Module 32

I myself have a L scapulae shoulder issue which sometimes is hard to access, so enjoy this position in order to access trigger point area. I found this was a great way to release the scapulae, will use this a lot im sure, The thumb down on the scapulae border while pulling/rolling and maintaining the pressure with the thumb was great!  The shoulder/arm tractioning was a little tricky so will work more on this, had a ticklish partner for this so may ask if ticklish prior to work and nix if they say they are, she had a difficult time relaxing anticipating it to tickle. I really enjoy tractioning work, so very releasing. Still doing the Thai tractioning on legs Ive adapted to the table and always have people say how much they love this! Cant wait to try the shoulder tractioning work.

Module 33

I so agree, I wouldnt want to end a massage sitting, but definitely want to incorporate this in elsewhere, especially if shoulder /back stiffness, great stuff.

I used a pillow when doing the straddling, I was wondering if a chair might be useful if straddled backwards but then it wouldnt make for a smooth transition, but may keep one handy just to have the option if needed.

Ive found people love trap/neck work, so Ill definitely keep some hair ties available so I can do the neck work, felt great! Had a lotion bottle handy which did help also to avoid skin friction. The pain scal was very useful here as well as my partner wasnt as flexible and due to the facing away from me I didnt have facial cues to help determine when to let up, etc, although the feel was there also.

I am not quite sure which technique you are referring to when you say "straddling", and how you would want to use a chair? Where on video #33 is this technique?

It was where you suggested putting a pillow inbetween you and the person if need be, Ill go back and look and see in a bit.

Module 34

I enjoyed the traction move, reminds me of the release I get with my yoga swing, so beneficial! I might not do this with everyone, depending on their energy, but I would not personally have an issue doing this as it is quite beneficial in many cases. 

I like the back stretch and will work on the balance a bit.

So, the trapezius work I like but it felt awkward doing it whilst moving to me, so I may not have been doing this very effectively and will continue to work on this as well.  

The head on the thigh was more comfortable feeling and doing to me, but I still had a hard time with the whole body movement thing so need to practice this one a lot more lol!

I liked the shoulder stretching and was concerned after watching the video that it might hurt my neck, but no problem there, so was relieved as this is a great stretch!

Module 35

I really appreciated this module, as I had wondered how I would do my intake.  I think I am going to do a separate intake form for Thai massage with some of the information in this module so my clients can read and be informed auditorially and visually, great stuff, I can't wait to get started!!  Thank you for such a well thought out course!

Good idea to have a separate intake form. Thai Massage is sufficiently different to warrant some more information.

You made it to the end of the certification part of the course - congratulations! Of course this is not the end of it since you will be getting bonus modules for the next couple of months. Smile
