"I found this book to be well-written, easy to understand and follow, and of interest to those practitioners who may wish to expand their practice, as well as those individuals wishing to become a client of a Thai Yoga pratitioner." (Bonnie Cehovet, Angelfire, Aug 2006)

Thai Yoga Therapy for Your Body Type presents a thorough and practical exploration of this healing practice. It is highly recommended for all consumer health information collections, particularly those with a focus on complementary and alternative medicine. (Susan Murray, Consumer Health Information Service, Toronto Reference Library, Toronto, Canada)


A form of Thai Yoga Massage that focuses on the three Ayurvedic body types

• Explains how to determine a person’s Ayurvedic body type and provides hands-on techniques for working with them

• Brings the practices presented in Thai Yoga Massage to a new customized level of therapeutic healing

The traditional healing arts of Ayurveda and Thai Yoga Massage have a deep and integrated relationship that provides an unparalleled modality for restoring body, mind, and spirit. Although it originated in India, over the centuries Ayurveda has been assimilated into the predominant Thai culture and has evolved into a distinctive folk medicine. With the growing popularity of Ayurveda and Thai Yoga Massage, there is a renewed interest in reuniting these practices into a powerful therapeutic alliance.

Thai Yoga Therapy for Your Body Type bridges the practice of Thai Yoga Massage with its ancient Ayurvedic roots to offer a complete and holistic healing modality. The authors first explain in detail the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and then recommend daily practices for each of the three main body types of vata, pitta, and kapha. Practitioners learn how to customize their work with the appropriate massage approach, recommended yoga asanas, breathing techniques, and diet and lifestyle tips. More than 50 illustrated, full-body Thai Yoga Massage postures are presented as well as a massage flow for each body type. The authors indicate the Ayurvedic benefits of each posture and detail any precautions that should be followed in this dynamic practice of transformative healing.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not true to Thai tradition 3. Januar 2009
Von Della M French - Veröffentlicht auf
It is unfortunate that this book attempts to portray traditional nuad boran (Thai massage) as being inextricably woven into the Ayurvedic medicine of current day India. This is simply not true. Traditional Thai massage developed within a unique system of medicine indigenous to, and practiced only in, Thailand.

While there is reason to believe that ancient Ayurvedic medicine influenced early Thai medicine, it is also clear that the Thai traditional medicine system incorporated aspects of early Buddhist medicine as well as indigenous Thai beliefs. The Thai medicine system utilizes native medicinal plants, many of which are not used in India, and the way in which diagnoses (doshas) are carried out in Thailand in order to treat illnesses is different than the way it is done in current day Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Mr Chow, with this book, misrepresents traditional Thai massage and Thai medicine, and instead transmits a mishmash of Sanskrit terms and Ayurvedic concepts to his students and to the general public, claiming that they are Thai when they clearly are not.

Mr. Chow has misrepresented Thai massage at other times in his courses and books. The basic sequence that he and his "Lotus Palm" students teach, for example, begins in seated position, but this is not the way Thai massage is practiced in Thailand, nor does it represent the way that Thai massage has evolved over the years. Beginning at the feet in supine position is one of the most integral and important aspects of a Thai therapy session, since it allows the therapist to remove blockages in a systematically holistic way, beginning with the feet, onward to the lower and upper torsos, and eventually finishing with the head. Chow's own teacher, the late Asokananda, was continually upset because of the way Chow performed and taught Thai massage over the years.

In this book and others, Chow misrepresents Thai tradition in that he teaches Sanskrit terminology, mantras and other Ayurvedic concepts and associates them with Thai massage. Why claim, for example, that the traditional gesture one makes with hands clasped together before and after a Thai massage is called a "namaskar" (a Sanskrit term), when it is actually called a "wai" or "wai khru" in Thai language? Why teach Sanskrit mantras when there are traditional Thai supplications that fall wholly within Thai tradition? Chow must know these things, yet he deliberately chooses to misrepresent Thai tradition by using alien terms and incorporating foreign elements into his "Lotus Palm method." To some, this is nothing short of insulting to Thai tradition, to Thai culture, and to those of us who wish to dignify traditional Thai healing arts.

Simply put, this book contains false and misleading information. Don't buy it if you expect to learn about traditional Thai massage.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thai Yoga Therapy for Your Body Type: An Ayurvedic Tradition 18. Juli 2006
Von Michael Shandler - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a terrific book and groundbreaking. To my knowledge, it's the first time Ayurveda and Thai Yoga have been connected and revealed to have the same roots. It is both a course in the principles of Ayurveda and a course in Thai yoga massage and it brings them together to create a wonderfully synergistic and flexible therapeutic modality, easily adaptable to various constitutional types. Anyone who learns this system is enriching herself and raising her healing potentiality immensely. As both a student and teacher of Ayurveda and Thai Yoga, I find this book easy to understand and, most importantly from a practioner's point-of- view, highly practical. Thanks, Kam Thye and Emily!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Truly A Wonderful Book 28. September 2006
Von Shai Plonski - Veröffentlicht auf
For anyone who is familiar with the teachings of Kam Thye Chow and the Lotus Palm School and who believe in the evolution of Thai Yoga Massage as truly one of the best things you can do for both you the massage therapist, and the client you will love this book.

This book opens doors for Thai Yoga Massage to the yoga, ayurveda and general community because it grounds the practice in easy to understand yet deeply penetrating and time honored principles of Asian/Indian medicine. Simply put it inspires and teaches you how to give incredible Thai Yoga Massage and further shows your clients how they can take all the wonderful benefits and incorporate them into their everyday life.

It has made a very noticiable difference in my practice, because it gives me a strong foundation to understand why I choose to use certain postures with certain clients, and why I put some aside. It has helped me to channel my intention and energy in such a way that at the end of the massage my clients will relate to me how they have benefited from the experience, and it almost matches word for word the thoughts in my head for what I was hoping to accomplish with my session.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Thai Massage, and when you combine this with Kam Thye's first book that relates to Thai Massage in a more classical sense, you start to have a more complete picture of the vision that Thai Massage is a complete wellness system.
