#1 course: I was usually evaluate the hips with palming feet and alternated flexion of the feet as you do even with the helicoptere mouvement. I just like your second trick to look at the feet to evaluate the angle of it. I tested it and it’s work 🙂

#2 course: For the rocking release, I was just working on a man (the woman then I had didn’t specify a hip problem and just want a initiation massage) and it’s was ok to use the hand palm. He wasn’t unconfortable. Maybe of my western formation in swedish, I didn’t remember that the rocking works well.

#3 course: I didn’t learn that much techniques for the tights in Lotus Palm. Your techniques are great with the forearm or even rolling pine or the knee. It’s fun to pratice it. I didn’t try with the foot wet.

I did these 3 courses on May 29th but I wasn’t sure for the forum.

Hi Genevieve, welcome again to the Thai Hip Therapy course and our forum. Please take a moment and read our certification check list here:

Certification Check List

I already made some changes. Your forum display name has to be the same name as in your certification registration, otherwise it is too difficult to find people in a huge forum. (step 1 in the check list)

Also every module is supposed to be a separate post.

I am glad that you are finding some useful material in the course and that you have fun practicing it. Smile

Friday, I had the chance to work on a client with hips problem. He receive a big job on this part and I was making the follow up yesturday, he said that’s is very fine and loose but he need medications maybe because he was tigh so long. I pratice the slice 0, 1 and 2 ans add some thatI’ve already learn. He was gratefull. It was quite hard when he doesn’t leting go.

Module 5: 

I find out quite hard to keep the balance when we are lean and roll with the knee. Do you have a trick or it’s only balance?

I think that your blood stop it’s easier than one I’ve learn form school. we were laying in downyard dog on both legs and it’s was hard to don’t miss the spot.

I have find out that people love the rocking! Thanks to you 🙂

Hi Genevieve, yes, your display name is correct now because I changed it from Genevievemasso to Genevieve Bessette so that it matches your certification registration. Smile

I don’t like the bloodstop with both hands, it is not good for your wrists and it is just harder to do.

For the balance I suggest you watch this video which has some tips for that:

Thank you to make the change for me 🙂 

The trick is awesome! Don’t worry, I’ll pratice it!

Module 6: 

In fact, I had client who were experimenting pain in the groin area when I did knee to chest and I didn’t know how to deal with it! I was already experimenting the knee to chest and the other shoulder as a massage therapist and the second works even in the glute too. I just love your rocking variations and even I could be a small therapist for some of my clients. lol

Yes, those rocking variations can make all the difference. I can’t even imagine working without them. Smile

Module 7: 

I’ve found that slice #6 was quite difficult if someone is less flexible than me but rocking still saved me. 🙂

For the slice #8, it was just fun for me! Thanks for the scale! Now, my male clients know now when to stop endure and is not a fact as no pain no gain.

I still use the one to ten scale after so many years of experience. It is a really useful tool!

Module 8: 

This morning, this module was very effective. I did few mobilisations but the tension was really on the side of the hip. After scooping, circling and “galloping”, the tension was diminish by 2/3. But it’s true what you said about to have the habilety to remember and use some techniques more than the others. Perhaps we have the videos to review the a little bit more that you forget.

module 9: 

OMG! this technique is awesome! This way to work on the side of the hip (I’m sorry, I don’t remember the name in english :-/) I use even in my swedish massage and it’s also effective. For the technique when the client is on the stomach, sometimes it’s hard to bring the leg in 90 degre angle because they’re so stiff in the hips. I do want I can 🙂

Thanks for sharing those techniques. I have few requests to continue my specialisation 😀

Module 10: 

I tried the rotation with one leg fold only one time but I didn’t figured out the feeling of the rotation. I won’t stop trying, don’t worry. Maybe my position wasn’t right because my leg was on her foot instead of blocking. I’ve already knew the one when the client is on their stomach and you lift the leg.

But the one when you do the reverse tree (that’s how I see it) is quite a strong stretch. I was too rough the first time :-/ 

Do you think that the prone straight leg lift can be to ground someone too? I had a part in ayurveda when I was taking my level 3 and 4 in Lotus Palm?

I never thought of this particular move as grounding. But then again, the entire Thai Massage experience could be thought of as grounding. The prone straight leg lift can be quite strong and you have to be careful with it not to overdo it.

Module 11: 

I don’t know why I didn’t thought about the flip when you are in prone position and then you flip into the side position. I knew only the one to flip the back position to the belly one and reverse. 

The stretch for the hip is stronger of what I did before. Thanks for this one!

I just love the recap that you did because it ‘s make a good review of what we’ve learned. Thanks for that!

Thank you for this gift to learning more about thai massage. I will be back 😀 I’will send the email.
