Based on the holistic principles of Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine, Thai herbalism is a vibrant ancient tradition that was preserved over a millennium in the monasteries and temples of Bangkok, and which continues to be practiced in villages throughout Thailand to this day.

Of interest to herbalists and massage therapists alike, A Thai Herbal introduces the basic principles of this unique form of healing in simple and clear terms, and presents over 150 individual herbs with their uses in Thai, Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western herbalism. This book is informative and practical, translating ancient ideas into a modern context and providing helpful tips and recipes for experienced and beginning herbalists. Best of all, this book is fun, offering easy recipes for home remedies, beauty products, and cuisine that will make the world of Thai tradition come alive in your home.

A Thai Herbal places the popular practice of Thai massage in its native context, as an integral part of a holistic healing system. The book also introduces the traditional practice of Thai herbal compress massage, a treatment that is enjoying increasing popularity in Western spas. Acupressure charts provide guidance for Thai energy meridian work, and suggestions for treatment of specific ailments.
