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.
