What is this eBook about?

This work is a practical, real-life guide about the art, actual practice, and true spirit of Traditional Thai Massage.

It’s an in-depth, pragmatic, and no-nonsense eBook based on seven years of practicing Thai Massage professionally, and aimed at supporting, guiding, and empowering both new and seasoned Thai Massage therapists.

We cover the Thai Massage art itself – including its place within the broader realm of the traditional Thai Healing Arts – we talk about the clients, the therapist, the sessions, methods and techniques, and therapy aspects. Furthermore, we extensively discuss the spiritual characteristics and spirit in which Thai Massage is or should be given.

As a supplement, we have also included maps/diagrams of each of the ten Thai Sib Sen energy lines with their respective trajectories and therapeutic indications.
