Module #33 and #34 was the Thai massage I was more familiar with from the start...the seated exercises.  Somehow it seems though that throughout this course we have blossomed from what we "thought" we knew to so much more.  You were able to show us that may have been "familiar" is such a small part of what Thai Massage is and can be.

Since you mentioned that there was a lot of shoulder work in recent modules - actually there is so much shoulder work that can be done in Thai Massage that I created an entire course exclusively about shoulder work which takes the training to an even higher level!

Although the seated techniques are well known in Thai Massage, they are really the least essential ones and I use them much less than the other positions. They have their place, but they are often difficult for stiff westerners who cannot comfortably sit cross-legged. For the Asian folks this is a lot easier since they are much more flexible in general, especially in their hips.
