module 35- communication
I have to say all that you said sounds exactly like one of my consent forms so thats great makes evrything very professional and relieves any nervousness of the first time client. and instead of a blanket to cover clients i am going to put a heated blanket under the sheet on top of my mats, i'll also have other blankets on hand but yea i find clients do get cold during treatments so thats good to have. I loved this course, it really opened my mind to different ways to use my body and to look at the clients body and issues as a whole unit, not just individual areas.
Re: "With your scapula release, where you hook your fingers under and lift and pull, is there a bit of a circular motion in there as well?"
You can always add some more motion into the techniques. If it feels good to the client, then it is good. I have never been a proponent of rigidly following sequences and rules. Creativity is the way to go!
Re: "Most of my clients that require a sitting position wouldn't be able to handle some of the more intense techniques you showed - so would I be able to do sitting treatments in a chair for them?"
Why not try that? I have always wanted to do a course on Thai Massage on a chair, but massage chairs are hard to come by in Thailand since they are hardly ever used. But I have no doubt that quite a few techniques could be modified for chair work.
On your certification registration form you had checked that you wanted the CE certificate. But I have not seen that you enrolled in the test questions which the NCBTMB requires. You can check on that in your course manual.
As of now you are entitled to the International Certificate, if you want it. If you answer the CE test questions, then I can send you a CE certificate as well. Please let me know.
