MODULE 1 &2

Hi , happy to  be  here posting my first experience.

My clients are much more flexible and easy to deal with since, I started relaxing us both before therapy.I am not using strength and now can perform effortlessly. They are leaving much more relaxed.

Thanks MuchSmile

MODULE 3  FEET

I practiced  on my son today and realized that feet keep a lot of tension. I experienced some discomfort an realized I was not working with my entire body...after focusing and breathing, I felt the sole soften.

There was a sigh of release and he said , this is better than a massage, my back feels great.

I am going to work on my feet although it would not be the same. I am enjoying the body response. 

Working on my friend today who has foot problems and I am very excited.

Hi Glenda, I edited your last post so that it only refers to module 3 and you can continue from there.

I am glad to hear that you are getting positive feedback right in the beginning of your practice already. That's a good start!

MODULE 4-FEET

Well, I have been more focused this week and movements are flowing better.I realize that there are many ways to work on the feet  and relax the body .

I can work more efficiently because I am using a rocking movement  and not shoulders.

My friend also felt the difference in pressure.This is not as difficult as I thought.

Thanks

Glenda

MODULE 5-WARM UP

I would like to understand the reason for beginning at the thigh and not the calf.

I used alot of pressing on legs and the muscles were much softer because they were not tense.

T he warm up of muscles was very interesting.

Looks like you are finding your "forum groove"! Smile

Don't look at the techniques as a fixed sequence, but rather as options to choose from. Once you learn a bunch of techniques, the real art is to combine them creatively according to what the client needs and what works best on a particular client. There is no rule that you have to start at the thighs versus the lower leg. There is usually a lot more happening in the upper half of the leg since there are so many muscles and the hip is directly affected by them. However it is perfectly ok to start with the lower leg and work your way up. 

Often I go directly to the upper leg when I see that there is a hip issue. The sequence of the techniques is necessary for learning them, but don't get stuck thinking that this is the only way of doing it.
