Description

HEALTH / In the unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage—based on yoga, ayurveda, and the martial arts—the practitioner uses his or her own hands, feet, arms, and legs to gently guide the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy pathways and pressure points, known in the Thai tradition as sen lines and in ayurveda as marma points. Providing a way to expand one’s Thai Yoga Massage practice, this book includes step-by-step photos and guidelines for an advanced Thai Yoga Massage series of more than 50 postures as well as successful treatment plans for 8 common ailments: stress, back pain, stiff neck and sore shoulders, arm and hand exhaustion, headaches, constipation, fibromyalgia, and anxiety/depression. Each treatment plan offers a customized one-hour Thai Yoga Massage posture flow specific to that ailment along with ayurvedic and yoga recommendations for continued healing and prevention after the massage session. This comprehensive guide also illustrates the exact location of the sen lines and marma points, detailing their therapeutic indications and connections to ayurveda and the five kosha bodies, as well as explaining how to incorporate them into sessions for deeper healing. KAM THYE CHOW, one of the first Thai Yoga Massage practitioners in North America, has taught Thai massage in Thailand and throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States. The author of Thai Yoga Massage and Thai Yoga Therapy for Your Body Type, he is the founder of the Lotus Palm School in Montreal. Kam Thye Chow lives in Montreal.
