomy, Physiology and body mechanics… and aims to bring back vitality and mobility in the areas where it is most needed. Through our ability to listen and touch our patient with softness and precision, tapping into our unlimited curiosity, we can help restore balance and create a platform where healing can unfold.

We are excited and enthusiastic to share effective osteopathic methods such as Reciprocal Tension, Functional Exaggeration, Hoover, Inhibition, Recoil, 
Rebound, Pumping, GOT, etc… We will also provide a first introduction to the Cranial Field (Cranio-Sacral therapy) and osteopathic treatment of the organs (kidneys, mesentery, liver, spleen, heart… )

The Training:

40 hours of certifying training spread over 5 days in residential.

The underlying mission of this course is to get together and develop our ability to have a meaningful dialogue with the structure under our hands. We learn this new language and we can deeply touch bones, joints, muscles, fascias, organs, etc… We become very specific, without losing a global holistic approach.

About Pau
A family trip to India, back in 2005, started it all. I dropped my career as a radio sports journalist and together with my brother Wari and my sister Mireia launched the Omshanti Yoga Studio (2006) and, later on, the Barcelona Yoga Conference (2011).

The path has been filled with Yoga, AcroYoga and soon enough Thai Massage showed up and stole my heart. For the last decade I have traveled around the globe sharing this art, inspired by teachers of the Sunshine Network. Laurino Bertelli, and his dedication to Vipassana meditation, the visionary OsteoThai founders David Lutt & Arno L’Hermitte, and the Sangha spirit, generosity and joy from Takis and Kerys at the Sunshine House Greece.

After graduating from a 5-year Osteopathy program at SICO (Switzerland), under the mentorship of Phillipe Druelle, the mission is crystal clear… to create a global platform, the Thai Massage Academy, and dive deep into this magical fusion between Thai Yoga Massage and Osteopathy.

Testimonial:

« I followed a spark & it lead me here to ‘The Meeting Point’ with Pau Castelslagué.
A sweet dive into structural anatomy & visceral receptivity, touch & inquiry ♡ A container of precision & depth dreamt up & placed into action by a truly magical teacher. Thank you @paucastellsague for supporting me to be here 🙏🏼 & sharing your years of dedication, devotion & curiosity with us the way you do.

My understanding of the human body has forever been changed! I will now hear bones speaking, I will visualize the characteristics of organs & want to know what they feel, know & say. All this thanks to animated anatomy, humor & love for the human body.

I vow to continue to explore that which lays in the darkness of our fluids, surrounded by intricate intelligence & vow to continue to speak to all these inner parts of myself, gathering data as I go so I can be a well of support in both mine & yours journey. May we all be guided by the wisdom of our bodies & know their sweetness, purpose & magic.

My heart is softer from this experience & I’m really humbled by the wide variety of teachings awaiting our attention, by the sensitivity in the beautiful people I got to meet.

I’m really ready to digest the magnificent wisdom of the body through my movement & yours !! & continue to touch bodies with an loving empty heart.«
