This course has been great! I teach Pilates and Yoga. I use the techniques shown by Shama on their own or in addition to other sessions. I also use it as an incentive.
Example : I have a young lady getting married who bought a wedding package for Pilates at the end of her session to tell her thank you for her patronage at my studio I am offering her the Thai Rocking massage before her wedding.
I have not only gained a client for fitness but for true, health and wellness. This makes me happy as it is why what I got into this business anyway.
That is only one story. I have another. I have a client with severe scoliosis. She is in pain most the time. I have incorporated these techniques in her Pilates and Yoga sessions. Today she came in with radiating pain from her hip and shoulder. We did Chi machine and I had her lay down across a Pilates apparatus called the Spine Corrector. (This apparatus arches bach to put the back in gentle extension) I did the circling down her sternum and gently rocked her shoulders. Her arm on the left side was very tight would not touch the floor from the apparatus that is slightly elevated. Within seconds of circles on her sternum and rocking her shoulder her arm fell to the floor and released. Her eyes got very big and she let out a sigh of relief.
This is very rewarding and it is why I love my job. I now have a new tool to add to help people, friends and clients.
Thank you, Thank you Thank you, Shama!
This has been wonderful. I also feel I will be set up for success for the study of the western massage styles now.
