Namaste and thank you If you ever come to Croatia, you are more than welcome to visit me.
In this module I practiced on a girl who was out of workout, after giving birth she didn't train and her body is really stiff. I checked her hips and direction of feet, and one was more open. In warming up, she mentioned in moves of traction that she has a little pain in the lumbar spine, I was talking to her during movements so I could explore her range of movement and feeling inside. After warming up, I worked on "Hip Pie".
The most pleasant and releasing move for her was this HIP LIFT CROS PULL STRETCH - and CIRCULAR HIP LIFT - she said it felt amazing.
Twisting moves, I did rocking twist - and she really liked it, and gentle variation of "HIP PIE" 270 degrees.
BLOOD stop she felt the warmth in her legs after releasing.
What was an interesting experience for me and her is that she had spinal problems and I told her that even with this leg and hip wor we can release the spine. So in that work, from warming up and traction and all these hip and leg moves, she was aware of the connection between her different spine regions and a specific move I was doing. The more I was going up to her legs, she felt a higher region of her spine.
After this practice, she felt lighter in her body with better body posture and a clearer mind.
Thank you 🙂
That is what I most like about this course and your way of teaching. Simple but holistic I feel that Thai massage is like a synthesis of all my usual work and principles, all in one - work with energy, breath, acupressure, and movement
Usually, I tell my students that we can't see the body as mechanics as modern medicine does, we try to see it as a plant.
The whole leg "sequence" I tried on 1 of my clients. Her words are:
After health problems that lasted for almost two months, which in translation means two months of rest and minimal movement, I felt sluggish and without energy. The logical next step was to call Leo and arrange a treatment.
That same evening I already felt better, and in the morning I was “like new”. Just full of energy and strength and it continued now and for days after the treatment. Leo first started from the feet to which he paid a lot of attention and relieved the weight I felt in my legs, but also my whole body. He stretched all my muscles and paid special attention to the parts of my body that he thought needed more work. I have to admit that it was a very pleasant experience, but I didn't expect anything less because I have complete confidence in him. Here and now, I feel great. This was the first time, but certainly not the last 🙂 M.P.
Thank you 🙂
