Module 1:

Hi Shama, long time i didn’t send anything. I know that i buy this course before many month but only now i start it, so i hop that still ok with you and the certificate?

About the module 1, thanks for the anatomy information and the knee problems causes, its really helpful :).

On the second and third techniques with fingers rolling on the knee cap, i found the people who they have pain on the knee they feel pain on the beginning, so is that normal? Is the pain will release after while ?

 

Thanks

Normally the knee therapy course is not part of the certification program because it is one of the smaller courses. If you look at the list of courses which are part of the certification program you will see that the knee course is not included:
Certification courses

However I you really want a certificate for this course, I can make an exception and issue you one anyway. Smile

Regarding your question – these techniques should not cause pain. Try doing them more gently, more lightly, and focus on working with a soft touch.

If you do this, and your client is still reporting pain, ask if the pain feels releasing, i.e. it is getting less, or if it is sharp and not releasing. If the pain feels releasing and gradually goes away, then you are okay. If the pain is sharp, then either your technique is too strong or you should not use this technique on this client. 

However if you simply do this technique in a more gentle way with less pressure, I cannot imagine how it could cause pain even if there is a knee problem. Just decrease the intensity of the technique until there is no more pain, and then try increasing slowly from there.

Module 2:

Is it ok to do all these techniques if there is swallow around the knee cap, or i should not do the massage?

Actually i tried to do it for one ladies only because she asked for the massage, in the beginning she felt pain but later the swallow start to release and the pain is better, of course not from the first time but after 3 days doing the same.

I just want to be sure from you if what i done is ok or no.

Another question, if someone is doing knee joint replacement, is it ok to do massage for them or i should not?

The techniques are not hard to do it and it was effected perfectly for most people.

 

Thanks Smile

Now that’s difficult to answer. It always depends on the condition and situation of every individual client. In one case it seems that you got a good result already. Here is what I suggest:
1. Always start gently
2. Get a lot of feedback from your client. 

The only one who knows how it feels in the knee is your client. I often make such sessions very interactive. You might to go back to your Complete Thai Massage course and re-watch module 35 which is all about how to communicate with your client.

Ask questions like “how does this feel from one to ten?”, “Is it good pain or bad pain, in other words is the pain releasing and getting less or does it stay the same or get worse?”.

Thai massage can be good for swelling, however without knowing or having seen or touched the client, I can of course not offer really qualified advice.

One of my preferred knee techniques which works really well for me and which is gentle is the leg and knee rocking. I sometimes do this for quite a long time.

Regarding the knee replacement, again you have to work with the client, not just on the client. Any operation causes trauma which can stay in the body for a long time. If you can relax the knee area and re-establish a feeling of more well-being, this can be a good thing. However you just need to ask the client how it feels and if it makes them feel better. Then just use the techniques which the client likes and which work best on him or her.

Module 3:

Hi Shama,

Really the client likes rocking technique since i take thai complete course, i think i will take rocking course after i finished this course. Is open all the blocked areas.

In the second and third techniques i didn’t know exactly where is the area, is my hand on top of the knee or on the side of the knee?

 

Thanks.

Your fingers and thumbs are on various points on the inside and outside of the knee and the leg when you do the rocking. When you do the palming circles, you are still on the side of the knee, not on top.

The rocking course is an excellent choice. If I had to choose my favorite style of technique, the clear winner would be all those rocking moves. This includes rocking, circling, wiggling, back and forth moves and more. These are all easy on the therapist and non intrusive for the client.

Module 4:

My partners really feel better after doing all the techniques especially the wiggling and rocking. For me the positions it talk me more than one practice especially when i do the knee from inside where the space is not big enough especially when the client is not flexible. 

The techniques roll in and pull back and pull down and push up, i found it not easy because i have to control my pressure.

 

Thanks.

Module 5:

In this module the techniques are not easy for me or for my partners. On the third technique when i lean in on the back of the knee 45 degree and push the legs my partners feel pain so i don’t know if i do it wrong or she can’t handle the pain on her knee so i stopped. The last technique from the back it’s very nice really my partner feels different after this technique.

Thanks for every thing.Laugh

Try pushing the leg down less strongly and putting less weight into your forearm. This should resolve it.
