Hi Justin, welcome to the Complete Thai Massage certification program. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with our certification checklist to make sure that it is all correctly organized:
Please pay attention to sections 5, 6, and 7 in the checklist. Also please fill in your bio section in the forum profile so that I have an idea about your background in order to be able to relate to you better.
That's understandable, and it has happened to quite a few of our students who were not familiar with forums. But soon it will become second nature!
It would probably be a good idea to look at a few of the threads in this forum to see how it's supposed to look like, then you don't have to 'reinvent the wheel'.
Anyway, I am here to assist you whenever needed, so I will try my best to steer you around the confusion.
I looked at a couple of the forums. I understand now. Although, I have a couple questions about the bio.. I can't seem to find it anywhere. Where do I put all of the information that you're requesting. Also, should I start over and post two more posts for module 1 and 2?
For the bio click on the red member icon. That will take you to the bio section. Then click on 'edit member profile'. I think that's what you will see. The wording might be a bit different because I as the administrator get to see some extra options that you might not see.
Regarding your first post, I will redesignate it as for module 1 only and leave the text as it is. Then just create a new post for module 2 and write something about your practice experience with it.
I see it on the top left next to your name, but it might show up in a different place for you. It's definitely there somewhere. Scroll up and down a bit and click around a bit, and when you find it, let me know where it shows up for you.
It also depends on what kind of device you are on. You see most on computers/laptops. Sometimes certain options are harder to find on smaller devices or don't show up at all.
Actually both the red icon on the left and the 'profile' button on the top right should lead you to the same place. Anyway, glad you found it, and thanks for filling in your bio. 'Highly successful' with your massage career - that's fantastic! I am happy to hear this. I hope that you can become even more successful, inspired and effective with the help of this course!
I'm curious about the leg stretch part. I may be wrong but, when someone does thai massage, are they not trying to benefit from it as well? Meaning shouldn't they take a deeper lunge in order to get a quad stretch for themselves. Like I said, I may be wrong. Just curious.
I did the chi machine on my girlfriend. After 5 minutes I stopped and she started smiling. lol. It was priceless. I showed her how to do it. I know why she was smiling. It feels incredible and it's so simple.
I also tried this on the table while my client was supine at the end of his session. I asked for his feedback on how he felt afterwards and started explaining to me the exact things that you were saying in your module. Really awesome.
Yes, Thai Massage is supposed to be beneficial for both the client and the therapist. There is a section about this topic in this article:
