Module 1 

I knew halfway into this video i had picked the right course for me and to add to what i have already studied in thai massage. I "walked" away with more notes than i expected. I am learning more about my favorite modality of hands of healing.

Module 2

I really never realized that there could be so much release to experience just by lightly working around the chest. It makes sense though because it is where our heart center is and usually needs clearing often.

Module 3

I am happy with not only what i am learning for working the energy around the chest but the release that i get to experience as well is wonderful.

I have set a time to go through a lot of these at one time meanwhile i get to answer the test questions while i am working but even with being only on Module 4 i have 5 pages of notes and my partner really enjoys my practice.

Module 5

Working for 8 years as a therapist and receiving massages myself i have noticed that many therapist will avoid the neck as if they are scared to work this area. For many people this area is where they need most work done. I am learning more than anything the benefits of light and relaxed touch versus the deep tissue that i started with 8 years ago.

Module 6

I can not stress enough how much this light and easy therapy has changed how i lay my hands on people. I have had to unlearn a lot of what was originally taught to me and except that profound affects of energy work. So far i like the neck modules the best. Module 6 was one i got to have my partner practice on me....wow....you don't need to be a braniac to help someone. I didn't know i needed it.

Module 7

Simply put i really like how graceful the neck rotations are and that i have to trust the flow of movement in their body and mine.

Module 9

As it turns out men seem to respond very well to ear work from what i noticed in the past so i was excited about this module. My partner said he had the tingles almost the whole time...very cool.

Module 10

When i used the leaning pressure technique on my friend she said it relieved some of her tension headache but she could also feel extra sensions in her feet, very cool.

Module 11

I like how he is always reminding us, like in this video, to sit comfortably and not stress your body. I had a thai teacher in Costa Rica that said if it doesn't feel good to you it won't feel good to them and that lines up with all the tips he gives on how to use the body while working on clients.

Module 12

This is the first module in which i used the techniques on myself. The techniques used around the nose and eyebrows has helped relieved my sinus pressure....Texas allergens:(

Module 13

He was showing how to use the palm of the hand as well as the fingertips which is something i had to play with but it is interesting to note how different the same move can feel with two different types of touch.

Module 14

As easy as it looks to do the holds it is something i have had to slow down and just let happen....it seems very peaceful to the client and it helps me learn to be more sensitive to touch or energy.

Module 15

I practiced this on a person with a heavier head so i got to play with the moves until i was comfortable with lifting and rocking but the client said it was relaxing and when she stood up she said her spine aligned.

Module 16

I had recently bought a turkish towel which are longer and thinner than what we are used to here but because i am small it was good for me to have the extra cloth to wrap around my hands which made a big difference on the lady i was working on since she had a heavier head.

Module 17

So far i have not had anyone let me use oil on the face but i did try some of the moves i liked on my own face and wow! I did not realize how tight my face was and my neck/head even felt lighter after i was done.

Module 18

His imitation of how posture should look like vs how some people look like is spot on for most people in North America and i definitely agree that sitting and sitting in front of computers is a lot of people!
