What is Reusi Dat Ton?


Reusi Dat Ton is a little known aspect of traditional Thai healing and culture. It consists of: breathing exercises, self-massage, acupressure, dynamic exercises, poses, mantras, visualization and meditation.


"Reusi" in Thai, from the Sanskrit Rishi, is an Ascetic Yogi or Hermit. "Dat" means to stretch, adjust or train. "Ton" is a classifier used for a Reusi and also means oneself. So "Reusi Dat Ton" means the Hermit's or Yogi's self-stretching or self-adjusting exercises. Reusis were also knownas "Jatila", "Yogi" and "Chee Prai". The Reusis were custodians and practicioners of various ancient arts and sciences such as: alchemy, tantra, yoga, natural medicine, music, mathematics, astrology, palmistry, etc. They have counterparts in many ancient cultures, such as: the Siddhas of India, the Yogis of Nepal and Tibet, the Immortals of China, the Vijjadharas of Burma and the Cambodian Eysey (from the Pali word for Reusi, Isii).


A typical Reusi Dat Ton program would begin with breathing exercises and self-massage, followed by dynamic exercises and poses (some of which involve self acupressure) and finish with visualization, mantras and meditation. The exercises and poses of Reusi Dat Ton range from simple stretches which almost anyone could do to very advanced poses which could take many years to master.


Many of the Reusi Dat Ton techniques are similar to or nearly identical to some techniques in the Tibetan Yoga Systems; which themselves include aspects of Indian Hatha Yoga as well as indigenous Tibetan Bon techniques that date back many thousands of years. For example: some of the self massage techniques, exercises, poses, neuromuscular locks (bandhas in Sanskrit), breathing patterns, ratios, visualizations and the way in which male and female practicioners would practice the same technique differently are almost identical. It is possible that Reusi Dat Ton and some of the Tibetan Yoga Systems are derived from a common source, which Rishis brought with them as they moved down the Himalayan foothills into Southeast Asia. There are also techniques of Reusi Dat Ton that are quite unique and may have been indigenous to Southeast Asia and were later assimilated into what became the Reusi Dat Ton System in Thailand.
