Oh okay, i see, I was from the side of client and leaning down but I wasn’t on client’s shoulder side and leaning toward the feet that’s probably was bit awkward

Module 26
I used less finger thumbs now as it tiring to give lot pressure, I use more forearm and elbow to give more power and pressure on the big clients that request harder massage.
Just need to be careful when I massage around shoulder blade with forearm as it get bony area.
Elephant walking around lower back I think is the best, it's super simple yet give really good feeling to client.

Module 27
I do kneading the trapezius all time when I'm about to start head neck and shoulder massage.
what sort of pressure should we apply when we do palm circle around shoulder blade?
Also I find it bit hard to lift when we do shoulder and upper back stretch, especially client with heavy shoulder
Btw I'm so happy, I can do cobra 3 I think I do fairly perfect as I got complements over it thought I was slightly bit nervous when I did first time but get more and more confident as I go

The area around the shoulder blade can take a good amount of pressure. Of course it totally depends if you are a working on a big muscular person or a light and skinny person. If in doubt, just ask the client if the pressure feels comfortable or ask how the pressure feels on a scale from one to ten.

Module 28

Nice to watch again and again for the summary as I can see and help me remember some techniques I have forgot or decide not to use and compare how I do to yours. There are some techniques that I didn't use as I think it just not suit me when I practice it but I see how you do make me want to try it again thought it still awkward but yes what you said is true we can't use all techniques to one client with not much time of appointments will be very rush, quick to change position after position and not relaxing at all so I will stick to use what I feel comfortable and confident to use

Module 29
Normally I do side position to pregnant customers, with pillows to support pretty much similar with Thai massage side position you have thought through video.
Sitting position is look easy but when I practice is actually not easy as I constantly try to ensure I wasn't give to much pressure on one side of thigh of clients and not making her uncomfortable.
Do you recommend to use techniques like palm circle and forearm rolling on hips for pregnant clients while she has massage on side position?

Some of the techniques in the sitting position can be a bit tricky, but they are quite effective.

I can't see any reason why you couldn't do the hip techniques which you mentioned on a pregnant woman.

Module 30
On side position for back massage feel actually relaxing in my opinion as the client not facing the masseuse and client can fall asleep comfortably, I had 2 clients so far who fallen asleep while I gave back massage on side position.
Spinal twist I did very gentle and slow and Elephant walking also gentle and I did with medium pressure to support the clients to be at very calm and relax
state.
At the end I finish with stretch with knee on the lower back and the glutes, and I swap from one side to others
Not many techniques but very relaxing and love them

Module 31

I personally like to work on shoulders on sitting position rather than on side position. But there are few techniques I think easier to do on they shoulder when the lying one side. Like circle shoulder and pushing the shoulder.
I tried the roll techniques on client shoulder but his too stiff after couple readjust positions of his lying on the side we can roll his arm slighty more.
But on my sister when I did rotate shoulder stretch that was pretty good, she enjoy it, and it's not as hard for me to do it too

When clients fall asleep, that's always a good sign!

You will find that there are quite a few shoulder techniques that work really well in the side position. Smile

Module 32

During side position when I worked on shoulder with the swing arm backward is pretty strong techniques, my first client was bit shocked but I did try to my sister I let her know in advance what I'm about to do, then she's actually took it fine

Shoulder and arm traction stretch is also good stretch, and I combine kneading with rocking on arm and shoulder they great after stretch them out

Module 33

I like sitting position as client body is stable and able to hold bit more pressure and doesn't need much support from therapist.
Normally when I perform whole body massage I'll request client to sit up for me to work more on their shoulder neck and head to finish the massage. So I'm looking forward to get lot more techniques to improve mine.

From the video I've done few similar to yours, not very often use squeezed techniques on the neck,
the back stretch with foot also was strong, will use that more often

I am glad to hear that you didn't have a problem with the sitting techniques. Many therapists find them difficult because they have never used the sitting position in their work.

Maybe because I’m doing sitting position almost to every massage for about 10-15 mnts to work on their shoulder neck and head so I quite like this position

Module 34

The stretch back i try to my sister during that time was good but I need to get confident to be able to do for male client or I may need to modify for male clients
However the knee stretch is fine for me and clients.

I usually do forearm massage on neck while stretching as well on my routine,
You mentioned on videos that thai massage should not end in sitting position and recommend laying on back position to end,
Would you recommend after we do sitting position we let customer to laying down and then massage their head to finish?

Yes, that would be the best ending. Personally I have always used parts of the material in the Heavenly Head Massage course to end my Thai Massage sessions with. For me this has proven to be the perfect way to end my sessions, and clients tend to love it.

Module 35

Wow it's different that normally when I receive videos now we learn the communication with clients, which I think it's essential as our practice is require personal touch to get communication right and get them feel secured and it will be ok with the stretch and our move is needed to make client feel comfortable and safe.

Your videos is great reminder how to explain to clients for similar questions that I've been asked, or when I want to ask to gain some information from clients,
Also thank you for 1 to 10 method,it has been help me a lot to get better understanding clients especially with client who's not very talkative!

Btw, I have question, on the portal I saw there's notice, it says the end of certification program, and I will receive international certificate, how do we receive it?

And we can still received videos for the rest bonus, is that right?

Thank you

Your certificate was already sent to you by email, and there are many more modules with training videos coming in the three bonus courses. Smile
