Thai Knee Massage Module #1

I like how you introduced this first module explaining the anatomy of the knee. The hand positioning and the flow in the first two techniques are good. I was able to do them without too much concentration.  Now all I need do for this module is memorize the anatomy and practice.

Thai Knee Massage Module #2

From practicing the other modules, I am able to maneuver through these techniques much easier.  The rocking and wiggling techniques are different but flow well together. I can understand why warming the knee is important. Also, I must remember to lean in and not use muscle strength. I will continue to practice.

Once you got the basics down, learning new techniques, or new ways of using old techniques, is not so difficult anymore. After some time you will get into a 'flow' state where you spontaneously figure out what works and even create new techniques on your own. That's what happened to me many times, and that's how I came up with so many techniques that you cannot learn in traditional Thai Massage.

Thai Knee Massage Module #3

I was able to perform these techniques using the rocking movement along with the fingers and heel of the hand fairly quickly. However, understanding how to work with the energy lines was not so easy, new to me. And of course, I will practice until I know what I am doing and with an even flow. I will also remember that I must work on the energy lines and not just the spot where the pain is, being mindful of the degree of pain the person is having. I learned a lot from your explanations as to what takes place with the entire energy system of the leg.

I am glad that you took to the holistic concept of relating to more than a specific pain point in Thai Massage. This is where Thai Massage can be quite different from western massage.

Thai Knee Massage Module #4

I found the techniques in this module not to be too challenging. However, the positioning of my body for the various techniques took a fair amount of effort. But after practicing I became more comfortable.  I must say that using the forearm came as a bit of a surprise. I will continue to practice until I have a smooth flow, and only use when there is a knee problem.

True, not many people could imagine that you can use your forearm for knee therapy work. But it works fine and relieves your hands.

Thai Knee Massage Module #5

The Techniques in this module were not difficult for me.  Practicing the techniques in the other modules helped me maneuver through these techniques well. I must admit that the knee and forearm did come as a surprise but I was able to do both techniques without difficulty. Shama, thank you for emphasizing not to apply these techniques to someone that does not have knee problems. I enjoyed the training and will continue to practice all of the modules.

It sounds like you were breezing through this program. The fact is that once you have a foundation, it is not so difficult to build on it. I sent you your certificate already.
