I like to call this opposite direction of stretching a body balancing method. Its fantastic as a great education concept for those who suffer from over use discomfort and postural maladies. These are a great whole person approach which fits so neatly into the holistic approach Thai Massage follows. So many different approaches to reach the health goals of ourselves and our clients.
Understanding the bigger picture when working with clients is invaluable. Everyone wishes to get better and have their symptoms remedied. However, lifestyle choices, circumstances, genetics, or simply their willingness to do what is necessary to achieve these goals may get in the way. Any number or one of these can create a new story or require a different path to achieve their goals. The variety of techniques and progressive nature of them allow for us to adjust our sessions accordingly but we still can only do what is within our power. Even if that means offering a temporary relief of pain after a painful spinal fusion surgery, or helping someone sleep comfortably who has suffered from chronic pain induced insomnia. We can not "fix" people, but we can educate, understand, and guide them into better health.

I think this module has the most that needs to be practiced of them all. Without these transitional moves the sessions become spotty and mechanical. These movements for clients offer smooth transitions that tie together our techniques and create the flow that keeps energy moving for both the practitioner and the client and between them both as well! With these under our belt, the sessions become much more fluid and keep the client comfortable throughout which allows for greater success and achieves more sought after results. The power of intention is evident and setting a positive and healthy intent at the start of each session is invaluable as a gift to each client as the individuals they are.
Thank you so much for putting together this course. Seeing, practicing, and discussing these skills and topics have been a highlight of my life during what has proven to be a trying time for so many. I have several waiting for me to tailor their next sessions already and look forward to sharing this gift with the world.
Forever Grateful... Many Blessings,
