Module 1

 

Interesting with different thumb positioning in applying pressure.  I like the feel. I am used to working on the table so floor work is going to take some practice in being in different positions. Looking forward to new techniques in upcoming modules.

Module 2

 

Getting used to body positioning on floor is very different. I like the 3 different techniques especially the knuckle and forearm work. I am excited for more techniques to apply to my trade and use this foot massage as a one hour treatment for new patients.

Welcome to the course and the forum! Once you get through this course, you will have more than enough material to give a great 1 hour foot massage. Since this course is really two courses in one, you can choose if you want to work on the floor or while sitting on a chair. You will get to that in the second half of the course.

module 3

First techniques is a great technique that can also be done on the table, looking forward to using this on my patients. The Achilles tendon techniques I like because of the work I am currently doing. Practice makes perfect and there is a lot to do in order to perfect these techniques. I love walking up the leg plus the dorsal part of the foot work also.

module 4

 

Now this getting to be be creative and fun with the different body positions of the patient. Foot and knee techniques are great for the floor work and the knee is possible for table work . Nice to know that I can use these videos after course for continued practice. Balance and my technique is my greatest need for practice.

Module 5 

I am enjoying the 6 different techniques. Body positioning is important from stressing out the patient in an uncomfortable situations. The stretching of the foot of my clients has helped increase their range of motion with each treatment. More need for practice always and on my way to utilizing the foot massage session into a 1 hour treatment.Laugh

Body positioning is just as important to prevent you from stressing your own body.

module 6

 

Good point in different type of technique when rotating the ankle with patients who may have ankle issues. Also had this done on my ankle and its nice. I like it also even if the patient could handle full ankle rotation because it isolates a different range of motion for ankle. Compression and traction with ankle rotation was nice. I agree I don’t like my toes snapped either. I will use the first relaxation technique Coolwith my patients for sure.

Module 7

 

This was my favorite session so far. This is what I was really looking for in training to enhance my business in doing foot massage as a separate part of my practice. I am enjoying the different (knuckle) position I can use to salvage the health of my hands in doing a lot of treatments during the during the day. My knuckles felt good in the different techniques that we did and the massage strokes were fun. Thanks for a great session.  Laugh

There are several more sessions coming up with this kind of material! Smile Now you are into the Thai Reflexology section. You can turn that into an entire business. Actual that is exactly what many thousands of Thais have done.

Module 8

 

Again this is fun to use and it give me a change of pace from other routine in massage. You have peak my interest in this kind of work and I am excited to get started. Your example of the different kinds of oil or cream is interesting because, I use lite oil for the deeper body work that I use on my clients and when working on the feet for 1 hr., heavier oil would make sense. Thank you for another great session looking forward for the next one. SmileWink

Yes, a light oil on the feet will dry out too quickly and result in increased friction and stress on your own skin.

Module 9

 

Something I have neglected over the years, is actually working on the toes and forgetting the benefits that it can have on the client. Being that the calve muscles such as soleus and gastrocnemius are connected to the heel bone its cool to include leg work into the foot as well as knee work. Also deeper calve muscle which go in the sole of the foot benefits the client. Looking forward to last module. Smile

Module 10 

 

Nice finishing touches to thai foot massage. I like the touches with the towel at the end of the session also because the patient does have to walk on their floor after session with oil on their feet. Have use some of these techniques on current patients with good results. Looking forward to applying this Thai foot massage to a complete session which differs to what I do now. Thanks for a great course in Thai foot massage Shama looking forward for your next course in a month or so. CoolWinkSmileKiss
