In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage based on yoga, ayurveda, and the martial arts, the massage therapist guides the client through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body's energy lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system and balances the body energetically.
The course text leads readers through every aspect of this ancient bodywork therapy using more than 125 detailed, step-by-step photographs. Techniques for performing a one-hour massage are also demonstrated in the accompanying DVD.
Concepts presented include the history, benefits and key elements of the practice, such as anatomy and physiology and contraindications from the Thai viewpoint and tips for integrating Thai concepts with Western health theory.
