Testimonial: "This is really nice!!!" — Jennifer T, Virginia

“Dr. James had a very nice approach in his teachings. I especially like the simple controlled methods that I find to be very effective in treating a client. He also does a very nice job of not rushing through his routines so that it is very easy for even a novice to follow even if they do not fully understand the physics of what they are doing. As a therapist this gives me ideas of new moves to incorporate in my massages. I look forward to see more videos from Dr. James.” - Vincent H, Texas

“Free video in exchange for this 5-star review. I feel pretty bad giving this rating since I've never actually seen this video. If this video is anywhere near as brilliant as the marketing ploy that got me to write this review then I can hardly wait to watch. The email dated 4/28/14 reads: Email us "a link to your 5 star review, your phone number, address and the name of the FREE thank you DVD you would like. Choose one from the Aesthetic VideoSource catalog... Choose a free DVD title of your choice. We’ll mail you a FREE Aesthetic VideoSource DVD. Limit one per person." I'm not the only one writing bunk reviews for the 'free' video. Education has it's price!” P. Greenly, USA

“I fell in love with Thai massage during a visit to Thailand five years ago. It wasn't until I grew more in my career that I began to renew my interest in this very spiritual and healing tradition. I have taken classes, but this massage video has been my favorite way of learning (second only to another future trip to Thailand, of course!). This training course covers all of the fundamentals of Thai massage using the Mat. Above and beyond just how to master a Thai massage routine. From actual techniques to the historical significance, healing capabilities, and spiritual applications. This video covers it all . This video course is quite lengthy (172 minutes) but I truly enjoyed every minute of it. You definitely cannot capture everything in an hour or even two hour course. Each posture and technique is discussed at great length by an instructor that knows the subject matter deeply. Seeing the clients receiving the healing massage is inspiring. What Dr. James does to heal and balance the body and improving energy flow is something that I am looking forward to mastering. I would highly recommend this to any massage therapist; it is a truly is amazing and educational path.” Fired up Beauty, USA
