Module #12   Hip Stretches

  This is my partner's  (my fiance) favorite massage her. The Hips. She has so many issues with her hips. She like the version #1 of the Achilles Tendon stretch. But loved Version #2 of that stretch using 1-2-3-2-1 on her feet do to she works on her feet all day. So I can see this very beneficial for those on there feet all day. 1. Massage the arch with the 1-2-3-2-1 movement. 2. As you stretch the calf as you massage the Arch.

Version #4 of this she really loved the compression and traction of the hips. She said that felt very good. As i moved in closer to her and bent her knees she like the Knees apart as i lean down.She loves that stretch. 

One of my questions i ask my clients is how to they sleep at night Back, Side or stomach? In which i try to get all my clients to sleep on there back. with a pillow under there knees to tilt the pelvic to take the pressure off L4 in the spine if have lower back pain. And to take pressure off there sciatic nerve that's coming out at that area.  She does sleep on her back with pillow under her knees but pulls her feet up under the pillow instead of straight down. I can see how the ball of her femur must be rotated or tilted in the hip joint with her sleeping this way for a long period of time without moving will cause any tear, stuffiness in the IT bands.??  Because bringing her feet up to the front of my legs and lean down she REALLY loves . All of those Elephant walk on knees for Sacrum massage, and Hip and Piriforms stretch, and Sandwich Stretch, she wanted me to NOT stop. Excellent session. Thank YOU

How great to have skills that make your fiancee happy and help with her problems.

If she is on her feet all day long, you might want to consider enrolling in our Thai Foot Massage course which has some really amazing techniques. She will be eternally grateful! Laugh

Module #14 Hip Rocking

   Hi Shama,

      Nice module good way to help relax client. I'm a very short person and also had a very bad knee that pops in and out.Frown So I finding moveing over to transfer to other side or transferring to side of bad knee i have to put my hand down on mat to take pressure off that knee.

I'm finding that very helpful. If not i find myself taking my hands off client to make transfer. Seems to work pretty good that way and still keep at least one hand with contact.

  Also using the Half back stretch with there leg bent and holding there knee down as you pull and lean back works for me best being a short person.

 

 Thanks again Shama

We all have to work within our capacity and limitations. Your Thai Massage doesn't have to be the exactly like I do it. It just has to feel good and be effective. If you have to support yourself with one hand while transitioning, that's no problem at all.

Unlike with Swedish massage, in Thai Massage we always have to adjust for size and weight of both ourselves and our clients. That means it needs to be creative and intuitive in order to work best. Apparently that's just what you are doing! Smile

Module #15 Abdomen ans Chest

  I like the way you do the abdomen and chest area. I work my normal western massage basically the same way on the abdominal area as you do. Moving my hands clockwise. A very effective way if the person is constipated. I have worked on nurses the work in nursing homes and showed them this move on the abdominal area and it will help break up there patience constipation in stead of laxative.

  I like the concept of the Abdominal area as the center or where people hold there emotions in this area. In my Reiki work i do this is your Root Chakra and yes i look at your Root Chakra the root of you and where you came from, how you were raised family issues.

   Love the Elephant Walk on Shoulders; Very relaxing.

Thanks ShamaSmile

Module #16 Shoulder

  I like Tec: "One side one Hand Shoulder lift" (sliding) Very good tec. you can see how it really id a good massage on the shoulder at the same time as you lean back you get contraction on the neck as you lean back to left shoulder. I had a stiff neck over the weekend and had my fiancee do this to me fantastic on my shoulder and neck.

  The two handed shoulder left (circling) was a nice way to finish massaging that area.

  Arm triangle shoulder stretch was kind of uncomfortable for her wrist just not flexible to place on the floor palm down. So what should you do to help get the wrist more flexible??? She has very tight wrist.

 

Thanks

Module #17 Arms and Hands

 

  Tec: Alternating circular Elephant Walking down arm, nice touch to the arm.  Love the Slide off palm tec. to finish off the Elephant walking down arms.

The Tec: Working the 3 lines on the arm top of arm and bottom of arm I'm going to arm to my western massage with oil very nice way to work the 3 sen lines.

I"m also part of a Wellness program for a very large cementing company here in Duncan Oklahoma. called Halliburton you may have heard of it International corp. Anyway i go in once a week in there nursing clinic and do chair massage as a stress management program. I do simular hand massage on them as they seat on the chair. I'm going to change my tec:  and add your tec: of Squeezing and bending palms together. And adding the Four Finger traction pull to finish off the hands in my chair massage.

A little in side stroy about me on why i started massage. Kind of funny thing back in 1999 i got laid-off from this company (Halliburton) for working with them for 25 years. I went to a massage weekend clinic here in my local town they were introducing there massage collage to get certified in massage. And what turned me on was there hand massage. It was AMAZING it brought tears to my eyes cares it felt so good. so to me a good hand is the best healing thing for the body. Especially for a MT that use there hands all day. and now here i am they called me back to there company to help there employees with stress. I call it a God calling for me.

Thanks  Dean Samuels LMT

Regarding the triangle stretch - you can place her hand closer to her shoulder which will reduce the angle in the wrist. You can also use several hand techniques to increase flexibility in the wrist. Some of those are in this course, and even more are in our Arm And Hand Massage course.

That's quite an interesting story about your involvement with Halliburton! Smile
