Thai massage has a long tradition of walking techniques, as do many other cultures. These techniques can be practiced without elaborate equipment such as ropes, bars or specially made treatment rooms. If the practitioner is developing balance, a simple object like a chair is sufficient to help maintain safe balance while on the client. We teach the student to be able to do this work with as little mechanical assistance as possible.
HandsFree Thai(tm) is an excellent way for the practitioner to safely work with athletes and other clients who require deeper pressure without endangering the hands, wrists and shoulders. As in all of our courses, we maintain a strong therapeutic focus in our teaching, guiding the student in how to work with specific issues of pain or dysfunction. We employ the principles of Clinical Thai Bodywork to teach the student patterns of pain and its origins while using HandsFree techniques.
Chuck Duff, Certified Instructor, is the producer and chief instructor in the highly regarded Thai Bodywork DVD Series, including Thai Massage: The Northern Style and Thai Massage: An Introduction for Mat and Table.

The only thing I wished was different as I watched the video was that the person Chuck was working on was a larger person. It would have been nice to see how these techniques worked when the practitioner is smaller than the client or less flexible. Having said that, though, I appreciated that the student model was used in cases where it wasn't possible to show the technique on the original model. I wrote to Mr. Duff and he did explain that in the HandsFree Thai class he offers, dealing with size differences is addressed more completely. I highly recommend this video.

I can highly recommend this DVD!
I was delighted to find a product focussing on hands free massage. I love how the spirit of Thai massage shines through in this instruction based dvd. Great work.
Although I can not perform all the moves there is so much to choose from. I can now practice Thai massage again, without hurting my own body.
I would highly recommend this product.
