This 3.5 hour Thai massage video (on 2 DVDs) presents the complete sequence of Northern Style Thai Massage as we teach it in our 70-hour Level 3 course. Chuck Duff performs an actual massage on a model while providing instructional commentary on body mechanics and technique for each pose. The Northern or Chiang Mai style is by far the most popular form of Thai massage practiced today. There is a strong emphasis on movement and stretching, making it both enjoyable and therapeutic. The sequence presented in the video closely follows the full routine taught at the Northern Medicine Hospital in Chiang Mai, under the direction of master Aachan Sintorn. All Thai massage videos are not created equal. This in-depth video exploration of Nuad Boran has been called by one Amazon reviewer the "best Thai massage instructional video available", rating 5 stars on Amazon.
Chuck Duff's teaching reflects his diverse influences as a student of Buddhism, a martial artist and bodyworker. He places strong emphasis on body mechanics, working safely and efficiently. Chuck's prior students have given glowing reviews of his teaching -- please see the student comments page for examples. This Thai massage DVD is a great starting point and reference for those who have studied Thai massage or are planning to. With an original music track by Prior World.
