I'm just embarking on the journey of the Complete Thai Massage course. I have taken a two day Thai Massage course in person and want to learn more!
I took a break from my massage work for several reasons, two of which are: My wrists and shoulders were in a lot of pain, and I no longer was enjoying what I was doing. I didn't feel my practice was deepening and I am looking forward to learning a new way to experience and express myself through my role of massage therapist...and meet others doing the same!
Welcome back Mariah! Thai Massage is definitely easier on your body, if it is done right. The reason is that you don't depend on your hands so much, but can use many other body parts. Also you have much better ergonomics in Thai Massage, especially when you work on a floor mat.
I even produced an entire course for working without hands, but for now the Complete Thai Massage course will be all you need. Especially later, in the bonus modules, there is a lot of material about hands free work.
