Regarding wiping the oil off the feet, you will find a good solution at the end of the reflexology section in an upcoming module. 🙂

Module #11/12/13/14 

I think this modules are quite interesting in terms of marketing, and counselling no? Do you think it would be a problem to discuss issues like wrong shoeware and consequences like hammertoes, bunyons, Morton´s neuroma and Plantar Fasciitis on the service website or in google blogs. I think it could benefit so much the reputation but on the other hand as you mentioned we are not orthopaedist nor podiatrists. We are not allowed to make any healing promise. And healing in these cases often is dependant on so many factors we can not control. I tend to think it would be a good thing to know about a clients condition, anyway. And to discuss that in personal with a client in a consulting session.

You have to walk a fine line here between discussing foot issues and making medical claims, especially if you are in the US or in a strictly regulated European country. I think as long as we limit the discussion to lifestyle issues we should be fine. And you have to be careful not to make claims to heal or fix things.

Yes, this is what regulations are about in Germany. As practitioner, therapist and counsellor you are not allowed to give any healing promisses. Checked on that in different courses before. 

module #15 

This module intrigued me in a special way. You are talking about a phenomenon that I became aware of in my studies of Taijiquan. I am talking about overpronation. It is a very common problem as far as I can tell from my teaching experiences. Many students young and old are affected by that. Thus, I shade light on this issue in every lesson. It becomes prominent when practising Zhan Zhuang. But this exercise as far as I can tell is best to reduce the problems a) the muscles supporting the ankle b) the muscles supporting the middle foot causing overpronation.

Classic Zhan Zhuang is done by standing riggid as a tree. I adjusted the exercise of Zhan Zhuang according to Bhuddist and Taoist teachings of change. Human conditions, physical, mental and environmental is constant change, thus a riggid way of excersice must fail. In order to integrate into human system Zhan Zhuang needs to be fluid. Thus, the knees have to work, the hip has to be in action, the spine has to move, shoulders, ellbows, ankles and even the chest has to be moving. All joints have to be in action triggered by the breath. Now, the movements do not need to be expansive. The aim is to have them as small and as fluid as possible.

I am sure there are more ways to address this issue than what I showed in this course. It sounds like you already have an additional approach to it. The more we know, the better...

Dear Shama, 

it seems like that I did it. The time past by so fast and it never was boring. Last question that came up during my practise: do we always want to press in direction of the heart? Often I find myself in postions where it is either impossible to work in this direction or it feels uncomfortable.

Does this rule apply to Thai massage, too? 

Best regards

Ali

I know that there are people who insist that you should only press in the direction of the heart. However I know plenty of therapists who don't follow this, so it is not a 'rule'. It is also not taught in Thai Massage that you should do that. Anyway, in Thai Massage we don't really use directional stroking movements, so this doesn't apply anyway, even if it would matter - which it doesn't in Thai Massage.
