Shama,

       Absolutely love the hands-free thai and guess it was what attracted me to thai as much as anything. Coming from a yoga background, I was familiar with assists and using the body to stretch someone a bit deeper but using feet, elbows and other body parts had not entered my mind. The flow and breath work also came naturally. I like the sense of connectedness I have come to feel using my entire body as a tool box. This is what makes Thai truly unique to me. In module one, I found some review but as always some new content to digest. I hope at some point to be able to skillfully teach these types of techniques to other massage therapists to extend their careers and practice.

P.S. I saw your note on posts. I’m not trying to get any set amount but I am enjoying your courses and the dialog. I wish, as I am sure was one of your intentions, to see other thai therapists discussing techniques and approaches for the sake of the group. Maybe that will happen more over time. I think this is actually my 70th post but it stuck at 65 for some reason. It’s not a big deal. Still planning to complete all of your courses. Have you had many do everything?

Yes, there are quite a few therapists who studied all my courses. However many choose to not participate in the forum. I would love it if there would be an active discussion amongst therapists going on in the forum, and I am looking forward to that point.

One of the therapists who took all my courses is living and practicing in Saudi Arabia. Quite amazing! You would not think of Saudi Arabia as a prime place for Thai Massage, but maybe Thai Massage is perfect for countries where people do not easily take their clothes off (like Thailand and most Asian countries as well).

Completed 2,3 and 4 module. Nice to learn so many alternatives and variations. Its gives you different options depending on how tired you are, how big the client is etc.

It really is amazing how much you can do in Thai Massage without using your hands. Without this knowledge many therapists would have burned out a long time ago. Many therapists in Thailand use hands free techniques extensively, however there is generally little training about it available. That’s why I decided to take it to a whole new level with this course.

I completed 5, 6, and 7 and the course test. Enjoyed adding some new hands free techniques. I missed a couple of questions on the test I shouldn’t have missed. Just didn’t go back and reread or cross check my self as I should.

Don’t worry about missing a few questions. No big deal. I am sure you know how to do the techniques right:) I’ll be sending your certificate out soon.
