I have watched Module 1 and liked it especially the part of the video where informs the student to connect the breath with your own body and the recipient's body so a synergistic energy body, mind and heart connection happens between both! This is what I would call 'Meditation Thai Massage in Action'.  This is what real massage is!

Hi Francisco, welcome to the Complete Thai Massage certification program. I read your bio, and yes, you might not be able to keep up with practicing while you are traveling. But this doesn't matter - you can go at your own pace. The main thing is that you got started. And it doesn't matter how long it takes you. You own the course for life now.

We have other course members who got started while traveling in Asia and ended up doing very well with it. One example is Trina Shultz, who took the hip therapy course while traveling in Cambodia with her teenage children whom she used as her guinea pigs.

By the way, I used to live in Spain and speak pretty fluent Spanish as well. I just had the Complete Thai Massage course subtitled in Spanish - not that you would need that. Smile The translator is from Chile, and the subtitler from Mexico. We have an international team.

Also please take a moment and familiarize yourself with our certification checklist to make sure that it is all correctly organized:

I am glad you like the "meditation Thai Massage in action". You will hear a lot more about that.

Module 2

I was lucky to be able to practice the "Chi Machine" technique on two children. I had no issues regarding the position of my sitting posture as I sit a lot like that. I found it easy to move their whole body sideways as you show in the video. This could have been as they are smaller that an adult though I focused on the right posture and effortless motion with my hips like a dancing flow just for a couple of minutes each child. One child was six years young and the other eleven. 

I hope to practice on an adult soon as this could make a big difference in my practising this technique better! The feedback was good though the older child said he felt a bit weird! I certainly was very aware of not using muscle movement just body posture flow. 

It is interesting to note that I don't recall receiving this technique from any Thai masseur/masseuse or from any other massage style but from a machine in one of the health retreats centres in Koh Samui that I have my detox time!! And I used it last year for my my first time ever.

Btw, do I have everything correctly organized? And you're right it is going to be quite challenging for me to keep my practice while traveling especially as I travel alone. What can I say? I will do my best as I really like Thai masaage.

Yes, you have it organized, although you double-quoted my previous post in this one. No problem, I deleted all the duplication. Smile

Children might feel 'weird' since they don't understand the therapeutic value of what you are doing. They are also generally not so stiff and locked up as adults, so this technique doesn't benefit them as much as it does adults. However it can be more challenging to do this on adults because they can be so locked up that they are unconsciously resisting it.

Just do what you can while traveling. You don't have to keep up with it. The course won't be going anywhere, and neither will I! Laugh

So, will it be ok to report my practices with every lesson a bit over the three-day line, even if its a week or more?  I know that I may accumulate some lessons but I will only send you the following one that I have watched and practiced.

You receive one module every three days (and a bunch of other material in between), but that doesn't mean that you need to write a post every three days. Just write a post whenever you get around to actually practicing a new module, so that you have some real-life experience with it. It's okay, even if you can only get to one module every week for the time being.

Of course if you leave too much time in between modules, chances are that you will forget quite a bit of the material, especially in the beginning. But you can always get back to it later when you have more time. That's the good thing about this course. You can always re-watch and re-read the modules.
