Complete Thai Massage Module 35 -  Client Communication

Your explanation about the different learning methods and how people communicate: auditory, visual or kinesthetic was insightful and helpful.

For example, I was trained to use an intake form which includes highlighting areas of the body that the client would like to address (areas of pain or discomfort) and if the pain is worse in the morning or evening; activities and exercise the client partakes in; brief medical history (operations, etc); if the client is under the current care of a doctor or therapist; medicines the client is taking if any, etc.

The intake form is only for new clients. Sometimes, in a first session, if it feels like the client needs to rest more than fill out a form, I'll skip the form and ask the questions verbally. If a session is a gifts certificate and again, it looks like the client really is there for relaxation, same thing: I'll ask the questions verbally. 

Depending on the client, I'll inquire more or less. I've wondered about this because sometimes it feels right to offer the intake form to be filled out quietly and other times it feels like a better fit to talk and often, a combination of both. 

Personally, when I was younger, my prominent way of learning and communicating was visual/writing/reading. In recent years, I am noticing how this is changing and becoming more balanced with the ability to learn and communicate auditorily, kinesthetically and trust my intuition.

At the beginning of all sessions, I ask my clients how they are feeling. The answers come in all shapes and forms. For the most part, they arrive ready to relax and I do my best to inquire, inform and balance all of that with letting them be so they can receive and experience any amount of healing possible in every session. Deep relaxation is where healing happens, as you mention, like when we sleep.

You completed the certification program. It was a treat for me to follow your posts. It is also obvious that you are a competent, intuitive, and sensitive Thai Massage therapist. I am sure that many people will benefit greatly from your skills.
