Thai Shoulder Module - 9

This course was wonderful. The shoulder mechanisms became so much closer to me in many ways. Yes, I check my own leverage and anatomy all the time as I need to find the right match. The trick is to sink in slowly and not allow yourself to fall in (using the knee for instance). hat would be very counterproductive. I enjoyed just sitting back and watching the flow in the Video. Of course there is no way for me not to start my own routine after watching.

This course is just so incredibly good and creative. At the end the way all is put together inspires me to practice even more. I am indeed not being done with this as my windy mind needs practice to ground the energies.

This study was just to beautiful and I don't want to forget anything. Practically, when I have for instance an insurance client, and there is only one hour time at work, so much gets lost in the shuffle I have to decide too quickly what to do. I prefer to have open ended sessions so I can slow down and the short timing is not so much pressuring me. It is really important to practice with friends and relatives as in this way I can explore, be slow, integrate the leverage, the breath, the Hara, the ideation, the meditation, the Qi, and also make sure I develop my balance in an anatomically for me right way.

Thank you! I still will take the test next week for CEU-credits... 

I will have to take many more classes even as repeats from you.

Last week, I went through some old notes from Thai Massage I took in Florida, and after taking your class the old notes were as if new, and I picked so much wisdom out of it. I notice that many practitioners and teachers have a certain spiritual longing and devotion in their application and i consider this a huge plus. I appreciate all the wisdom coming through.

Namaste and Best Wishes!

Luckily I could always do open-ended sessions, and most of the time I went over the time I was getting paid for in my sessions, but that never bothered me. I got my satisfaction out of doing the best job I could rather than getting paid for every minute I worked.

Do you want me to send you an International certificate, or do you just want the CE certificate (for which the NCBTMB insists that you do the multiple choice test), or both?

Yes, I so hear you. One has to plan a little to do the limited 1 hour insurance session based on codes and charting. I am always surprised how happy the clients are anyway. A lot of people are rather easy to help and to please, especially when actual pain is truly reduced. I also worked on people with PDS and these people have special issues. Too long of a session can be too over-stimulating bringing up too much emotional memory. People are so different.

I think I myself prefer longer sessions like in Thailand. 

When I am working from home my Thai sessions are always open ended. I just worked 2 1/2 hours mainly on the knee (using your knee class instruction was of great help), integrating the back a bit as well and ending in the heavenly head massage and the session "felt special and amazing" for the giver and the receiver... so I got told. That to me is the best of satisfactions too. I give and develop what I also like to receive. When one receives good bodywork one tends to get a refined taste for more and longer sessions.

I am working on my CEU-Test. So for that I enjoy re-watching some of your videos again, to remember what the questions were about, which I greatly enjoy. Some questions I can answer without watching again but not all. Since the videos need to be re-watched again anyway, it will take me a few days still till I am done.

I so enjoy the process. I write you when I am done. Be well.

Okay, I will wait to hear from you about the certificates.

I agree with you, I have definitely developed a taste for longer sessions, provided the therapist is good.
