If you want to learn authentic Thai massage, learn from the top recognized master outside of Thailand, Dr. Anthony James, CMT, ND, MDAM. His professional development and certification programs have set the standards in the US. In this DVD, he walks you step-by-step though a demonstration of a complete basic routine adapted for the table.

Beginning with Puja (affirmation), Dr. James demonstrates techniques in the traditional Five Attitudes/Postures: Supine, Side Lying, Prone, Abdomen and Leg Stretching, and Seated. It features over 19 basic asanas (or therapeutic postures). Techniques include gentle rocking; deep stretching; striking; kneading; pinching and rolling; pulling, rotations, and rhythmic compression with thumbs, palms, elbows, forearms, knees, and feet. For a solid understanding of Thai massage, Dr. James discusses benefits and contraindications, origins of Thai massage, different styles (the Southern Royal Method, Northern Style, and Buddhai Sawan School), Ayurvedic anatomy (the primary Chakras and Sen lines), client assessment, and room set-up. He also addresses balance vs. structural corrections; steps emulating energy flow; 10 key points for balance; working on position, attitude, relationship, and transition; and, breath, emphasis, and pressure. 1 hour, 28 minutes
