I started my Thai Foot Massage course yesterday!!! I am very excited!  I found it to be very informative .  My first video was about where the 3 meridians were located on feet were ,technique on how to safely execute the modality. Proper body mechanics . I cant wait for the next video to arrive! Smile

i received my third video and was excited to see that this one was a bit of a challenge, LOVE IT! I was wondering if it matters if its a massage table rather then a matt? I mentioned this to one of my clients that I was working on the table and they asked me if i wanted them to get off the table and lay on floor! HA HA !  My clients absolutely love the Thai foot massage, I think the rhythm of the thai is very relaxing.Smile Looking foward to number 4!!!!!!!

It can be done on a table or on the floor. However I have a strong preference for the floor personally since it makes the ergonomics much easier and better. For example you cannot sit between the legs of a client when you work on a table. Many techniques can be adapted to the table, but not all of them. On the floor you have more options – you can use your knees and feet to work with. That does not work on the table of course.

If you do work like Thai Massage or Shiatsu which is done on a mat most of the time, then it is easy to add the Thai Foot Massage techniques to your routine. If however you do some other type of massage which you do on a table normally, then it makes perfect sense to adapt the foot massage techniques to the table and just skip those that cannot be done on a table, like working with the feet or knees. There are plenty enough techniques in the course so that you don’t have to worry about not including all of them in your table work.
