I completed the first module today on the arm and hand massage so continue to add in more tools. I am doing some arm now but glad to acquire additional techniques. Hands are a different story. Up until now I have not done anything with hands so look forward to the 2nd module.

Then you have 43 minutes of hand work to look forward to. It's a big module with lots of ways to work on hands and wrists.

I Completed the 43 minute hand video. I am not sure at this point if I will ever do a complete hand massage but many good techniques to incorporate into sessions. Thanks Shama. Now I have to decide what to take next. 

      I know you don't have a CEU quiz for the this but do you send out an international certificate on these courses for the specific hours shown? I plan to work my way through all of the courses and also submit for the RTT cert. I do not have to deal with the Texas massage folks as the RMT's do. Just looking at adding the RTT to my RYT. Hoe do you document those that don't have a test yet? I will take them regardless but being able to count the hours is a plus too.

We can definitely work something out with the certificate so that you can document the hours. Regarding CEUs, I have to figure something out. The NCBTMB just came out with a new program where they charge $25.- per course to review it on top of their membership fee. They did not do this before. That would cost me hundreds of dollars for all my courses. So now I am thinking of combining a bunch of my smaller courses into a bigger package and offer the CEUs for that which would be a lot more cost effective for me.

Especially since you want to work your way through more courses, I will definitely document your hours. With the International Certificate that's easy enough since this is my own project. With the CEUs I have to follow someone else's rules and do it correctly in case the NCBTMB ever audits my records. So I have to work on that a bit more.

However you wish. As soon as I have the money on Friday, I will sign up for my next course. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here. I know it is not a Thai holiday but do you celebrate Thanksgiving. I know you have some Austin roots.

I don't exactly celebrate it since I still keep on working. But I am well aware of it since I work with so many people from the US who are sending me messages about it. The Thais have a different system of thanksgiving. They call it "merit", and it consists of offering flowers, incense and candles to various shrines. The concept is not exactly the same, but it is related.

If I understand your post correctly, the International certificate would be good enough for you for various smaller courses. If so, that makes it easier for me to work it out, since I can make or bend my own rules about that, which I cannot do with the CE certificates.

Looking forward to working with you again soon!
