How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

YaNaKa & Push The Foot

How to fix Weak Posterior Chain issues with SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy

by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James

Your SomaVeda® Thai Yoga client still has hamstring, hip and or low back pain after sessions or SomaVeda® Therapeutic Day program!

A review and commentary by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine

The reason may be a Weak Posterior Chain!

What is Weak Posterior Chain?

A weak Posterior chain is the structure and function of the posterior thighs (hamstrings), Gluts and Sacral/ Low Back. They are under developed, injured, weak and as a result uncoordinated and worse subject to atrophy from lack of use. When I say lack of use, I mean it in every way. Too much sitting, not enough range of motion and insufficient load bearing exercise to build and maintain healthy muscle and soft tissue including connective tissue… Ligaments and tendons etc. This region may be ischemic and low in circulating oxygen which may affect the structure and function of the nerves and soft tissue creating an inclination to spasm and further reducing accessible range of motion. Hard to do Yoga when the muscles and tissues themselves are working hard even at rest to do the opposite!

 

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

What does this mean and how to improve on long term issues either with or after a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga program? Rome was not built in a day! As beneficial as a full seven day+ SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol or program is, it is NOT Magic! Many chronic pain issues develop over many years and are further complicated with both traumatic history of accidents and injuries, accumulated over time. Complicated with malnutrition and toxicities, years of inactivity and resulting atrophy, energy imbalances and more. We do eventually want to address all of these as they impact the specific clients pain and well being moving them towards recovery. However, today I want to bring attention to what the clients can and does have to do on their own behalf! The SomaVeda® Thai Yoga technique I am focusing on today is the SOmaVedar Thai Yoga “YaNaKa” or “Push The Leg”. YaNaKa is the essential Thai Yoga technique, representing a three joint traction and decompression technique. YaNaKa emphasizes the posterial leg lines or Thai Sen lines above the knee to the PSIS pelvis. The three joint’s affected are the ankle, knee and pelvis. This one of the very few techniques in any physical therapy system that can traction and decompress the knee… very important and helpful if there is inflammation , extra fluid or swelling in the knee.

Watch the 159 Different YaNaKa & Push The Leg video to see the “Hands-On” Chirothesia corrections we have in our SomaVeda® kit.

We can do amazing work. The issue always comes back to what is the patient/ client doing between sessions at home? How can the client/ patient comply with their recovery process addressing some of the true causes for their “Weak Posterior Chain” issues?

What the client themselves does in support of their own progress towards either reduced pain, pain free living and or free and easy range of motion is vital. Even after a full program and any where from 9 to 12 contact hours hands on… this pales in comparison to the twenty four/ seven lifestyle of the client for ether good or ill.

All pain clients have a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance! No matter what their diagnosis, “Vikruti” or elemental imbalance or body type. How? Why? One of the key indicators of a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance is IGNORANCE. Ignorance of how the client themselves created the origin of the pain, the injury, the atrophy, the chronic inflammation, the poor medical or therapeutic choices which may not only not helped but made the pain worse. This includes relegating responsibility for their healing and wellness to institutional and or corporate medico’s who simply proscribed various drugs, steroids, opiates etc. for “pain management”, but which in the long term did not prove helpful.

Yes, the clients need help, need therapeutic program and intervention. However, they also need guidance in self maintenance and home practices which will educate them in support of their personal compliance routines… Where the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Program ends , the clients self work and compliance with the therapist counseling and recommendations begins!

The SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (SomaVeda® Tool Assisted Energy Line Release) protocol extends the hands on Chirothesia or manual therapeutic hands on healing ministry with the use of adjuncts therapies and “tools”. One of the most important tools is to educate the client into what they can control, contribute and effectively do at home for themselves as the partner in the therapy.

Consider: Weak Posterior Chain?

More than these? Consider:

  • Lack of Isometric Strength
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture leading to injury
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • Rounded Shoulder
  • Tight Hips
  • Compromised Immune System
  • “Anerobic Lactic Threshold” and why it’s important.
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in Yoga practice, the gym, sports and or Martial Arts

It’s not enough to know the clients needs to do their “home work” and self care, they need proper and sustained, detailed guidance on what to do and how to do it.

Your not going to be with them at home, so we need a home study program that targets the issue. You the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner, Therapist, Minister or Physician do your amazing part. Refer your client (also yourself if your the one with the chronic pain!) to “Ground Control Program” for an amazing program.

Please take a moment to read this important sponsored message from “Ground Control” Program. 

Have you heard about Weak Posterior Chain?

Your Posterior Chain…

…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting

…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest

…support your internal organs

…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.

In other words, your posterior chain has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

Here I am at age 17, dressed out in my Gi, competing as a Black Belt in the Seishin Kai Jiu-Jitsu Competitions!

The solution? Train Like a Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt!

Most of you know that I hold Black Belt Rank is Martial Arts as well as equivilent in MA that do not use the belt system such as Thai Muay Boran and Krabri Krabong. Click Here to see my Martial Arts Bio… I also hold Black Belt Rank in Go Budo Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-Jitsu training is related to that of Judo but with a much wider variety of techniques and training methodalities. In fact, in my opinion Jiu-Jitsu training has the answer, the perfected solution to the “Weak Posterior Chain”. I have found an amazing 12 weak HOME STUDY/ HOME Practice Course which is helping thousands of athletes right now over come these physical limitations. Do not be intimidated by my reference to “Athletes”. Trust me when I say What Works for Athletes Will Work For You!

Take the challenge to restore the structure and function for your self or refer your clients using the link included below. If you need this link in an email, simply let me know and I can forward to you separately! Cheers, Aajahn Dr. James.

If the posterior chain get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE! for the “At-Home” Compliance and personal self help program.

So… If you experience…

low back pain

hip pain

stiffness

pain while walking or moving

lack or loss of range of motion in your Posterior Chain (Hamstrings, Gluts, Sacral/ Low Back area)

shortness of breath

You need to start undoing some of the damage done to your body and start helping the body to naturally heal itself.

 

Here are the best “At Home” strategies to Go from “Tight” to “Mobile, Strong & Supple”.

LearnThaiYoga Announces Up Dates OnLine Learning Platform June 2021!

LearnThaiYoga On-Line
Traditional Thai Yoga Therapy also known as Thai Traditional Massage is the fastest growing and most sought after healing modality in the world today. Of course, the best way to learn is in a live class with a Master Teacher or Thai “Aachan” such as at the Thai Yoga Center in Brooksville, Florida studying with Aachan Dr. Anthony B. James and or his trained and certified SomaVeda® Thai Yoga staff Khruu or Teachers.

You Asked for it! THAI YOGA ON-LINE!

However, if you can’t make it to a live SomaVeda® Thai Yoga class either because of scheduling or cost the next best thing is to learn from the Master Teacher at Home!
Now you can Learn SomaVeda® Thai Yoga at Home!
Don’t waste your time on lessons from untrained and un-certified and or non-authentic teachers?
Come to a genuine source!

  37. New Video Lessons on SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Vinyasa (Flows for various breakouts)!
And three more included classes!
It is good that our traditions have deep and ancient roots with elders and teachers who have lived the life of healers, traditional doctors and therapist for centuries, literally. They are our role models. We do not have to reinvent the wheel of success in what we do by ourselves. Only our current life situations and perhaps cultural considerations are unique. But what we are doing in life is not new or unique. We can learn from our elders and these lessons and qualities I am recommending you cultivate don’t originate with me personally but they are passed down to us by previous generations of healers who chose to practice true medicine as a way of life for their whole life!

How To Win In Court, Current Facts about Thai Yoga and Thai Massage Certification, Licensing and Legal Issues In Health Crises

How To Win In Court

Ajahn Dr. Anthony B. James Teaches Thai Traditional Medicine and Yoga Therapy

NAIC Legal Shield:

Step #One is to not be ignorant! As the courts like to say to the chagrin of many medical, allied medical and or complimentary health providers and ministers of any kind… “There is NO excuse to not know the law!”

I am going to walk you through some legal basics and depending on your starting place advanced. I stopped being surprised and amazed at how little healing arts practitioners do NOT KNOW about the law in general and in specific about what they base their and their families life and livelihood upon. I want to help is possible to sort it out and more than this at the end of this article to offer some concrete solutions to bring light into your legal darkness!

Be sure to read all the way through to the bottom and click the “How To Win In Court” image and link.

  • What’s a Thai Yoga and or Traditional Thai Massage certificate?
  • What’s a massage license?
  • How are they different?
  • When and where do you need them?
  • How do you get them?
  • What do you need to know to practice Thai Healing Arts legally in the US?

You will find all the answers right here! Be forewarned as the subject deserves a good answer this post is a long one and you may need to read it more than once.

Traditional and SomaVeda® Thai Yoga/ Traditional Thai Massage legal aspects

There are many therapists, especially in the US, who passionately argue for licensing. However this article  is not about opinions and preferences, but strictly about facts and the legal side of massage vs. Traditional Thai Yoga Massage/ Thai Yoga/ Traditional Thai Massage and spiritual/energetically based, religious therapeutics, healing arts in general.

Every practitioner of a religious therapeutic healing art needs to be clear and to know the legal basis for the art they are practicing.

We here at NAIC (Native American Indigenous Church Inc. Tribal Organization): Thai Yoga Center can not only answer the question but can provide a legal basis for you to practice anywhere!

Certification versus licensing

The first thing we need to understand is that there there is a difference between certification and licensing.

Certification Definition: the action or process of providing someone or something with an official document attesting to a status or level of achievement: a fundamental requirement for organic certification | the certification of teachers.an official document attesting to a status or level of achievement:graduates who want to gain industry-recognized certifications. – certifies all or part of the following:

  • You are qualified to practice Thai Yoga/ Traditional Thai Massage
  • You possess the necessary understandings (knowledge) and competencies (skills)
  • You have had a certain amount of training: i.e. minimum standards apply.

Certification is only about qualification, skills and training. It does not automatically give you the legal right to practice ANY healing art Thai or otherwise.

Licensing Definition:a permit from an authority to own or use something, do a particular thing, or carry on a trade (especially in alcoholic beverages): a gun license | [as modifier] : vehicle license fees.formal or official permission to do something: logging is permitted under license from the Forest Service Medical and or Allied Medical and or Massage License etc.

Many people believe incorrectly that you can only do healing work IF you are “Licensed” by the state!   First of all NOT TRUE! This is a myth often perpetuated by “Massage Therapist” and or State Massage Boards.  Massage is legally defined as “Rubbing for Money” regardless of alleged benefits. According to Massage organizations and State Massage Boards, Massage is apparently very dangerous and practitioners need to be restricted and licensed by the respective states! Please not all states have these wacky rules.

Thus a Massage License gives you the legal right to practice massage (Rubbing for Money), IF your jurisdiction has licensing laws (not all do). A license is generally issued by a legal entity like a state licensing board, for example. However, this Massage Therapy practice is defined strictly an has statutory scope of practice rules and conditions!

Let me reiterate that there are still some states which do not have licensing requirements for massage at all! Please note however, they may have local jurisdictional codes or rules by county, city etc. which may have the same effect as a massage ordinance.

Additionally, all those laws change frequently.

The Fly in the Legal Ointment!

If…

  • Certification means you are qualified to practice massage or any indigenous traditional healing art such as Thai Yoga or Traditional Thai Massage.
  • Licensing (if required) gives you the legal right to practice massage.

The issue is that Traditional Thai Yoga (SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapy) and / or Traditional Thai Massage is NOT Massage and or Massage Therapy as defined by law!

 

There are Special Rules for Thai Yoga Therapy and or Traditional Thai Massage

In the case of Thai Yoga there are special considerations to consider.  It depends on how massage and or bodywork is defined. Thai Yoga is quite different from massage and or massage therapy. It is an entirely different animal.  Thai Traditional Yoga Therapy (“Ryksaa Thang Nuad Phaen Boran Thai- Reussi Dotton“) is Classical Ayurveda from Thailand. It is the manipulative discipline of Thai Traditional Medicine, Thai Ayurveda (including Thai Traditional Physical Therapy TTPT/ Tok Sen/ Tit Tar and Thai Traditional Naturopathy), (“Marmacikitsa/ Kayachikitsa“). For a deep discussion on What Is Thai Yoga, please read my earlier post on the subject. What is Thai Yoga Part 1, What is Thai Yoga Part 2.

Consider State of Florida

Florida State Medical Board Exemptions

2)(f) Is a rabbi, priest, minister, or member of the clergy of any religious denomination or sect when engaging in activities which are within the scope of the performance of his or her regular or specialized ministerial duties and for which no separate charge is made, or when such activities are performed, with or without charge, for or under the auspices or sponsorship, individually or in conjunction with others, of an established and legally cognizable church, denomination, or sect, and when the person rendering service remains accountable to the established authority thereof.
State Medical Practice: Title XXXII chapter 458 “Medical Practice “Section 458.303 Provisions not applicable to other practitioner; exceptions, etc.  (e) Any person furnishing   medical assistance in case of an emergency.  (f) The domestic administration of recognized family remedies.  (g) The practice of the religious tenets of any church in this state.

and

Consider the massage definition of the state of Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Massage Law (If you want to read the entire law, click on the link)

Nothing in this section shall prevent or restrict the practice of a person who uses touch, words or directed movement to deepen awareness of patterns of movement in the body, or the affectation of the human energy system or acupoints or Qi meridians of the human body while engaged within the scope of practice of a profession with established standards and ethics, but such services shall not be designated or implied to be massage or massage therapy.

Such practices shall include, but not be limited to, the Feldenkrais Method; Reflexology; The Trager Approach; Ayurvedic Therapies, Rolf Structural Integration, Polarity or Polarity Therapy; Polarity Therapy Bodywork; Asian Bodywork Therapy that does not constitute massage as defined in this chapter; Acupressure; Jin Shin Do; Qi Gong; Tui Na; Shiatsu; Body-Mind Centering and Reiki. These exempt practitioners may use the terms ”bodywork”, ”bodyworker” and ”bodywork therapist” in their promotional literature.

In the first example if your a religious practitioner meeting the qualification required you not only do not have to have a license your expressing exempted from them!

In the Massachusetts example, under the secular rule you can imply an exception but it is not stated… furthermore as it is a secular law it can be changed at anytime!

Not only is this confusing it still does not answer the question about whether or not you need a license to practice Thai.

Maybe we are asking the wrong question. The question is NOT whether you need a license or not but under what legal basis can you practice regardless of having a license or not.

Because we are a Native Tribal and Indigenous Tribal Organization (Tribal Church- Faith Based Religious Organization) and Aboriginal community we have been researching this issue and question for years. Many bright legal minds and legal experts have weighed in on our legal rights to practice. The question of “Thai” comes from our community adopting Classical and traditional Ayurveda medicine of Thailand and Thai Yoga Therapy (Traditional Thai Massage) as an authentic traditional , spiritually based healing methods or systems suitable for our tribal organization and members to practice.

 

We pass this wisdom on to you now!

First thing, is if you define or call what you do Massage or Massage Therapy (rubbing on people for money) then GET A LICENSE!

Once you have that license follow the ethics and scope of practice, don’t cheat and don’t violate the restrictive scope of practice and you’ll be fine.

However, if you want to practice Thai Yoga/ Thai Massage legally in the US you don’t need a license but you do need a legal AUTHORIZATION! Remember the Florida Code and the exemptions I listed above? A religious exemption to practice is “on the books” in every state. There are conditions which determine if you personally meet the criteria for exemption however, we can show you the in’s and outs of this process.

NO Loopholes! Don’t put your self and your family at risk by working under loopholes and “under the table” etc. Come out into the light and develop your healing practice and career in the light.

Time to make the shift to NAIC Legal Shield!
Native American Indigenous Church

SomaVeda.Com

If you practice any form of alternative, complimentary and or spiritually based healing work and either do not have a license and or are practicing outside your mandated scope of practice you are at risk!  In order to continue your ability to practice Spiritually and or Energetically based Indigenous, Traditional, Natural and or Native Healing and Wellness Services, Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, Thai Yoga and or Thai Massage or related, you will need to become an active Member of NAIC according to your authorized scope of practice. Many states are actively passing laws to restrict all forms of energy, indigenous, traditional and or natural medicine and healing. Take the new Maryland Law HB 1156 as an example:
Establish a legal Basis for healing work
This type of abusive and unconstitutional law is being suggested and or implemented across the country!
NAIC Inc. is not legally responsible for any former students, practitioners and or teachers, non member activities for services rendered. You must have an active NAIC membership to qualify for legal protection under our authority.
Your previous training and certificates via THAI,  ITTA, Thai Yoga Center, Yoga Alliance, IAYT, YA, ABMP, AMTA, Clayton, NAMA, AAPNA etc. DO NOT provide you with the legal protections for all the healing work your able to do. However, they may qualify you for NAIC Tribal Org. membership.

The Elephant in the Room!

Of course the elephant in the room is your SCOPE of Practice! Even if you have a medical or allied medical license fro any particular state… Ask your self, Does this license give me the legal right to do what I actually do? What I mean by this is do you actually try to practice true medicine?Because if you do you may be in violation of many aspects of your license and subject to citation, violation and or criminal proceeding every day! Enforcement for violations of scope of practice is random and just because you have not been violated yet does not mean your safe or immune from citation, fines and or criminal procedures!
Lets consider the current legal climate and narrative of hysteria currently surrounding all healthcare practices, especially any form of traditional and or indigenous based complimentary or “alternative” medical or healing practices!
Here are some common areas well meaning but uninformed practitioners regularly run a foul of state medical and or massage boards:
  • Do you give health advice in your consultations or services?  Food, Eating, Nutrition, Supplements, Juicing, weight loss relating to any condition or health issue of any kind?
  • Do you assess, or make any specific recommendations for alleviating, reducing, improving, remediating, controlling, managing any diagnosed illness of any kind ever?
  • Do you recommend any treatments, sessions, programs or do any treatments, sessions, programs hands on for any specific and or diagnosed health or medical condition of any kind at any time?
  • Do you use any adjuncts, tools, mechanical aids, vibrations, light, sound, water, mechanical vibrators, electro-acupuncture devises of any kind ever?
  • Do you do ANY kind of psychological, emotional or mental health or wellness counseling on any kind? Including Tapping, EFT, AO Scan, ANy type of Frequency Body Scan or treatment, BET, TFT, Energy Psychology etc.?
  • Do you use or integrate ANY Native American Ritual, Sacrament, Ceremony, Any Herbs, Any Essential Oils and or any traditional indigenous medicine, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Nature Cure, Yoga Therapy, fitness recommendations into your healing, therapy or wellness services?
  • Are you subject to draconian and unreasonable State Health Department “Mandates, Suggested Guidelines” regarding your rights to practice or work at all? Mandates and Suggested Guidelines are not LAW. No Governor not Health Department can make or unilaterally pass ANY law. In fact it is a violation of their Oath of Office to do so! But what are your rights to practice or to engage in healing work or ministry?
Would you like to do or use any of the above now or in the future?
Here’s a few more questions:
Ask yourself:
  • Was your healing and natural medicine training apprentice style?
  • Did you learn your Thai Yoga or Thai Massage practice in Thailand and now want to practice legally in the US?
  • Was your training in Native American and or Indigenous Medicine?
  • Do you have a current license but are having issues with your full scope of practice?
  • Do you practice Ayurveda, Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Thai Yoga and or Thai Massage, Indigenous Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupressure, Shiatsu?
  • Do you practice Reiki, Pranic healing, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Spiritual Massage, Crystal healing?
  • Do you counsel and or give advise on nutrition, food, diet, eating lifestyle, supplementation, nutrients or other regimen to enhance wellness or address illness?
  • Do you practice detoxification programs such as Pancha Karma?
  • Do you practice emotional healing, energy psychology, traditional naturopathy, holistic psychology or psychotherapy?
  • Want to get out of the Massage Therapy licensing/ Taxed therapy Gerbil wheel?
  • Do you use or recommend Herbs, sacrament and or unconventional herbal therapies for healing?
  • Need legal protection and freedom from expense liability insurance issues?
  • Do you practice Homeopathy, Radionics, Rife or other any energy based healing?
  • Do you carry or use Native American Sacrament, Birds of Prey feathers in your healing work for your self or for others?
  • Do you believe healing, therapy and wellness is a Human Right, as well as a constitutional right?
  • Are you concerned about laws and governmental authorities limiting you and your families access to health care?
  • Are you concerned about mandatory Vaccination issues for yourself or your children?
  • Have you been hiding your healing work? Keeping it on the “Down Low”, avoiding marketing or advertising because of fear?
  • Are you subject to draconian and unreasonable State Health Department “Mandates, Suggested Guidelines” regarding your rights to practice or work at all? Mandates and Suggested Guidelines are not LAW. No Governor not Health Department can make or unilaterally pass ANY law. In fact it is a violation of their Oath of Office to do so! But what are your rights to practice or to engage in healing work or ministry?

If any of the above is true…

Well, you should know the answer by now! We can help you!

Native American Church Memberships
Question? What if I have a Massage, Massage Therapy or other License? Doesn’t that protect me?

 

ONACS Provides Legal Basis for Healing Ministry
NO!

State and National Massage Therapy Scope of Legal Practice do NOT include many CAM practices and therapies such as Ayurveda, Pancha Karma, Detox Programs, Assessments, Psychological and Emotional Therapies, Thai Yoga, Thai Massage, Yoga Therapy, Spiritually based Massage, Food, Eating and Supplement strategies, personal and spiritually based Psychological Counseling etc. In fact they may specifically prohibit you from doing them! (Read your Scope of Practice State Massage Law!) More than this, if your practicing out side your Legal Scope of Practice as defined in your particular state your Liability Insurance is not covering these practices in the event of an accident or claimed injury! Most Massage Liability Insurance programs such as AMTA, ABMP etc. specifically state that in your practice outside your SOP the policy is “null and void” in the event of a claim!

Recently, we have received reports that unlicensed, out of scope of practice healers are being prosecuted, fined, censured and literally shut down because they did not have the forsight to plan ahead and establish a legal basis for their healing work. Both the Federal Gov’t and all Licensing States have hired additional investigators specifically to track down, investigate and prosecute/ persecute so called “Unlicensed” practitioners. They have every legal right and mandate to do so.

Lets say it Again… No Loop Holes! The only reasonable answer to avoid both legal and liability issues to to establish and claim your right to practice today with an NAIC Membership.
We want to ensure all of our graduates, former and current students rights to practice without fear or interference. If you have not applied for the appropriate NAIC Authorized Membership, do so today! Unlike other “associations” it’s a one time fee for most memberships.
Don’t put your practice, your clients, your life at risk of legal jeopardy! Come out of the “Loop Hole” shadows. Stop basing your future on “Maybe no one will file a complaint”.
Take immediate and positive action to create a legal basis for your healing work today!
If your not sure if your specific practice is covered or if you have any questions regarding NAIC Membership and or our Authorized Blessed Medicine Card Program, contact us today by email or phone.
