April 03, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
April 3, 2014 - Aesthetic VideoSource is proud to announce that it paired once more with Dr. Anthony James to win a Bronze Telly award for an educational massage training video series on Thai Acupressure Massage.

The 34th Annual Telly Awards received over 12,000 entries from all 50 states and 5 continents. The Telly Awards is the premier award honoring the finest film and video productions, groundbreaking web commercials, videos and films, and outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs.

Dr. Anthony James, CMT, DPM, ND, MDAM, SMOKH, is the expert in the training videos. He is the top recognized Thai Yoga master outside of Thailand. He has set the professional standards and certifications programs in the U.S.

Dr. 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 over 6000 practitioners since 1984, including many well-known teachers established today.

Dr. James's life focus is teaching Thai massage. He is an amazing instructor who explains and demonstrates each technique so that you can easily grasp the concepts and repeat them.

Dr. James provides training for massage therapists who use a massage table or work on a traditional Thai massage mat on the floor. The 2 comprehensive massage training online videos or 2 DVD set are a total of 5 Hrs. 28 Mins.

The individual titles are Thai Acupressure Massage: Feet, Hands & Face for the Mat (2 Hrs. 47 Mins.) and Thai Acupressure Massage: Feet, Hands & Face for the Table (2 Hrs. 41 Mins.).

In each video, Dr. James demonstrates a complete acupressure facial and massage treatments for the feet, hands and face, so massage therapists can provide these procedures according to their treatment room setting. Dr. 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, massage therapists 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 a Thai acupressure facial helps tone and restructure the face, providing a nonsurgical, noninvasive face lift," says Dr. James. "And, of course, your clients will appreciate these deeply relaxing treatments."

Dr. James is the founder and Director of Education for The SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine and The Thai Yoga Center, home of the International Thai Therapists Association (ITTA), and host to the National Thai Yoga, Massage and Bodywork Certification Board (NTYMBCB) examinations. He is the Director of Education of ONACS, Oklevueha Native American Church of SomaVeda located in Plant City, Florida and is also the Director of Clinical Services, the Missionary Clinic and the Wellness Center. He has authored various publications, including the first Thai massage book in English. The list of Dr. James' credentials goes on.
