Certificate IPHM

Become a holistic Thaï Yoga Massage Practitioner

Hi, I’am Marco Bartolomeo.

back in 2012 I went to my first Thai Yoga Massage Course in the jungle of northern Thailand, where I studied with several teachers, diving deeper into the world of Yoga & Thai Massage. Fascinated by the art of ancient healing touch, I travelled to San Diego (CA) to study Holistic Health, Bodywork , Yoga & Qi Gong at IPSB Collage.


Fusing them all together, I developed my own style of bodywork healing therapy called “Soul in Touch”, I love to share. I also created my signature style Yoga, called YogaQiFlow, a unique blend of Hatha Vinyasa Yoga & Qi Gong, following a spiritual approach, to allow the inner teacher to become alive. I like to support each of my students to get inspired by their own presence, and unite the softness (YIN) with the strength (YANG) we all hold in us.

Why joining?

Most people book a Thai Massage Course thinking they want to learn how to massage and leave with much more than that

Do you know the feeling, when all seems to be ‘ok’, but somehow you feel stuck in Life?

Or you might feel anxious, stressed about life and you don’t really know what to do?

You feel it’s time for change but you just don’t know where to start?

Or are you just curious to go far beyond the physical body, feeling the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies as well?

Great, you came to the right place!

When I went to my first Thaï Massage Course at LAHU Village in Thailand, I was kind of lost, suffering from anxiety attacks, was stressed out and hoping that Thaï Massage could offer me a fresh start. What attracted me to this course was not the massage techniques, but the offer to embark onto a journey of self discovery, to observe without judgement and connect in a natural environment to nature and other humans.

After this Course I felt like a different human, rejuvenated, full of energy and purpose. In my example I got the answer to my question: “Why am I here for?” I’m here to be at service, at service to myself and others. 

To touch far beyond the physical body means to touch consciously with presence and awareness. All of that and much more we will explore together, and entering into the mystic unknown.

What will you learn/receive?

Learn the essence of Qi Gong & how this beautiful practice teaches us body mechanics for the Bodywork practice as well as bringing us into the present moment

Qi Gong & YogaQiFlow will prepare you for the Bodywork Practice, not just physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually

My full presence & personalised support throughout the whole course

Certificate from IPHM (International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine) 

You will receive a feeling of being in a like minded community 🙂

How is this Bodywork Training different from others? ​

More than just a different bodywork form, Soul in Touch unites energetic & relaxing moments
and balances YIN & YANG energies we all hold within us.

This unique meditative practice is like a beautiful dance, that increases presence and awareness,
awakens the inner guide, and creates space to release emotions.

In this way of treating, we co-create a space of healing, leaving alpha/beta brain waves and entering into delta/theta where self healing sources can be accessed. We enter in a space, where control doesn’t exist anymore and the both giver and receiver entering into a space of timelessness and bliss.

Soul in Touch consists of different Bodywork Techniques – Thaï Massage, elements of Osteopathy and Physiotherapy as well as Sensory Repatterning, a unique Somatic Bodywork experience.

So I have created a space for professionals to get inspired not just by the innovative course content,
but also by each other and getting to know themselves on a deeper level.
