The Thai Back Massage course definitely goes more into spinal twist techniques, but there is also an entire module about it in the bonus section of this course.

Module 34 - Sitting Position 2

I had previously learned a somewhat similar version of the traction for arm and back technique. I put my forearm under the clients’ interlocked hands while I’m standing facing the side, with one leg along their spine for support. While grasping the client above their wrists I lean back to provide traction. It seems your version may provide more traction since you are wrapping your hands around her upper arms. My partner liked both versions of this technique since he found both to be effective. 

I like the back stretch technique and my partner felt it was a strong stretch. I used a pillow between his back and my knee. I also like the forearm therapy work on neck and trapezius technique since it includes forearm rolling.

It would be great if you added a summary module that showed you doing a side position and seated massage sequence. That would help solidify the material since it would show the transitions between each technique and I’d be able to follow along without stopping for talking points. I really like your idea to end a Thai massage session the way a yoga session ends.

I will put that on my to-do list for a future upgrade of this course. Smile

Module 35 - Client Communication

I’m glad you included a module demonstrating communication with a client in this course. This is something that has not been covered in other courses I’ve taken. I like your summary of Thai massage since it gives a good idea of what it is and where it came from so the client knows what to expect. It’s helpful that you pointed out the advantages of Thai massage as well. Do you use an intake form with your clients?

Your explanation of the one to ten scale system keeps it simple for the client while letting them know it is their session and their choice and that you encourage their participation. 

Thanks for also summarizing the concept of eastern natural medicine and how it stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Also, it will be very useful to recognize that people primarily process information in different ways, auditory, visual or kinesthetic.

Here is an article and video which explains the whole story about intake forms:
