In March of 2012 Gilian Lata, LAc, Dipl OM received exciting news from a patient that had recently returned from Thailand. While there, he’d been treated by Dr. Taworn Kasomson with a new method of healing that combined acupuncture with structural realignment and myofascial release. The description of the treatment was quite unique and the patient boasted a full recovery.
Ms. Lata immediately communicated with Master Acupuncturist and Medical Doctor Mr. Kasomson and discovered that he had developed this system and was the only person in the world to practice it. By May of 2012, Ms. Lata was in Bangkok to learn this technique one on one, being treated by Dr. Taworn, observing other patients during treatment, participating, and discussing the philosophy behind his technique. Her time abroad was spent discovering the methodology and practice of this new style that combines acupuncture with other disciplines to realign the spine, improve posture and release the tension that causes disease.
Ms. Lata has returned from Thailand with a new healing paradigm to incorporate into her practice that she calls the SRAT Technique. The treatment includes abdominal massage with myofascial release, qi gong and acupuncture to reset and reteach our bodies to properly align, relieving the blockages caused by the activities of daily living: working on computers, driving, sitting at office desks – our sedentary lifestyle and the way our posture deteriorates in these environments are contributing factors to many forms of disease from chronic structural pain (back, neck, joint) to malfunctioning organ systems. Releasing the tension in the spine and fascia permits successful communication between muscles, nerves, organs and bone which allows the body to heal itself and frees it from continuing damage.
2016 Update: Although we are no longer practicing this technique due to time and cost constraints, we would be happy to provide you information on visiting Dr. Kasomson in Thailand and setting up an appointment.
