The Ultimate Thai Video: Basic Mat Techniques DVD

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 comprehensive DVD, Aachan ("Master") James lays the foundation for a clear understanding of Thai massage and the spiritual roots and perspectives that have endured for thousands of years. Dr. James discusses benefits and contraindications, the 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 then walks you through step-by-step therapeutic techniques, comprising a complete session.

Dr. James 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. Beginning with Puja (affirmation), he demonstrates techniques in the traditional Five Attitudes/Postures: Supine, Side Lying, Prone, Abdomen and Leg Stretching, and Seated. Includes 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. 1 hour, 48 minutes
