About this book

Thai Massage is the touch that enhances health, happiness, and wholeness--and with more than 150 expertly demonstrated sequences unfolding on these pages, everyone can enjoy its benefits.Sometimes called "yoga in action," Thai massage has worked its relaxing wonders for more than 1,000 years. Explore its secrets with a detailed program that includes ten complete lessons, each concentrating on a particular part of the body. Like other forms of massage, it employs a flowing sequence of stretches, but instead of using only your fingers, pressure is applied with the thumbs, palms, elbows, knees, and feet. Full-color photographs of every move match still shots with superimposed artwork that indicate the direction of the movements. Each technique is clearly explained and its benefits--from improved flexibility to increased vitality--detailed."All of the techniques are shown in sharp color photographs that are pleasing to the eye. Descriptions of the techniques are clear."--Massage Therapy Journal.

Reader's Thoughts


Was very helpful for continuing education. And additional training. Thai is so interactive and involves flexibility. Energy work was very interesting

Nicky Abell-Francis

this was our main manual for our thai course produced by our teacher maria mercati. Wonderful pictures clear, concise and large with key muscles, worked when treating. Simple history & origins of thai. Excellent for the beginner.

A well written book with great pictures. It's one of the first that I reach for when I need to reference a Thai Massage posture.
