An authentic guide to Thai yoga massage, a unique therapy that combines stretching, breath work, assisted yoga postures, and pressure point therapy. • Includes more than 80 illustrations, 30 charts, and a complete series of postures for a two-hour full-body massage. • Author Kam Thye Chow has taught massage in Thailand and throughout Europe and North America. Until recently Thai yoga massage was virtually unknown in the West. It has its roots in both the ancient healing traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Buddhism. In this unique practice, the therapist gives a full-body massage that combines palming and thumbing along the Thai energy lines and pressure points with gentle stretching, movement, and breath work reminiscent of tai chi. Using his or her own hands, feet, arms, and legs, the practitioner gently guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures, creating a harmonious and therapeutic “dance” that leads to greater physical awareness, grace, and spiritual energy. In this comprehensive guide for practitioners, Kam Thye Chow leads readers through every aspect of this dance--from its history and philosophy to a detailed presentation of a complete Thai yoga massage session. This important reference includes more than 80 illustrated postures, 30 charts and drawings, and a complete series of postures for a two-hour full-body massage that focuses attention on both the upper and lower body, which receive equal stress in the Western lifestyle. Information on contraindications, anatomy, and physiology integrates Western medical knowledge and theory with this ancient tradition. Massage therapists, physical therapists, nurses, and other medical professionals will find Thai Yoga Massage an important and innovative complement to their practice.

  • Excellent source of beginning information for anyone interested in learning this amazing conjunctive massage technique. I thoroughly enjoyed watching Mr Chow work on his client...

  • The book is pretty good, the cd is o.k. Most of the information in the book is not on the c.d., which was dissapointing. One this is to read it and another is to have someone show it. The book is clear and to the point, which is a plus. It's great for someone who is starting to learn about the poses and the energy lines.

  • Well done as a teaching tool/

  • Excellent book with many pictures to follow.

  • I'm a massage therapist thinking about taking a Thai-Yoga massage class to add to my modalities. I thought I'd buy this book/DVD set and try it out before I invested the considerable time and money into taking a class. After having reviewed the book and and DVD all I can say is ...WOW. The DVD is great for learniong a basic routine and the book supports it well. The info is presented in a clear and concise manner. The price on this set is lower than most other books and/or DVD out there and and is filled with lots of great info. I would highly recommend this to anyone considering learning this great modality to use with friends and family.

  • great accompaniment to the hands on course

  • AWESOME

  • Finally a book that lives up to the title.

    Nicely written, stays w/in the scope of the book - clear photographs included.

    Good primer on the subject.
