Thai Massage Teacher Rick Gold Part 2
It’s part two of my interview with one of the founding North American teachers of Thai Yoga Massage, Rick Gold.
This week he shares some of his research into what makes Thai Massage therapeutic medicine. He also shares the story behind the music he co-produces that is an incredible accompaniment to Thai Massage and all forms of Asian bodywork.
He’s helped to make four different projects, each with multiple albums that explore the doshas, the chakras, and various aspects of healing Chinese medicine.
All in all, Rick Gold plays a valuable part in the history of Thai Massage and helping to establish its credibility in the West. This interview and part one help to tell that story and fill on with gratitude that a teacher such as Rick was there to help pave the way for future generations.
