Hi,

I’m Tom in Saint Joseph, Missouri. I have been a part-time massage therapist for 1 1/2 years. I became interested in massage after experiencing chronic pelvic nerve pain for several years and the only relief I could get was through massage. I was exposed to Thai massage during massage school, was immediately drawn to it, and have since taken a couple courses. I recently added Thai massage to the services I provide professionally. I feel I have tons to learn but confident that courses like the videos offered here will help in my development.

Hi Tom, welcome to our community. I am curious, where did you take those Thai Massage courses?

I am sure our Hip Therapy course will add to your repertoire since this is information which is hardly ever taught in Thai Massage courses. The same is the case with our other Thai Massage therapy courses. Looking forward to reading about your experience with the material. Smile

Shama,

This past summer I attended a weekend work shop given by Mukti Michael Buck of the Vedic Conservatory. And last month I attended the Thai Institute of Healing Arts’ Basic Thai class in Denver, Colorado.  The Thai Institute class covered a basic “classic” routine which I incorporate in my massage.  However, I do not like the intense pressure applied to the sen lines and feel that is not necessary to accomplish energy work. Also hard on the thumbs! I will probably be taking your rocking massage course later.

I am totally with you on that one. Personally I have never liked the traditional sen line thumbing style. It is way too hard on the thumbs, and it often feels pokey to the client. Plus I don’t believe that this is the only or even the best way to work the lines.

Actually I am just putting the final touches on my latest course which is about this exact topic. It’s a Thai Massage sen line course which does not use the traditional thumbing method at all. It will be ready in a few days.

The rocking course is another answer to this – it is much more therapist friendly than the traditional direct linear pressure method and according to my experience and the experience of lots of my students it is much more effective and more pleasant to receive as well.

The rocking method is probably my biggest contribution to the art of Thai Massage. I created this system about 15 years ago and hundreds of therapists have learned it and applied it successfully. You would love this course, I am sure!
