Summary
If you want to learn something, learn from the best. If you want to learn authentic Thai massage, hands down the top recognized master outside of Thailand is Dr. Anthony James, CMT, DPM, ND, MDAM, SMOKH. His professional development and certification programs have set the standards in the U.S. In this comprehensive video, 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, 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 step-by-step through the therapeutic techniques comprising a complete session. Throughout, he 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), Dr. James 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.
