Module 9;Heidi Mitrus Thai foot massage progress notes;

When I practiced the techniques for module 9,I also was experimenting with intention and pacing,as some of the moves were already familiar to me.I found that,depending on your intention and pacing, these techniques could be super relaxing/trance-inducing or more movement -focused and playful.Something for everyone and every situation.

Extending the moves up the leg and including the knee seemed a natural extension to me for a more complete session.The work along the Tibialis and around the knee were very appreciated by my practice partner,who hadn't realized how much tension /tightness was in her tibialis muscle.

I really liked how you blocked the foot for gastrocs work. I hadn't tried that before,as I usually have held the foot in place by gently placing my knee or side of my hip on their dorsum, but that sometimes presents an ergonomically compromised body position for me. I feel the way you have taught is more straight forward and frees my body up for more participation in each stroke.

Module 10; Heidi Mitrus Thai Foot massage progress notes;

i enjoyed learning all of the percussive moves to energize the feet,especially the slapping technique .. And all the ways in which you can use the towel to continue the massage while wiping off the oil is such a nice touch. I was playing around with these percussive moves and found a nice way to get a whole bunch of movement for the foot.I used my thumbs, flat part of my knuckles and outside edge of my hand (all were effective( along either side of the lateral heel and did a rapid up and down.with hands opposing to get a great 'waggle'for the foot and toes. Lots of funCool

I appreciated watching you perform a sample session,as i have been thinking about how i would like to put theses skills together.My foot technique toolbox is very full, and I'm ready to roll! I passed the CE exam with a 98Smile

A big Thank You to you, Shama, and to Rasami for the excellent instruction!

Module 10 HEidi Mitrus Thai foot massage progress notes;

After reviewing my post,I realized in describing my 'waggle' move, I left out an important part-what the other hand is doing...one hand on lateral side of heel, one hand on medial side of heel. moving rapidly up and down in opposition.lol...'I'm sure that clarification doesn't matter to anyone but me,but still felt to post my correctionCool
