Module 10:

The more I practice the clearer it becomes that this would be a difficult modality for anyone who does not have rhythm! 🙂 Luckily I have years of dance history that help facilitate learning these techniques. Not only having rhythm but choreography in dance and memorizing martial arts techniques all help! I love the lean in as exhale, lean out inhale, pressure variations of all of this, as well as the start slow, speed up and fade out aspects. I've been looking forward to these back techniques and they don't disappoint. I've practiced a bit on my husband attempting to make it smooth especially when going from one side to the other. I'm not as agile as I used to be.

He especially enjoyed rocking while one hand goes up and down the side of the spine and the circle right on the sacrum with both hands. I didn't try the knees on the bum one yet but I think I can figure it out. I like the glute one especially when using thumbs. It all just takes practice and I have less practice partners now due to a Covid increase in our county. People are less likely to go for bodywork even though I follow all protocols for safety and am fully vaccinated and boosted and use a mask. That will change though and I still have a core of clients/friends who come.

I've also watched and been working on the Module 11 and will practice some more with that and put in my notes in the next few days.

"Luckily I have years of dance history that help facilitate learning these techniques.

There is a good chance that this helped me to create the Thai Rocking Massage course in some way. Although I hadn't thought about it in this way, after reading your post, it makes sense to me. Smile

Module 11:

1st technique similar to last technique on Module 10. The difference I see is more of a push away from spine on the erectors rather than a straight down press on the erectors?

Moving the hands in opposite directions feels great according to my husband. 🙂

Circles slow and fast on the shoulder blade also nice.

Using the fingertips, side hand, and heel of palm in the laminar groove using the rhythm, weight, lean, etc. all nice. As is the fingertip circles.

Scapular technique takes a bit more finesse for me to get the right position. Nice way to get under the scapular. One of my favorite spots to have work done on me!

Spinal twist, shoulder circle/rock technique also nice. I've used something similar in a side lying position.

All great techniques that I'm enjoying incorporating into my practice as I become more fluid with their execution. More tools in the toolbox. 🙂

Thanks so much for putting together all of these wonderful learning packages on line. Such a great resource!

Namaste,

Gayle
