Hi. I have long been interested in learning how to perform Thai Massage and finally decided to stop procrastinating and just do it. Thanks for allowing me to join your group of students Shama.

Hi Denis, welcome! I am glad to hear that I motivated you to "just do it"! Smile This will be an exciting course, even for me,  because I am adding lots of new material all the time. I am looking forward to your feedback and to hearing about your progress!

Hi Shama. I have just finished watching Module 1. I was interested to see that you appear to using just a rug on the tiled floor as your massage surface. I know I saw some mention of mats and blankets in your introduction to the course, but I wondered if you had a preferred thickness of mat? Currently I am using an 80mm dense foam mattress but after seeing what you are using I think maybe it is thicker than is desirable. Any advice on this would be welcome.

Yes, I have some tips on that. Actually this video will show up as part of the course, but you can watch it here already:

Thanks Shama for the advice on mats. I have had a lot of Thai massages from a lot of different practitioners but never come across anything like your Chi Machine technique. I will have to watch the video and practice more. Front of the thighs and my toes are feeling the strain but I am getting there.

There will be quite a few Thai Massage techniques in this course which you have never seen because I have developed my own style. This goes especially for the many rocking techniques which I am using and which are not used in traditional Thai Massage. However I know from personal experience and from the feedback of many course students that the rocking techniques are a very useful and effective addition to Thai Massage.
