Mod 1

Hello Shama,

It was a great morning. And I watched the mod twice. I also downloaded and printed the transcript from mod 1.  I intend to do so with each mod.  Honestly, I have not been this excited to learn a new technique since becoming a massage therapist 11 years ago.  Perhaps, I will get to take a class or two in person in the next couple of years. Visiting Thailand would be a dream come true.

I am so pleased with your disposition.  You will be easy to learn from.  You are a pleasure to watch and your voice is pleasant as well.  I am a musician and consider myself especially sensitive to sound.  It is silly but if your voice was monotone or unpleasant I believe it would be a motivation killer. 

Anyhow, I plan to be diligent in my communication and posts to the forum as per instructed. Wink

I feel very blessed and excited to start my journey.

Your pupil,

Shelly

Hi Shelly, practicing non stop for 3 days would probably qualify you for the Guinness book of world records. Laugh

Regarding the transcripts, I just reworked the entire course, and I am still not sure about the transcripts. I just made one for the first module which has quite a lot of theoretical content which you can listen to, watch on video or read in a transcript. However most of the other videos are much more visual in nature and I don't know if transcripts would be of any use if you cannot see the technique like in the video.

The same goes for the audio only versions. I just now added those to all the modules in case someone wants to listen to the material on the go. However I am not sure if this is a feature which people will want to actually use.

I think I will send a survey to all our students and ask if they would like to have transcripts for all the videos or if they are not interested in such a feature. Please let me know what your take is on the transcripts and the audio only versions.

Thanks for the kudos about my voice! Smile

Also please take a minute and familiarize yourself with our certification check list here:

I have to say, your enthusiasm is infectious! Sounds like I am in for a treat of progress reports from you! Smile

Hello Shama,

I was in a bad car accident early March.  I am just now getting started again on the complete course. I will check in and share progress reports as I go through the mods. I will complete the mods in the given format in 3 day intervals. I look forward to starting over and completing the program.  The new site and mods and forum look great. 

 

Starting over,

Shelly aka Dusty
