My complete repertoire of therapeutic shoulder work which goes way beyond what you saw in these modules can be found here:

module 33 sitting position 1

A good alternative for the shoulder rocking with the side of the hands is using the hand palms. The spinal twist you are showing is a gentle one and very good to do with stiff people.

module 34 sitting position 2

These advanced back stretches are a welcome addition to all you have shared so far. It will take some time though to master these.

The sitting position stretches are not something which you would use in every massage session, but they are great to have in your repertoire for those who really need specific therapeutic work or for those yogi types who enjoy strong stretches.

module 35 client communication

In this last module it was good to see that you also put a lot of attention in how to communicate with the clients. Very useful!

Final thoughts

About 4 months ago I had no idea what this course would be like. It just felt good to start it.

Initially I was not happy that the course material was not delivered instantly but only 2 modules per week. But working along with the modules as the weeks went by, I am very happy with this approach. It gave me the opportunity to internalize all that was shared in each module. 

I fully enjoyed the way Shama is sharing his passion patiently, with great precision and an unbelievable eye for details, also with regards to breathing and ergonomics.

In doing this course, it gave me two options. Just perceive it as a 'normal' course, learning all the techniques needed to perform  an above average Thai massage. Or internalize it it such a way that it 'awakened' me and allowing myself to do the massage from within.

Thank you so much Shama and may trough all of your effort the hearts of many be touched and awakened to make this world a better place.
