Last week I had a wonderful experience in the physiotherapy section of our clinic : a 47 years old patient with Down Syndrome who came to us for some physio procedure - he had also on his Treatment Notes a therapeutical massage recommendation. Of course, I know the recommendations and precaution in this medical cases and I respected all the procedures but my client and patient had a complaint all the time about some pain in the right side of his back... I palpated it in that area, I made a calming massage, but some patients with Down's Syndrom have a  reduced tolerance of pain and the incapacity to give a qualitative and quantitative description of what they feel. All of these aspects cause difficulty in evaluating pain.So I must to do something different because was no sign there about a physical problem in that area - only the complaint of my patient about the pain. I don't graduated from now the rocking massage course of Shama, but I had some ideas about it from knee therapy massage course and from his videos so I tried to make a soft circling move there without any type of friction. The patient confirmed to me it is a good move and he feel very well and encouraged me to work some rocking moves on his back. 

After that I was so glad and happy in the same time because he left the massage table very easy and want to gave me a high five , told me his name and told me I have a very soft hand and he liked my massage. 
I can say all what my patient told me after this massage and his pain-free feeling after some Shama thai massage moves was the Christmas gift for me this year .

After I complete HHM I must to learn rocking massage. sometimes I know I must to use rocking massage instead other massage because the client body need it... and every time I know it was the correct decision.

The Thai Rocking Massage course is a huge favorite of many students. It's another really unique course which you will get lots of benefits from.
