Module 22

 

 Alot of my clients feel pain in the knees with the leg stretches I do have a couple that I can do the leg more to the side to get a better stretch but they are already very flexible and dont feel much of a quad stretch.. I feel that my clients prefer the alternative stretch with lifting of the leg instead of bending  and pushing the foot into the butt. I personally am tender in my hips flexors and gleuts so I would not be able to have the knee press in mine. For my clients we had to work up for me to be able to use my knee in that area.

Module 23

  Any time I can use a rocking motion in session I do. I love using rocking on the legs and hip area. It helps my clients relax the area, I feel they tend to tense up when I work in the hip flexor area since it can be tender. I love the idea of rocking for sacral work. Being in a smaller more conservative town gleut/ sacral work is harder to have clients accept. Being clothed has been easier for them to relax to the idea.

True, rocking generally works for everyone and with many techniques. I guess you know that we have an entire course just about rocking. Rocking is an essential skill for Thai Massage therapists.

Module 24

  This is a great starter for back work. Most of these moves I already use in my regular massage sessions. I never realized how much I already pull from Thai and Lomi in my sessions. I know alot of my clients like the deeper/ firmer work and being able to discover new moves to add to my already existing routine is helpful. Mainly so my regulars dont feel like every session is repetitive.

Module 25

  So I already do elbow in the groove but what is new is using both elbows in the low back and pushing away. I Do use 1 elbow in the low back/QL area but use my other hand and a buffer for displaced pressure and push down and in. Doing the 2 elbows on a bigger person is great but I feel doing this on a smaller person is harder on my low back since I am bending down more. I will have to skip this or figure out a alternative/like move for the smaller clients.

Sounds like you are a natural for Thai Massage since you had already pulled from it. Smile

Remember, the techniques are not meant to be used on everyone. It is always your choice to determine what works best for a client, and what works best for your body as well. The techniques are options to choose from.
