Thai Massage, Sacred Bodywork is a complete guide to an ancient practice that benefits body, mind, and spirit.
Interest in Thai massage has been growing rapidly. This is no surprise given its unique multifaceted approach to the body. Thai massage combines acupressure, stretching, reflexology, assisted yoga postures, herbal compresses, prayer and meditation. It benefits everyone. Sometimes called the “lazy person’s yoga”, Thai massage stretches and relaxes the muscles, increases the joints’ range of motion, and balances energy flow throughout the body.

The book explains the historical and philosophical background of Thai massage as well as its religious origins. Throughout the book, Ananda always reminds us of the deeper meaning of this sacred modality—compassion in action. A must for all those interested in the healing arts.
