I’ve been interested in Massage for quite some time and really don’t like learning in a class setting, so this is the perfect course for me as I am a Visual Hands On learner, I’ve been waiting for a course just like this to come along and totally surprise me, and that’s exactly what happened!

Before this year I had never went for a thai massage session, I have been to hundreds of american massage sessions and to tell you the truth none of them compare!  Thai Massage is the Greatest out there and I want to learn so I can share with the world!

I just downloaded Module two, so I’m going to watch that in a bit and then go join up with my good friend to practice Thai Massage Mod 2!

I will talk to y’all tomorrow, peace out my young friends, and enjoy every moment with the greatest confidence followed by amazing joys leading to the ultimate happiness!

Hi Ryan, welcome to the forum and the Thai Massage course. It’s great to hear how much this massage style resonates with you. I can totally understand, since I feel exactly the same way. Soon you will be able to share it with the world! I am looking forward to hearing about your progress.

This is my third time writing this review, it always seem to time out and then it erases my writing and I have to log in again, so I’ll make it short, the hamstring stretch was a nice start, I had to reposition myself a few times to get comfortable, and the chi machine was pretty cool, I have the machine and it is amazing so I can see what my friend/client feels after we’re done.  I also bought the hands free and the body mastery which is a very good thing to know and apply from the start, I have became good friends with an amazing Thai Girl and have been practicing with her much, it’s really nice working with a girl with many years experience in Thai Massage, I absolutely love this course and do wish indeed that you come out with many new videos!!

 

Thank You so Much and I’m super excited to continue learning all that is available!

 

Till next time

Hmm, I have no idea why you get logged out. The forum does not have a setting for logging people out. When I am logged in, I stay logged in the whole day. There must be some cookie or some setting at your end causing it. I even contacted the forum support team, and they say that there is no setting for logging people out.

One work-around for that is to compose your message in MS Word or any such program, and then copy it into the forum.

That’s great that you have a Thai woman whom you can practice with.

Regarding coming out with new videos, within a few days I will send out an announcement about just that. I am in the process of finalizing a whole new big course.

That’s so great that your coming out with a whole new course, I’m so excited, you really are a great teacher, with an amazing way of teaching people, it’s so wonderful!

I’m going to practice session 3 the feet, and review hands free 2 & 3 and apply them all, and I found some tight muscle on my right side that we will work on tonight too, I’m so very excited to practice tonight.  With the ultimate confidence and unlimited power to pursue the greatest Thai Massage ever.

 

Keep up the powerful videos, they are the Best

Yesterday evening I started practicing # 3 – it took a bit to get the hang of it, and once I got it there was no stopping me, I really do enjoy the teachings on how to use elbows knees feet knuckles as well and the body pressure, it really saves the thumbs!

You really do have an amazing setup here Shama it is really so user friendly, and the great amount of possibilities from this site, you are really doing some great things here.

Tonight I work on my Mom and maybe my Dad if he’s man enough, lol

Till next time have an exciting adventurous time full of fabulous wonders and the greatest joys ever!

Thanks Ryan, yes it is a wonderful setup. I love seeing how my students are progressing and I enjoy reading their stories. It gives me a lot of inspiration as well.

I hope your dad is man enough (funny one hehe) Laugh

Well things didn’t turn out as planned, on the 17th I went straight home after work and went to sleep, I was so tired, I’m a Project Administrator and currently we’re building modules for the oil sands project.  It is long hours and hard work, 12 hours a day, 5 days a week!

So on the 18th I went for a two hour session after work but we didn’t practice, we did however enjoy some delicious sashimi/sushi after the session at the best place around, Globe Fish!

This weekend I’m going back to my home town Medicine Hat Alberta, and I will perform many sessions on my family back home, practice makes perfect they say and I will get lots of that this weekend.

Still working on mod 4 and soon 5

Till Next Time

That’s quite a workload you have there.

I am sure your family will appreciate your sessions more and more along with your growing skills.

It’s been a while, the leg warmup was pretty challenging at the start and once I practised some more things got much easier, I’m super glad for my thai friend and her great abilities to help me!  My right side has limited mobility from serious brain injury since I was 7, I was healed recently by Jesus, and now I have to stretch all my muscles as many of them have not moved in 23 years, and I am starting to rejuvenate my mobility and it is an amazing process! 

Now I’m watching Leg Stretching 

I wanted a add a picture but no matter how small I make the picture it won’t let me!

Hi Ryan, are you trying to add a profile picture or a picture in the posting section?

The leg work in Thai Massage is the most technically challenging since there are so many possible stretches and variations. The good news is that it won’t get more difficult than that. Once you learn the leg stretches, everything else is easier since then you have the foundation already.

It sounds like Thai Massage would be a great therapy for you yourself. From what you describe, that should really help you. I hope your Thai friend can do some good work on you.

So Tuesday evening I went over to my good friends place and wow I gave my Thai Friend a two hour Thai massage and it was absolutely incredible I worked on her Feet as well I incorporated reflexology into it as well, then moved onto the legs, had a little bit of trouble on figuring out how to position myself to pull on the quads and calfs, probably on the video though I missed that part, then moved onto the hips, gluts, and back, I never got to theshoulders, neck or head, it was a two hour session my first ever two hour session and I was like so excited,

On top of all that excitement my right hand was the most relaxed and had the greatest mobility in 23 years, (actually like 22.5 years, May 25 1990) I was like so amazed, it was really truly amazing!

I’ve been stretching all the muscles in my right arm for the last seven days or so, and the results are amazing, absolutely amazing.  This is like the greatest way of massage ever!

Congratulations, that’s fantastic! I am also excited for you! I feel like I was there watching it just from reading your description. Thai Massage really does lend itself to long sessions, there is so much that can be done. Believe it or not, here in Thailand even three hour sessions are not unusual. Of course it is so cheap here, that’s one reason why this can happen. In the western world few people are willing to pay for a three hour session.

But I have to tell you, whenever I was doing Thai Massage in the US, I never did less than a two hour session. I just told everyone that this is what it takes, and that’s what I do. Nobody ever blinked an eye about that. Most therapists think that their clients would not easily go for a two hour session, but this is only something in their minds. I have done countless two hour sessions and I never heard the argument that it was too long.

I think setting a two hour standard for Thai Massage sessions is a good thing to do, and it is very possible. Actually I am writing this after just finishing a two hour Thai Massage session on a client.

I am also very happy to hear about the positive impact on your own health.

Way to go Ryan!!
