Module 9

 

It's very hard stretching position for me and for my partner. Actually most of the position i can't do it. I hope if someone professional can do it for me, i really want to experience the feeling by my self Smile. I will try to do it with another friend who is more flexible.

 

Thanks.

If you do those stretches correctly, they are not hard to to. Try watching the video again and watch me closely how I do it. The main thing is to work with your whole body and not just with your arms. Almost always when students say that something is hard to do, they are using too much muscle power, or they work mostly with their arms. Try to get the feeling that you move the leg with your entire body. Then it will not be hard to do.

Your model is a woman, correct? How much does she weigh? Is she very stiff or flexible? And how much do you weigh? I am trying to get an idea about you and your model in regards to size, weight and flexibility.

Thanks for you're advice and i'm trying to do what you said to me. Yeah my model is women and she's not flexible and she's not very thin maybe between 80-90 Kilo and i'm in 98 Kilo, So i think we are both heavy Embarassed. Also she's not very tall and i'm 164.

Module 10

 

Some techniques i can't do it because my partner is not flexible at all and she feel it hard, so i scared to push her to do it or try it, thats why i decide to not do it on her. I will keep it on mind to try it later when i found someone is more flexible. i liked the idea of 'Blood Stop' technique but i scared to do it, maybe because my partner is not accept every technique. Also, i'm not flexible so some body positions are hard for me to do it and because she's like this with me i feel stress little pet. So, is it better for me to find another model who are more flexible or what?

 

Thanks

Module 11

 

It's very good to have a summary, really it helps to connect the steps together and to let you remember  what are you doing. Can i know for the foot and leg technique how many minutes it should take for me to do it in the session?

 

Thanks.

That depends on how long your session is. Personally I have never done less than 2 hour sessions. But if you would do a 1 hour session, that leaves you a lot less time.

Then it depends on what you focus on most in the session. Is is a general full body session, or do you focus more on specific areas where the client has problems (shoulders or back for example)? So you see, there really is no hard and fast rule.

If the client has problems in the legs and hips, you would spend more time on the lower body. If a client has more upper body problems, you might do a lot less on the feet and legs. There is no fixed amount of time which you should spend on a particular area. Is is all flexible and depends on the time you have and what the client needs.

Module 12

 

Wow the hip stretching are amazing for the lower back pain, i enjoyed doing it and my partner feel very good, it's release her lower back pain. The position which the one she put her foot on my stomach area it didn't work because she's tall and it touch the breast area, but i feel it will work well with someone short and i will keep it on my mind. Also, the sandwich stretching position i found it hard to control my legs to lean in to back her legs, is it because she's tall or because i'm not flexible?

 

Can i ask, Is all kind of positions from Module 2 until now are ok for people having knee problems or spinal and neck disk or having back surgery and knee replacement? Or i have to be carful on some positions? and which positions i cannot do it?

 

Thanks.

Module 13

 

It's very nice information to learn and to keep it on mind especially with the discomfort feeling. I found the changing in the techniques are very helpful with my partner, even the working on the area with the three techniques (scooping, circling and wiggling), actually i used the circling and wiggling on sport massage and deep tissue techniques on tied spot, it's really very helpful to release the pain and tied muscle.

 

Thanks.

If you have clients with knee replacements, hip replacements, back surgery or other issues, you need to modify your sessions. You cannot use the techniques in a mechanical way so that everyone gets the same session.

Since there is no way that you can feel what is going on in the body of a client who had a particular surgery or replacement, you need to work closely with the client. What I do is just ask them. For example I might say something like this:

" Let's try some moves and please let me know if it feels ok for you. If it feels beneficial to you we will continue, and if it doesn't feel right, we will switch to some other techniques. I will work with you to make sure that it all feels right to you." 

Clients like such a personalized approach and they like to be heard, especially when it comes to injuries and operations which only they can feel.

However this means that you have to have a big enough repertoire and enough experience to switch from using one technique to another one. You will learn all this throughout this course. It will take time to do such therapeutic work. 

After you go through the 35 main course modules, there are 15 more modules which will deal with more specialized issues in detail. When you are done with the entire training program, you will know how to deal with such clients. Smile

Module 14

 

It's a very nice hip stretching, especially for the lower back pain. My partner is enjoyed the stretching especially the last technique. For me the movement from side to side around the body it's need more practice thats all. Can i ask: is this hip stretching is good for person have one side from his hip is blocked, is it release this block and help to move the body with more flexibility? Another question: if the client is overweight and it's not easy to feel the hip bone, what should i do, is there any special treat?

 

Thanks.

The techniques in this module will loosen the hip and relax it. They are not really meant to increase flexibility in the hip joint. For that  you would use all the stretches in the "hip pie" system which is all covered in the course.

The stretches in this module are especially useful for the lower back, and yes, they will increase the flexibility of the lower spine.

If the client is so overweight that you cannot feel the hip bone, you can either just put your hand on the general area, or you can do hip rocking by placing the hands on the outside of the hip instead of on top of it, or you might just skip a particular technique if it's too difficult to do on someone. 

Always remember that the techniques are options to choose from, not mandatory sequences. Not every technique will work well on everyone. So we don't want to force "a square peg into a round hole".

Module 15

 

It's interesting to listen by my hand, i feel what you mean from this words. Is it normal because of the connection between me and my partner to feel something or to hear voicing on my abdomen or her during the massage for her abdomen? Is this because of the "Hara" area? 

In some techniques i scared when i done it like: pushing the rib cage, elephant walk on the rib and on the shoulders, because i'm heavy. I tried but i don't feel comfortable when i done it. My partner is ok with it, i think Smile that what she said, so what do you recommend? 

 

Thanks.

If you are sensitive, it can happen that you feel or perceive things which outside of your normal sensory perception. This has happened to me many times. Actually it is a good sign, and it is exactly what you are supposed to be developing.

Listen to your partner. If she feels good about something, then it is okay. It has nothing to do with your own weight. You can work feather light even if you are heavy. It is important that you develop the ability to work strongly and also in a light and gentle way. So that's a good opportunity. There is no need to be scared of any techniques. As long as your partner does not give you negative feedback, you are fine.

Module 16

 

Sorry for delay but i was very busy.

The shoulders techniques are very nice in it's result. My partner is feel released for her shoulder pain, only on arm-triangle shoulder stretch she felt pain in her hand wrest on one hand, so is it because i done wrong or because she already have pain in her wrest from work? and in like this case is it good to do this technique if someone have problem in his wrest?.

The shoulder rowboat technique it didn't work with me from the first time but after many tried really my partner said it's very nice feeling.

The shoulder triangle stretch can put stress on not so flexible wrists. One way to deal with this is to move the client's hand closer to the shoulder. This reduces the angle in the wrist and is easier to handle. If someone has serious wrist issues and just cannot handle this stretch, then just skip it on this person. Remember that all techniques are options to choose from, not mandatory sequences.

Module 17

I likes this session is easy to do and my partner enjoyed it especially for the wrist techniques, maybe I found the wrist techniques in one of the hands are hard to move the hand but that only on the first time after that I felt it released and easier to rotate her wrist.

 

thanks shams I'm really enjoying you're classes and the way of teaching.
