Book Description
Thai massage is an increasingly popular healing modality, and many American and European massage schools offer at least introductory, if not more, courses to their students these days. Drawing from Thai history, cultural studies, Buddhist religion, and yogic practices, as well as a modern understanding of anatomy and physiology, this book finally bridges the gap between the theory and practice of Thai massage.
This book is unique, in that it presents this form of bodywork as it is understood in Thailand—as a therapeutic medical science. For the first time, the history, spiritual traditions, and ethical codes of Thai medicine are presented in full alongside the most detailed analysis of each particular step in the Thai massage routine. Examples of therapeutic routines to treat specific disorders are discussed; a complete section is dedicated on the main energy meridians and diagrams of acupressure points.

This book is written in an engaging, informal style, with numerous photographs and diagrams that illustrate the techniques used.

Book Description
A uniquely relaxing yet energizing way to achieve balance and healing.

Traditional Thai massage is a dynamic yet comparatively little-known form of bodywork that combines elements of acupressure, stretching, reflexology, the application of herbal compresses, prayer, and meditation. This therapy has benefits for anyone-young or old, active or inactive, healthy or not. Sometimes called "lazy man's yoga," it stretches the muscles, increases the joints' range of motion, and balances the flow of energy throughout the body to promote healing and well-being.

Thai Massage provides fully illustrated, step-by-step instructions that enable the reader to use this integrative and interactive therapy (with a partner) at home. It also explains the history and philosophy behind the techniques and discusses their connections with Buddhist thought and practice, yoga, Ayurveda, the body's energy lines, and acupressure. It is a complete guide to an ancient practice that benefits body, mind, and spirit.

Book Description
This is an illustrated guide to a powerful ancient massage therapy, combining breathwork, acupressure, gentle stretching and applied yoga to promote physical and spiritual health and well-being. From Thai origins, and with Indian influences, Thai yoga massage unites the therapeutic physical benefits of massage with the spiritual aspects of meditation and yoga. It is based on the philosophy of an energy line system in our body through which our life force (prana) flows. Blockages in this life force can cause aches, pain and disease on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. This book explains the background to this increasingly popular therapy and leads the reader through a session - from using chanting and visualization in preparing to give or receive a massage to step-by-step instructions on all the important massage techniques and postures. The author, Kira Balaskas, learnt Thai yoga massage in a hill tribe village in northern Thailand and then practiced in an ashram at the foot of the Himalayas.


A Reader Review
A great resource for Thai Massage Therapists, December 1, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA United States
I first saw Kira demonstrate majority of the Thai Massage moves in Asokananda's advanced Thai Massage Book years ago (I use Asokananda's book extensively as reference!), and I am so happy to see her publish her own book. It is well laid out, excellently photographed, and described. She goes through a basic routine, describing the moves and she also has the actual charts for the sen lines and chakras as illustrated by Kam Thye Chow, who worked alongside Asokananda, and who has his own excellent Thai-Yoga book, which I also highly recommend!

Reader Reviews
quality ph0tos, clear anatomical descriptions, solid presenta, June 28, 1999
Reviewer: baraksa@netvision.net.il from Tel Aviv, Israel
This is a quality book that is a good introduction to the marvelous field of Thai Massage. The photos are clear and the descriptions of technique are competent. There are aspects that are lacking though that are extremely well covered in another book entitled, 'Thai Massage: A Traditional Medical Technique'by Dr. Richard Gold and published by Churchill Livingstone. This book presents Thai Massage as a primary component of an entire traditional medical system. The theories and history of Thai Medicine are covered and the development of the medicine in the context of Buddhist culture is very well presented.This book also has excellent photos and clear and easy to follow descriptions. Thai Massage is a unique style of bodywork that will see rapid growth in the West as it becomes better known.These books will certainly help that growth.

A Great Book, April 1, 1999
Reviewer: Antiqueham@aol.com from San Diego, CA USA
This is the first book I have found (including a search in Thailand) that tells all about Thai Traditional Massage. How, Where, Why and To What Extent (very, very important) This book will open the wonders of Thai Trad. to you.

A Reader Review
Dr. Gold captures the essence of Thai Massage, November 18, 1999
Reviewer: Joel Sheposh (sheposh@uswest.net) from Scottsdale, AZ
Dr. Gold, in his book on traditional Thai Massage, has given the massage community hands-on guidance in the use of Thai Massage. This is more than a step-by-step workbook on Thai Massage. Yes, it has clear and rich photography and esay-to-follow instructions. It also includes the theory of Thai medicine, indications and contraindications, and a discussion of the sen (energy pathway). This book should be required reading for anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of Thai Massage.
