The book is a great introduction for everybody who starts to work with Thai massage, but also everybody who is beginning his journey of exploring ancient systems, philosophy and medicine and natural healing methods. You get not only very in-detail description of Thai massage techniques, but also a wider context of Thai-history, tradition  and philosophy. Great inspiration!
