Salt Lake City, UT – Dr. Anthony James is back again. The top recognized Thai Yoga master outside of Thailand, James, C.M.T., D.P.M., N.D., M.D.A.M., S.M.O.K.H., has set the professional standards and certifications programs in the U.S. He’s paired once more with Aesthetic VideoSource to bring you a new series on Thai acupressure facial and Thai reflexology balancing treatments for the hands and feet.
In Aesthetic VideoSource’s new Thai Acupressure Massage: Feet, Hands & Face instructional DVDs, James shows how to provide these adaptable treatments on a traditional Thai mat and on a massage table. In each DVD, James demonstrates a complete acupressure facial and treatments for the extremities, so you can provide these procedures per your treatment room setting. James also discusses the origins of these techniques; chakras, lom and marma points, and sen lines; benefits and contraindications; and how to market these offerings.
With the facial, you can help balance energy, bring a nurturing awareness to the client and enhance circulation, including arterial/venous and lymphatic. It can be provided as a complex decongestive therapy for lymphatic edema, swelling and fluid retention around the neck, head and face. Thai acupressure facial also reduces areas of low oxygen and spasm. For example, it is useful in addressing such issues as TMJ.
The reflexology treatments likewise offer rejuvenating benefits from increased circulation. The treatments will help correct dehydration, edema, swelling of the joints and lack of motion. The reflexology treatments are also deeply relaxing and nurturing. The other benefit of reflexology is the mapped correlations to other parts of the body, so you balance the organs, promote circulation and balance the chakras and energy lines throughout by just working the hands and feet. You can get these benefits just working the hands alone, or the feet alone, or together.
“A big selling point is that Thai acupressure facial helps tone and restructure the face, providing a nonsurgical, noninvasive face-lift,” says James. “And, of course, your clients will appreciate these deeply relaxing treatments.”
“Dr. James’s life focus is teaching Thai massage,” says Shirley Erickson Gorospe, president of Aesthetic VideoSource. “He is an amazing teacher who explains and demonstrates each technique so that you can easily grasp the concepts and repeat them.”
James, the only western Master Instructor to be recognized by the Royal Thai government and recipient of the “Friend of Thailand” Award, has taught and certified more than 6,000 practitioners since 1984, including many well-known teachers established today. He is the founder of the famous SomaVeda™ Institute, a residential training facility in Florida, home to The Thai Yoga Center and the International Thai Therapists Association (ITTA), and host to the National Thai Yoga, Massage and Bodywork Certification Board (NTYMBCB) examinations. He has authored various publications, including the first Thai massage book in English. The list of James’ credentials goes on.
