I had this happen to me quite a few times, that I worked on someone and somehow intuitively knew something about them that I had no way of knowing. That happens when you really tune into your clients. That's what I am trying to convey in this course. I am glad that it is working better for you now, and it will keep getting better, I am sure.

module16

i like work on shoulders and pecs...cause it s the part my body needs the most.

i always work on pecs cause if you have a bad posture ...and most of us have a bad posture...but i noticed that also I have a bad posture while doing the pull back..i think i use the whole body but if i look on the mirror my head is dropping back and i feel that i m using only the upper body.

to focus on the hara i really have to have a slow paste otherwise the magic it does not happend!

module17

in module 16 i forgot to say that most of the movement that you show i was doing without knowing come from thai!...and last day i asked my husband to massage my arms and without knowing massage so much he was getting the same movements from thai...without focus on body shifting but i really think thai massage is the best base to start massageand effective, i feel that really work with the energy channels and nerve sensations expecially when massaging the hands..the whole heand feels relaxed...

Regarding focusing on the hara - you don't have to be really precise about that. The most important thing is that you don't just focus on your hands, but develop a feeling of working with your entire body. And whenever possible, focus on your hara. That won't be 100 % of the time, and that's ok.

module 19

the second summary really gives me ideas for nice routine way.hip rocking with the legs and then go down to. To feel it s alway ...always appreciated from clients also the lower back stretch i do also with bending a knee to the side and then pull from lower back...it really feels like u are shacking off all the bad energies and brush out the negativity...some people of course are not completly dead fishes ...so also if i try to relax them i know they r not getting the 100%

module20

i never thought about the knee when the client is face down...so make sense all the way to work the leg starting with the feet...i always try to remember the nutcracker to get the softness but deep and using body weight. I do the push and pull and rocking the heel..some people ask me why i do that...and i say to loose the leg up..is that correct? like the pillow adjustment for the neck...so i can try on my bed with a bench beside and a pillow in between.

Certainly your answer is the correct one regarding the push/pull/rocking technique.

module 21

i looove the technique with my leg under the quads...very differents feelings , for the clients, about the time of stretching! You cannot reach that on the table! Not on everybody but it s perfect also for sciatic pain!. Securing the foot not always easy..but and i see also for shins the knee push is excellent..i m gonna use all the moves from this session!!!

i did some of these strokes at school but it s true...with the time you forgot to do it if you don t practiceand like you said these add extra quality on the stretch..but yes...depending of client masseuse combination match..

again ..love all of these techniques..also pulling the hips...i do it when i see a hip lower in a side.

Shama..do you ever get tired and stiff.and if yes...where is your point of strees?cause depending how i move sometimes i have pain in lower back( when i finished my sesssion of massage) and sometimes are my shoulders..and if somebody comes to you with specific pain on lumbar or glutea..do you use these kind of stretching for an hr?...cause rocking with fingertips it s perfect...but i get tired expecially arms as well

I happen to be very good at working with excellent ergonomics, so I don't get any pain from working. However most everyone can reach a point where you overwork yourself and start to feel stressed. For me that was always when I worked more than 5 hours of Thai Massage in one day. That has always been my limit. When I worked more, I could do it physically, but energetically I had to pay the price for it, meaning my energy crashed in the evening.

We all have to learn to pace ourselves. However that's not an excuse for working with less than excellent ergonomics or using muscle power instead of body weight. That will wipe you out quickly. The other factor is that if you try to do certain techniques on people who are large, heavy or very stiff, you might stress yourself. There are some techniques that you just have to skip on certain people.

module 24

so true what you said...i just have to let it go with other technique with some heavy people...i wish i always have the perfect clients...for me!!!! I m still struggling with using just my arms..shrug my shoulder and tight up all my neck...i have a vein in the neck that tend to get " bigger" when i work too much so i always have neck sculp head issues so at the end o f my day my skull is always on fire.. I have a question...when you working on the back where are you looking..i have people saing it better watching up..so you don t hunchback( don t know if i spell it right) and how can you have  relaxed arms if you have to put pressure on a body..there is there i get the most injuries working all the time...looking for your answers

People who say that "you cannot have relaxed arms when you have to put pressure on a body" don't understand what it means to work with body weight instead of muscle pressure. The point is we DO NOT put pressure on a body, we lean with our bodies. There is a big difference. If you use muscle pressure you will wear yourself out, guaranteed. If you work with your entire body, and with correct ergonomics, you will preserve your health and energy.

If you have trouble working with straight arms on the back, just use forearm techniques instead. You can use your forearms for straight pressure, for circling, for doing elephant walking or for rocking. There are a few such techniques coming up in module 26, and several more in the "Body Mastery For Massage" bonus module.

Good idea - come to Thailand! Smile

Actually I don't own a massage table since I have no need for one. I have always worked on a floor mat.
