Hi Kathy, welcome! If people love your gentle touch, you are way ahead already. It’s easy to go deeper with a gentle touch if necessary, but it is very difficult to retrain people who have been doing massage for a while and never developed this quality of touch.

Often massage schools teach a mostly anatomy based approach, but the essence of massage is not knowing which muscle your are touching, but what the quality of your touch is for any area of the body.

Certainly anatomical knowledge is important, but the priority has to be the quality of touch. Without that it doesn’t matter what someone knows about massage – it won’t feel that great. That’s something I love about Thai Massage. It doesn’t use a strictly clinical approach, but a more holistic and energy based approach.

I think you will love the full course. Smile
