Module 1  Loved the diagnosis and observation of hip imbalance.  

Module 2.  The rocking techniques are wonderful, love them all.  This is so helpful, looking at what part of the hip and what part of quads are effected.  The different approaches for each side, give plenty of variety to work with clients with compromised hip movement.  Especially using alternative body parts to save hand and to assist working with larger clients who may need deeper work.  So comprehensive, learnt heaps already.  Thanks shama.

Module 3.  Using the different body parts on the thigh muscles that connect into the hip and affect mobility.  Great reminders about ergonomics, great variation on working on both sides of the thigh.It is all flowing nicely and I am getting a great understanding of how to counteract tightness and what level to use according to the client’s condition and physical size, flexibility and pain threshold.

Module 4.  Love the pie.  This was an inspiring module.  I started implementing the pie positions into my yoga routine and gained an incredible workout to hips.  Felt amazing afterwards.  This is a great module.  The traction is also a great benefit when trying to ease long term gravity and compression issues. The techniques to relax tight thigh muscles are great.  Favorite Module so far.Cool

That was one of those posts that make my day! I love to observe how students progress and grow with the training, and how they successfully implement it not only in Thai Massage practice, but also in other modalities as well as in yoga.

Module 5 Tight adductors, using heel of hand, forearm, knee variations, fingers to feel blockages, then the slow down of blood for a flush of energy flow to leg.Bit tricky, need to be focused and aware. Extending the pie to 135 degrees and great ways to slowly increase flexibility with circling, rocking then the power versions.  Another great module.

 

Module 6.  180 degrees, and how to relax tightness and restriction with focused work on areas under pressure by stretches. Loosen before stretches reinforced. Considerations between female and male clients with stretching in this pie area, zig zag wiggling, very effective. Variations for smaller and larger people with the “both legs stretch variations” also a great module.  Looking forward to the next module.

You are building on a good basis which you already established. If I got my facts straight, this is your 7th course with me. You should be sailing through this one with flying colors! Smile

Module7 Opposite shoulder, moving through the pie.  Great variations, what to use for different body types and ranges of flexibility.  This is amazing Shama, you are giving us such versatility as therapists.Circling, rocking, really like the just rocking the leg and letting it fall into the stretch, great. Part 7 of the pie, some grat variations again fro the stiff right up to the super yogi.  I found the VERY POWERFUL almost twist with the clients leg crossed over the opposite knee quite tricky, need to be very observant and I have not mastered this yet. Slice 8, the hip rotation stretch positions. bringing in the forearm and hand then both forearms and finally the Rocking with both forearms,  Love this.  The last power circling move is a multi pie movement and requires observance and plenty of feedback from client but very good.

Module 8.  Side position, of course all the cushioning and supporting for this position, I am familiar with this, butterfly, palm circling, galloping butterfly, squeez lift and roll, thumb scooping, thumb circling – finding the problem areas then rocking , bringing in the knuckles with all variations for different ranges of pressure and client to therapist ratio.  Again another great module.  getting closer to the end now, only a few more to work through. Enjoying the Hip module as always with your courses Shama.Smile

I am getting a lot of positive comments about the hip pie concept. This seems to really resonate with many people. Sure beats trying to memorize a mechanical routine! Smile

Module9 Continuing on Side position. great variations, different body parts to work on the glutes, medius and maximus, elbow rolling and pulling back on the area at top of Quadriceps femoris, hand over hand fingertip circling and scooping in this area to loosen up, then back to the glutes. Changing sides and using most of the techniques but making it a bit easier to get into the front of the hip.  Knee really only works from the back though.  Percussion to relax the area after strong stretches, then the PRONE versions of working on the lifted hip.  Great

Module 10.  Hip flexor work, circular hip rotation, with a reminder that the client has to do the strengthening work to assist weakened muscles due to sitting and lifetstyle  Prone opposite leg lift, knee version, prone angled leg hip stretch, straight leg lift, sitting on client in the two variations. very strong stretch.  Grat

 

Module 11, the last.  Double foot hip stretch is great.  Moving the client passively from prone to sideways for the Hip flexor stretch in side position with its variations then one of my favroutie parts of your courses, watching you work quietly and attentively demonstrating a creative choice of movements put together by you.  Great course.  So beneficial, looking forward to including this work with my clients.  thanks again Shama, love your work.Cool kind regards Lynney
