Shama,

I love the new approach in this latest addition of Thai Massage for Sciatica. It is much more clinical in its approach explaining, causes, assessment and outcomes. Covering our limitations and when to refer clients is of prime importance also. I have many times when clients come with extreme pain. Making the call to help or refer can sometimes be tough.

       I have completed module 1 and 2 and plan to re-watch tomorrow. Please keep up the great work and quality.

Mark

Thanks Mark, I really appreciate what you said. I have been putting a lot more time, effort, research and energy into my latest courses. I remember a few years back I recorded my early therapy courses. It was a fairly quick process. Now however it takes me months to come up with the new courses since they are a lot more involved. You wouldn’t believe how long it takes me to do all the video editing work alone.

Anyway I makes me very happy when I can make a useful, high quality contribution to the healing arts world.

Module 3 completed. I am really enjoying the attention to detail on this course. You have done a great job of explaining sciatica, the location and structures involved, and realistic expectations of massage therapy. Once again, module 3 introduces rocking techniques which you know I use and appreciate. You use the Chi machine in your full course. The gentle rocking to relax and loosen up the client could be called ” the chill machine.”  I am looking forward to the rest of the course.

I have completed 5 and 6. Good solid stuff, some of which I have seen but never boring. After laying the foundation of rocking and palming and pressure techniques, I am looking forward to the stretching.

I was not counting on serving up any great surprises for you, but I know you always pick out some nuggets.

I completed module 7 on the exercises and I am very glad you put those in there. I actually used a few of them in my Yoga class this morning and told them we were going to do some therapeutic work for sciatic nerve issues. It went over well.

When you say “exercises”, it sounds like you are referring to module 8, not module 7. Module 7 has all kinds of stretches and module 8 has lots of self help exercises. But whatever it was, it went over well as you say, and that’s what counts. Smile

I have now completed the Thai course for Sciatica. I like the way you brought other aspects into the therapy. That is, looking at history, lifestyle etc. and adding the importance of education and a home program. There is almost always other factors that contribute to peoples issues. I enjoyed the training and look forward to your next addition. Laugh

Great, this means you have now completed 19 of my courses, I think. Quite an accomplishment. You must be doing an excellent job with your sessions by now. Good for you and your clients!
