Module 1:

I start today the Introduction section and i enjoy it. I found some of therapist positions are hard to do it which is need balance such as squatting, sitting and standing but i start to practice and i found squatting and sitting position is easier than standing, so I’m going to practice it more. The other things that i start to practice is my breath because i think most of the people are breathing very fast and that must change if i want to do it well with the movement. I’m really enjoying the course and i’m interesting to complete it and to start practice it with clients.

 

Thanks.

Module 2

Sorry for late reply but i was looking for a model to train with, thats why i’m late.

I tried Chi Machine, in the beginning is hard to move the model hips but when i make her legs up little pet it start to move but of course not from the first time, but i’m going to used to. I know it’s just need more practice and will be easy.

The model said it’s interesting feelings and amazing i wish if someone can do it for me and try this feeling, maybe i can teach someone after the course Laugh.

I’m really enjoying the course.

 

Thanks.

I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the course.

The Chi Machine is not the easiest technique to get right the first time. It generally takes a little more practice than simpler techniques. Anyway, this course will take a few months, so I am sure you will be very good at the Chi Machine sooner or later. Smile

It’s a good idea to teach someone so that you can experience it yourself.

Module 3

I’m so sorry for late reply but in my country its very hard to find a model and i don’t have a partner but i’m working in it. Anyway, i found some positions are difficult to do it such as second position (circular foot bending) and fifth position (push-pull-rotate) and they need more practice while the video is playing to do it step by step. The last position (twisting the feet out one at a time) the hard in this one is to keep my wrist straight. The other positions can see it and stop the video and do it.

My model is enjoying it even if she can’t come daily Laugh and i’m glad for that .

 

Thanks.

The two techniques which you mentioned are a little more involved. With practice you will be able to learn them. However if you ever come across a particular technique which is difficult for you, you can just skip it for now and go on with the material. You can always come back to it later when you are more used to the Thai Massage system.

Don’t get hung up on any particular technique. There are hundreds of techniques in Thai Massage, so you can just pick and choose those which you like most, at least in the beginning.

You mentioned that it is difficult to find models in your country. Since you did not fill in the biographical information in your forum profile, I don’t know where in the world you live and what, if any, massage background you have. If you would complete this part in your profile, it would help me relate to your posts better. Smile

Thanks for explaining your background – very helpful. I have another student in Saudi Arabia. Actually she bought every single one of my courses, so she must be very serious about the Thai Massage business in your country. However her name sounds Indian, so I guess she is not a native of Saudi Arabia. She never participated in the forum, so I don’t know much about her.

Module 4

Thanks Shama to let me know about the conceptual thinking, i was always warring when i forget the order of the techniques steps, i thought that will effect the client and disconnect  even when i know the client doesn’t know.

These last two sessions really have a very nice techniques and my partner is enjoy it.

 

Thanks again Laugh

Module 5

The techniques are not hard for me to do it but the only things that i found it hard is to support her legs and this is what i need to practice it more.

My partner was enjoyed the massage especially the techniques for calf muscle (especially the squeeze, pull and roll up) because her muscle is very tied.

 

Thanks Laugh

You might find the next few modules a little more challenging. They will introduce many leg stretches. However I am sure you will do well with sufficient practice! Smile

Module 6

This session i found it hard for me to do it, not on how to use my forearm but the way of how i set and how to move my body and her legs. So, i will practice more and more and more.

My partner is trying to helped me in the positions even if should not but we are trying together.

She is feeling happy with the pressure of my forearm.

Thanks.

Naturally many techniques will not feel easy when you learn them initially. But as you say with lots of practice it will get much easier. Watch the videos several times and try to see how I use my body and how I position myself. Then play around with the position and see which way to move so that it feels easier and more natural for you.

It is really important to watch the videos several times. I can guarantee you that you will see many things which you had overlooked the first time around.

Module 7

 

It’s very nice stretching position but last 3 was hard to do it, as i said before it will work with practicing.

My partner likes the last position more than others. It released the lower back pain.

 

Thanks.

Module 8

 

Very nice stretching techniques, me and my partner are enjoying the session. True i found my positions are difficult to do it because i’m not used to, but i will practice more. But can i ask you about the knee technique, is it ok to do the technique for the people who they have problem in the knee joint or having surgery (replacement for the knee joint)? 

 

Thanks.

Yes, you can work on knee problems and knee replacements. However especially in the case of knee replacements you should ask the client how it feels. There is no way that you can know how it feels, since it is not the original natural situation anymore.

So just start out gently and ask the client for feedback. If the feedback is positive, go on and maybe go a little deeper. If it hurts, either lighten the pressure, change techniques, or don’t use this knee technique at all. In other words, let the client guide the session. Go with what works, and don’t do what doesn’t feel right to the client.
