The Thai Massage Manual
by Maria Mercati
The Thai Massage Manual: Natural Therapy for Flexibility, Relaxation and Energy Balance. Explore the powerful secrets of Thai massage--a vigorous technique that will enhance your health, happiness, and wholeness, and create a fresh, stimulating, giving-receiving relationship between you and your partner.
Like other forms of massage, you employ a flowing sequence of stretches, but instead of using only your fingers, pressure is applied with thumbs, palms, elbows, knees, and feet. It has been called "yoga in action," with its emphasis on relaxing your mind, restoring your energy, and conditioning your body.
Full-color photographs of every move match still shots with superimposed artwork that indicates the directions of the movements you make. Each technique is clearly explained and its benefits detailed. More than most massage techniques, Thai massage enhances the bond between partners, with its unity of mind and body, and its harmony of body and body.
