Module  33

I am thinking that sitting  position  on thai massage is always  a part of the session because  I saw it on my previous  work if   we had training  I am always  a model that's  why my thought of thai  massage  is sitting  position is always  perform for full body session. After watching the video  at least  I have an idea it's all depends  on client  needs  and capability. I am fortunate that  my model was little  flexible so I did movements  on sitting  position  started  with shoulder leaning  and rocking, neck squeeze and stretching  towards  left  and right  side followed by pulling her back which she felt  good. I am happy  because  i had no difficulty  on the movements  on this module.

Additional  knowledge  is great  and I am comfortable  of doing things  which I know the reasons  behind. Thanks  Shama.

Personally I rarely use the sitting position in my sessions, but you have to know it. Sometimes it is just exactly what you need for a particular client - you never know. Better to have too many techniques available than not enough! Smile

Also some of the sitting positions require a little more skill and practice because it is a little harder to work on someone who is not comfortably lying down. Some of the worst Thai Massage sessions I have experienced was when the therapist tried to do sitting techniques but wasn't good at executing them, and as a result it all felt wobbly and unstable and uncomfortable. The main thing is to always provide good back support for the client.

Module  34

Still sitting position  and working to my sister , I did arm and back traction which good for me and her because  she was not heavy and we both lady so there was no issues. However  I still need to try male client to compare  the difference  if I feel comfortable  or not, if not I will not do that  techniques. 

Then for the back stretched which my knees  below on her shoulder I can't  balance  my body when I pulled her back but she felt great  on that  movement  that's  why I need to practice  to balance  my body. For her neck and trapezius  was easy for me with the combination  of learning  and rolling using my forearm then followed  by shoulder stretched using my elbow was a relaxing feeling after  the session  as per my sister. Thank Shama for the above feedback.

This technique does require a good balance. The trick with it is to move the client forward enough so that when you pull back, you don't lose your balance and fall back yourself. That does take a little practice.

Module 35

It's all about  client  communication regarding  what client  want to achieve after  the session, what  is the concern, what  area client  wants to focus on and the pressure she/he can handle. I already did that because it is a part  of my work to ask client the above questions  on the phone during taking an appointment  or during check in in the spa so that  I can assign  client  to a particular  therapist, that  consultation  form will be endorse  to therapist  with client  signature and during the session  that is the time the therapist  will ask client  if they she/he is comfortable or not and other questions  applicable on that  situation. 

For me I already  applied that  communication during my practiced  to each and every model I had it was like normal and it's a part  of the session  to achieve  model concern  and to let her/him trust  you as therapist to make her/hin relax and comfortable. Then I can apply  your example  on the video to each of my future  model if she/he is wants to talk, or only listen or feel. Thanks  Shama

Good that you are already doing the client communication, so that's nothing new to you. 

Congratulations for completing the entire course! That's quite an achievement to stick with it for 3 and a half months. However you will still receive several more bonus modules.
