I used the principles in module one about body mechanics and breathe with my massage, the massage was more relaxing at I connected more with the client. I’m already in Massage therapist. Because of the pandemic restrictions to in person learning I am taking this course, I have always wanted to learn thai massage and incorporate it into my practice. This first introduction module makes me excited to learn the techniques and apply them to my field.
Hi Abrah, welcome to the Complete Thai Massage certification program. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with our certification checklist to make sure that it is all correctly organized:
I already made some changes to make sure that you can be found in the forum: I added your name to your profile, and your last name to your topic title. I also included your last name in your display name. Without those changes it is very difficult to find you since your full name didn't show up anywhere. We need to be able to connect your forum profile to your certification registration.
Please fill out the bio section in your forum profile so that I have an idea about your background. This helps me to relate to you better and respond better.
I am glad to read that floor work is not a problem for you and that you see its value. Thai Massage definitely works better on a floor mat. You don't have any limitations there as opposed to table work.
Foot massage. I practiced this on my husband. I’m glad I didn’t try it on a client first. The rocking motion was very awkward at first. I think I need more practice. But I can see the benefits once it becomes natural. Also I liked what you said about the initial touch. It’s a good reminder, that the first touch needs to be welcoming and relaxing.
I incorporated the push pull technique on my massage today the client said it felt really good in her hip joint, was I doing it right? All eight of these moves put together really loosens up the foot and leaves a relaxing feeling I just hope I can remember them even if I don’t use them every time.
