i like the shotgun approach!

let s get some action!

i totally follow from the total thai course the rocking….this is my introduction for everything..expecially on the spine

ok what about if the client complain about feeling i m pressing on kidneys also if i don’t?..

i use my arms rigid…i guess that is why at the end of the day i have neck pain??

i like the food but yeah…the balance is a plus!what about the knee?Cool

Sounds like this course is answering a lot of questions for you. Smile I think very few therapist have a solid understanding of sciatica, which is why I made this course.

Regarding the kidneys – you don’t really get so near to them since you are mostly working in the lower lumbar area. Kidneys don’t hurt with normal massage, unless you are using way too much pressure or the client has an actual problem with the kidneys.

Really strong pressure is never good for sciatica lower back work. You will get the area around the vertebrae to hurt before the kidneys hurt.

You can work the lower back with the knee just fine as long as you are sensitive and don’t use too much pressure.

Whatever body part you are using, practice the power of softness, a gentle touch, good ergonomics, feeling relaxed and flowing with the moves. If you do that, your body will not hurt – guaranteed!

my way to massage today is zoo much changed since i started your videos that is amazing how i feel that your techniques became mines and i love them and my clients always say that my way to massage is unique too..now as soon as you start a technique i m already like..i know..i start that way too.

anyway…i like the roll down and hook the other side of the gluts..it s a nice stretch of course on the side that hurt..for the comfort of the therapist yes…i m definably not comfortable working on the table..also when i use my elbows for circles..it s a work out for me do it on the table..so yes after 5 massages  i m tired.but i still want to do it on the table.

the wiggle is a way to feel where the tension are in both sides of the spine…so i use a lot even to check how loose the soft tissue became.

mentioning the tapping on the chest…i improved the breathing of a client with problems breathing and scoliosis very deep curve…so i thank you for that too!!

I am always happy to hear if you appreciate what I teach and resonate with it! Smile

I can believe that your clients say that your work is unique, because this is not something which many therapists know how to do, even here in Thailand.

wow….this rocking back and forward is a real work out!but receive it FEEL SOO GOOOOOD

and my elbow in gluts muscle..is finally on it 

i work with angles as well..and it s mostly like..i feel tension spots..so for me it not really hard get the sure-paiful spots…still with the good pain feeling.

i disagree small people don t need deep pressureWink

i forgot all this different use of the knee..of curse i m gonna try on the table too!even with the use of the hands to stabilize and have more weight…even better the pulling up and lean on the other side..very Brushing-effective technique!

It’s a bit of a generalization that you cannot use much pressure on smaller people. I know, there are small people who love deep pressure. It sounds like you are one of them! Smile
