Complete Thai Massage,

Module 21-Prone Legs 2,

This class was great. So important to stay, relax, not to press, push , to lean, to think softness, and yes is true the more relax, we are the better technique, we are more confident, and the client receive our confidence, our energy, our softness, great point.

I did, practice. First ones I was off, I did  practice more is a little better today, my husband feedback was' feels good and relax',yes I have to come back here to practice. I enjoy the hips, they are fun , the forearm feels good on the back, side of the legs, also on the gluts, when the hip is up is fun and easy, the one when we supposed to use the knee, do not work well for me, I did the squeeze, and roll instead, was good, so yes maybe I'm not doing it right.

Hi Shama,

I'm glad to hear that, you deserve it!

I'm trying to keep up, with everything, this class will make me a better therapist ,

Thank you,

DanielaSmile

I have no doubt that you will become a better and more versatile therapist with the addition of Thai Massage! Smile

By the way, I saw two more certification registrations from you show up although you had already registered back in August??

Complete Thai Massage,

Module 22 leg prone

This class was great. I enjoy doing this, is easy because, we use this techniques in our work for a while, I also practice on my partner,is a little challenge on a male partner. But I move slow, so we can finally have a stretch, little by little, the idea to bring up a different body position for the client so we can have a good stretch on more flexible ones is great. The sitting on the buttocks technique, reverse works fine but I"m careful.

HI Shama,

In my career yes I have the opportunity to work with the client, is very efficient for both sides, but unfortunately , is not that often,but I'm blessed ,to have a good place to work and also to help my private clients and myself with a great session,

Going slow and working into it gradually is certainly a much better way than trying full power versions too soon!

Complete Thai Massage,

Module 23 - Sacrum and Glutes

This class was great. All eyes on the Gluts, Sacrum, lower back, Stretches for the lower gluts, upper gluts. Thick muscle also powerful group, always work on them, so I"m very comfortable with this group, sacrum feels good if is done well, soft, hip is a big thing today, I enjoy the rocking, tapping, and soft, slow massage circular moves around the sacrum, the gluts can take more pressure, they are large and thick so always, check with the client  the pressure, rocking the gluts, lower back feels relax and easy, also the sitting on the gluts with your knee feels relax and they enjoyed by the client, my husband enjoy the gluts work, lower back, rocking,still struggle with transition, from one side to other side, I have to practice more the transition. By the way YOGA helps me a lot!

Hi Shama, 

All we want is to enjoy my work, to be able to do it easy, coming from my heart, and to help others, is so much work around anywhere.

Some clients, they think you are their god, some they never satisfied.

So I believe, I"m here for the ones who are here for me, the ones who they appreciate me , cheer me, adore , respect and then they will have back my full support, rest of them is not my problem, I can't change anybody, I"m grateful and blessed, I'm here to help, but it has to come from both ends.

I have this motto: "You can satisfy all of your clients some of the time, you can satisfy some of your clients all of the time,  but you can never satisfy all of your clients all of the time."  In short, we will never have a 100% success rate, and that's fine. We do our best, and that's all we can do. Most will love it, and some won't. That's life.

MODULE 24-Prone Back 1,

This class was great.

The first time I practice was difficult , to come back from the lower back up, to find the rhythm, was challenge I must say I have to come back, to review this one, the palm circle, the wiggle, up and down, off set wiggle all to warm up , the back, using this techniques, to be ready for the stretch.

I repeat this class more then others,it is important to use a variety of techniques, sometimes is the whole session, on the back so I will, make sure I have plenty , bullets. I can"t use all the techniques I will stick with the ones more suitable for me , I will make  sure I will be comfortable, then I can deliver. Over the spine I use soft Tapotament, just to increase the blood flow, my clients love the techniques, I maximize my practice, my husband so far so good!

Hi Shama,

I feel great!

I'm so thankful for this  class, for you !

I will concentrate on me for a while, I enjoyed, so far, it feels AMAZING!

So Thank you SHAMA!

Module 25- Prone Back 2

This class was great. It is important to know the back very well, is popular , almost everyone has, had , will have some back issue. So is great to know,more techniques, we do far side , focusing not to be on the spine, to go with your fingertips, on the erector muscle, to find out where is the tension. The leaning into the trapezius muscle feels good. The elbows are very well use on the back , more on the lower, middle back, finding the groove, on the far side of the spine. The technique with the knees, a bit challenge, the first is  gentle one feels good and relax,  second one is a little heavier, the third one I need to practice more. I need to find the right client, so I will use technique 1, 2. My husband , and my client feedback , it fells good, relax, they like it.

Hi Shama,

Is important for us to stay healthy, focus on that now, then I can take care of them!

Module 26 -Prone

This class was great. Is always helpful to learn how to preserve our body. This class focus more how to use less thumbs, wrist, apply more forearms, still depends on what kind the body you work on, and how we feel . I have been on top with practicing, feedback they like it, I enjoy more the butterfly over the back, galloping yes feels good ,is easy to do it.  The lower back technique  using the forearms, starting from the sacrum up, only to middle back is very helpful for the clients with lower back problem, the upper back, neck technique, using two hands, in two different direction feels good to. 

Hi Shama,

I start watching the videos bellow, yes is true Thai Massage is so complex!

I enjoy that, is good because we can see how they do it, I watch my coworkers to, they take so much pride, and they are so honored to be part of that culture which is Great!

Did you notice differences between what you have been learning in this course and what your coworkers who also practice Thai Massage are doing, or is it fairly similar?

Module 27,

This class was great! Focusing on the upper back, the techniques are great looking, not that easy to put this in action. Some are easy because I have been using them for a while now, the harder ones I practice more, kneading, wiggle, palm circle over the upper back they are all feeling great.  The ones with the stretches are very easy if you master them, I feel good when I practice, still I'm finding myself not comfortable with the ones with the knee down, trying to reach the other shoulder to rotate in a spinal stretch, did not work that well for me, so far is ok.

I'm confident will be better, by the way I can"t sit on my toes, I sit on my ankles is comfortable for me!

Hi Shama, 

My coworkers are great Thai ladies.

Is difficult to compare, never did. It looks the same , you are more softer, and little slower maybe because you teach !

They also believe in more pressure is better.

I am blessed to  work with them !

Covid 19 change our world so I need some time to watch them again, time is everything, and patience.

Thank you!

Module 28 - Summary

This class was Amazing!

I enjoy this so much. I have to be honest a did practice few times, did not work to well at first, still in puzzle mode. My partner like it,but still, it was about me,not that well. The first one was with the spinal twist, took me a while. The second struggle was triple hip and leg stretch, other one was the power version triangle stretch, Cobra was so good , the stronger version seems to be more beneficial . I enjoy more the summary, love to watch all the puzzle on the wall, looks easy , is easy if you MASTER,  so my own goal keep going forward, keep pushing on repetition, they like it so far the ones I have a chance to work on them!

Hi Shama, 

Thank you  this useful tip, on the client body posture. Sometimes is easy to skip this,but definitely important.

Also I  do appreciate the tips regarding the clients belongings, plus to be very comfortable to wear something, loose, and comfortable.

Side Position 1 - Module 29

This class was great! Side position is the way to go. Fortunately I have been working a lot on the side, is efficient, easy on both technician and client. The hip gets open, great to work with the elbow rolling, also great for inner thigh easy to reach , great leverage. The stretches are also great. The sitting on the side of the client leg has to be done slow it feels good but has to be done slow, I need to practice this technique more, looks easy but need more time, not reach the confidence level yet. My client and my husband feedback was fells great for the hip, they like it.

Hi Shama,

 Yes use more body weight , balance, slow, and breathing!

The sitting on the side of the leg is a great technique if done right, but it feels terrible if done too quickly! Laugh

Module 30- Side Position

This class was great. I mention this before, I really enjoy this, I have been practicing every day, it feels great when you confident, when you do it slowly. Yes is working great, stretches for the back , also the spinal rocking twist, feels good my husband like this one a lot, the stretches for the hip flexor, quats, I  have to practice, more, sometimes I feel comfortable, sometimes it feels difficult. 

Hi Shama,

Indeed feels great if we feel connected, enjoy,  easy, and have fun, client benefits too.

So far I'm doing ok. Not easy to keep up. One pose , one practice, keep going!

Complete Thai Massage ,

Module 31-Side Position,

This class was great. The work on the side is very effective for the shoulder. The technique with circular movement, also build in with stretches, it feels good , my husband like that. The one with more elements, takes more time, more practice, feels good and more easier after a few times to practice still more to do ..The connection with the whole body is so important.

Hi Shama, 

You are so right about THAILAND IS AMAZING. 

Is more than a massage, is a culture, history, ritual and food, I enjoy reading about that, I believe all countries have something unique, authentic, make them different, yet so beautiful so interesting.

By the way thank you for you compliment, means  the world to me.
