It has become the nucleus of a new lifestyle and right livelihood for the thousands of US and Thai students, practitioners and teachers. Indigenous, Traditional Thai Massage (Indigenous Thai Yoga Therapy), also called “Ryksaa Thang Nuad Phaen Boran Thai” or the “ancient Chirothesia (Yoga Therapy) or hands-on healing” of Thailand, is born of a long tradition.

This unique system of indigenous, traditional, natural medicine and Yoga therapy finds it’s ancient roots first in the traditions of classical Ayurveda as far back as the 5th century BCE. Subsequently, the Vedic health and medical practices eventually became common practice in SE Asia.

Thai Yoga Therapy Role in Cancer Palliation

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), DPHC(h.c.), PhD, DOM, RAC, SMOKH Academic Dean SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center (SCNM).

The list of both clinical and anecdotal benefits and medicinal claims for Traditional Thai Medicine, Traditional Thai Massage and derivatives is quite long.  In one article I posted I listed over 40 clinically verifiable benefits  and an equal number of traditionally ascribing healing benefits. The challenge I am faced with today is that what is actually the practice or practices that when a benefit is claimed is actually the basis for the claim? More than this, what are the Thai Yoga Treatment Protocols That Work?

Thai Yoga Rocking into Dak Kha

Thai Yoga Rocking into Dak Kha

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), DPHC(h.c.), DOM, RAC, SMOKH Academic Dean SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center (SCNM).

Thai Yoga Rocking into Dak Kha

The Southern method Vinyasa (SomaVeda® Ayurvedic Thai Yoga: Level Two) offers the Thai Yoga practitioner a gold mine of breakouts and emphasis which can be accessed to bring relief and increase well being for an individual client. The Vinyasa (Yoga Therapy Flow) are divided up into five major attitudes such as the Supine Position, Side Lying Position, Prone Positio, Second Supine (Abdominal/ Leg Stretching) Position and Seated position.

Thai Yoga Rocking into Dak Kha (Inward Bent Knee/ Hurdlers Stretch) is a transition from the Sao Nong (Raised Bent Knee) into the Inward Bent Knee posture in the Supine position… The reason I want to bring attention to this transition is the Rocking position is what we call a Master Release position. My definition of a Master Release position is any position or Asana that when done by it’s self long enough will effect a full body release and other benefits.

SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Offers Relief For Headaches and Migraines

Aachan, Prof. Dr. Anthony B. James

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), DPHC(h.c.), DOM, RAC, SMOKH Academic Dean SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center (SCNM).

Lets address the features of Headaches including,  Chronic Tension Headaches, Migraine Headaches, Stress and Tension Headaches and headache type syndromes which may be mental, emotional and or energetic in origin and how Indigenous Traditional Therapeutic approaches. Specifically how SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Offers Relief for Headaches and Migraines.

“Foolish is the doctor who despises the knowledge of the ancients”

  Hippocrates

Where do we find this knowledge of the ancients?

Much wisdom of the ancients has been passed down through countless generations in the religious, wisdom and medicine teachings of indigenous and traditional native cultures.

Chronic Tension Headache
Thai Yoga offers relief from Headaches

Many different words are used to describe and define the diagnosis of what we generally refer to as “Headache Disorders“. Wikipedia’s International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD)(1) demonstrates clearly that Headache Disorder is more appropriately considered a syndrome as there are many types of headache classification and no singular set of symptoms and or causes. According to the ICHD there are at least fourteen different classifications which contains explicit diagnostic criteria.  In my opinion a Headache Disorder is a non-specific term for medical problems affecting the head, neck and or shoulder region.

In conventional/ western medicine most headaches and headache disorders are treated with prescription and OTC chemical drugs such as Ibuprofen and Elavil (Amitriptyline- an antidepressent!) not only do these drugs burden the headache sufferer with additional unwanted effects, but in clinical trials have been found to not be as effective. In fact Thai Yoga Offers Relief for Headaches and Migraines as a therapy that are significantly more effective with none of the unwanted side effects associated with drug based therapies.(34)

Fibromyalgia and Thai Yoga

By Anthony B. James DNM(P), ND(T), MD(AM), DPHC(h.c.), DOM, RAC, SMOKH Academic Dean SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and Thai Yoga Center (SCNM).

I want to say that there is much evidence to demonstrate that Fibromyalgia and Thai Yoga are made for each other. This is in two different context which I will elaborate more in the body of this article. First, if there is such a thing and Second even if there is no such thing as “Fibromyalgia” then Thai Yoga (Thai Traditional Massage) may be a perfect solution to the aggregate of symptoms which this shot gun term refers to. Thai Traditional Massage (Thai Yoga) offers solutions that emphasize the whole person, not just their physical pain.
