Hi, my name is Asher and i am from Melbourne, OZ. After many years of doing Shiatsu and Thai Yoga Massage, finally went through all the videos of Rocking Thai Massage - very educational, very interesting and lively, not complicated, actually simple, but very effective and not hard to apply. Always felt like rocking, actually came up with some similar techniques after reading the book The Power of Softness from this site  

i think Shama is a very talented teacher/practitioner - his massage is more like the Art of Rocking. Would advise to anyone wishing to bring variety, novelty and liveliness to their practice with hopefully many happy clients. Did not practice much yet, but can see already the potential. Found myself in dilemma - how to balance between traditional Thai/Shiatsu and rocking - would like to use both, but there are only that many minutes in a session and can't make every move rocking (like cobra stretch and the like), many other questions arise - hope to share them here and get some guidance. Nice to be able to join this forum - thanks.

Hi Asher, thanks for the review. I should tell you that my initial inspiration for creating the Thai Rocking Massage system came from studying Zen Shiatsu. The teacher showed us a couple of rocking techniques, and I found this so useful that I decided to greatly expand this concept into what became Thai Rocking Massage. 

I also came across the Holistic Pulsing book and purchased it many years ago. It is still on my book shelf. It seems like we have some things in common here! Smile

You can sprinkle the rocking in for Shiatsu or Thai Massage sessions whenever it seems useful. It is not meant to be a separate system, but rather something that complements traditional Thai Massage and Shiatsu or really any other massage system.
