What is Thai acupressure?
It is an ancient Thai medical practice used to treat most human ailments by applying pressure on potent acupressure points and therapy lines. The practitioner uses his thumbs, hands, elbows, and knees to work on the energy channels and therapy points of his client's body.
This book presents the basic teaching of Thai acupressure - the use of readymade point combinations to treat orthopedic ailments. Each treatment routine is based on a set combination of points that treats a specific disorder. Thai acupressure is unknown among most westerners, even those that are familiar with Thai general massage. Unlike general Thai massage for the whole body, Thai medical acupressure routines are used to treat specific orthopedic pains. These are highly effective treatment routines that are also extremely simple to use.
