Editorial Reviews

This 2-disc DVD set by acclaimed instructor Chuck Duff shows in detail a 2.5 hour therapeutic Thai massage treatment. The fourth title in the Thai Bodywork DVD Series, this DVD integrates aspects of Northern, Southern, Royal and Jap Sen (nerve touch) styles, with extensive anatomical and energetic background. Each technique is explained carefully, and supported with closeups and animations showing the energy lines and points used. This DVD corresponds to the Level 2 Thai Massage training at Chuck's School, ThaiBodywork School of Thai Massage.

Chuck's teaching emphasizes body mechanics, using core energy and sensitivity to the body's language, and places each technique in context as to its relationship to Sen lines, effects on specific muscles and pain conditions. The beautiful production values in this exquisitely produced DVD bring Chuck Duff's expert therapeutic insights to life.

While Thai yoga massage has been in existence for hundreds of years, its therapeutic application has been somewhat opaque to the student, due to a lack of written materials and a tradition of oral teachings. Also, due to the fact that Thailand has no tradition of research in anatomy or dissection, only recently have schools begun to teach Thai techniques in terms of Western anatomy.

Chuck Duff is on the faculty of Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and founded Thai Bodywork School in Evanston, IL in 2001. Chuck, who has taught over 1,000 practitioners, has based his career on the treatment of pain and has systematically studied the relationship of ancient Thai techniques to western clinical approaches. He created Clinical Thai Bodywork (CTB) as an outgrowth of his own very successful practice and research. CTB combines the techniques of Traditional Thai yoga with the insights of myofascial trigger point therapy, osteopathic principles and acupoints, and is a highly effective treatment for pain and dysfunction.

This video presents the basic ideas of CTB in the context of a 2.5 hour Thai massage sequence. The sequence can be performed intact, or specific segments can be added to a session where appropriate. The DVD is not a replacement for proper training in Thai bodywork, which is a sophisticated healing art that requires personal instruction with a qualified teacher.
