Module 1 Introduction
I watched the video and read the training course.
It is a very structured and detailed introduction to Thai massage and a great review of body mechanics, breath and the different techniques.
And also a great reminder of getting out of one's way by letting our hands and body parts feel the client's body and energy flow instead of getting stuck in the anatomy mind set.
I have taken a Thai massage class before and practiced on my husband and friends, and my body mechanics were always a challenge. The demonstrations of the different position were very clear and detailed. I will need to practice as squatting on my toes and kneeling on my toes hurts from having tightness in my quads, illiopsoas and ankles.
The breathing intro was also a great reminder as I tend to breath in and not breath out.

Module 2 Chi Machine
It will be challenging to get feedback from my husband who is my partner. Thai massage is the only massage he loves and within the first minute, he is in "lala land".
I did not have a problem doing the technique, I could not do it for 2 minutes, for me it was fast pace as I usually work very slow. I know it will get better with practice.
Welcome to our forum and the Complete Thai Massage course.
That's an issue with your lala land "problem"! I have another course, Heavenly Head Massage, and this is a really trancy way of working. Whenever I was teaching live courses in this, my biggest problem was always that whoever I demonstrated on went into the lala land trance zone within minutes, and later could not remember what I had been doing, so I had to show it again. Anyway, if those are our biggest problems, we are in pretty good shape!
Also please take a moment to read our certification check list to make sure that it is all correctly organized and that we are on the same wave length:
