I am looking forward to it. I see a lot of clients with piriformis issues and sciatic nerve problems. I am amazed at how many are relieved by Thai sessions. Many are sendendary and just walking, doing a little yoga or thai can stop the pain. So many people sit on their butts at work all day and go home and just sit on the couch. After Thai, I try to educate them and get them into a yoga class or activity of some sort. It is much better if they learn self-care. It is sciatic issues that go beyond simple piriformis stretches I want to know more about. How do I know where the nerve is being pressed on? I realize that is a more clinical approach rather than energetic.
Tomorrow is Thanksgving here. I realize you don't celebrate it there but probably have some version of your own thankfulness tradition. I am thankful for you and your work Shama. Also thnakful for turkey and red wine! LOL
There is something like Thanksgiving in Thailand but it is on a different date.
I keep getting new ideas about the sciatica course and will see that I come up with something useful. There will be some clinical information in there as well, by the way, and I am planning a do-it-yourself section.

I had another one of those sciaitic nerve clients today. There is a 245 pound car mechanic that has been resistant to letting a guy work on him. Last night night he paced the floor all night because he hurt so bad and had missed his chiropractor yesterday. He called this morning in pain and asked me to work on him. Another believer in Thai. It helped a great deal to ease the pain and I was able to teach him some home stretches for the piriformis. Excited about the new course when ready.
