    Book details


Drawing from Thai history, cultural studies, Buddhist religion, and yogic practices, as well as a modern understanding of anatomy and physiology, this guidebook bridges the gap between theory and practice while presenting bodywork as it is understood in Thailand-as a therapeutic medical science. Presenting detailed analysis of each step in a Thai massage routine, the history, spiritual traditions, and ethical codes are offered in an engaging, informal style. Numerous photographs and diagrams illustrate the variety of techniques used, and examples of routines for treating specific disorders are discussed. Updated with new layout, photos, and expanded text, this exhaustive handbook is complete with a section on the main energy meridians and diagrams of acupressure points, making it the perfect tool to accompany anyone studying this popular healing modality.

"This book is a treasure, like the palm-leaf manuscripts of ancient times, transmitting traditional healing knowledge to the present day." --Mr. Parawat Poungpiam Managing Director, Thai Massage School Shivagakomarpaj ("Old Medicine Hospital")"I am happy that this system of Traditional Thai Massage developed by my father is in the hands of the new generation, and is being carried forward in the West."--Ajahn Dr. Wasan Chaichakan Traditional Thai Medicine Doctor Director, Thai Massage School Shivagakomarpaj ("Old Medicine Hospital")
