It is so sad there are these massage mechanics who hurt people in the name of massage. I have had plenty of those sessions myself. That's a big reason why I decided to really focus on quality of touch and sensitivity in my courses.

Module 15

My partner was quite apprehensive for this session as she has had an unpleasant experience previously. Working very gently she found your techniques very relaxing. I have now started to use a few of these techniques to start a session as I feel it connects me to my client more effectively than starting at the feet.

Module 16

Firstly I should ask about lightly oiling my hands when working flesh on flesh as, according to my partner, it feels far better. When my hands are dry she feels a stretching on her skin which is obviously unpleasant, is there something to look out for in my technique or could it be just that my hands are quite dry ? The shoulder row boat is a little tricky when gauging the push/pull pressures but I'm sure will get easier with more practice. The triangle shoulder stretch is great and is always well received.

Module 17

I have found that with some partners there is quite a bit of tension in the forearms, more so in the top of the forearm and down along the centre line, possibly from working on computers all day. The hand massage is nice but not sure if I will be able, time wise, to fit it into a regular massage session.

Regarding module 16 - theoretically you could use some oil. The problem is that then you have oily hands and get it on the client's clothes which they might not appreciate. The other thing is that some clients have clothes on which leave the shoulder area exposed, and some might wear a t-shirt which fits tight around the neck, in which case there would be no direct skin contact.

Also there are techniques where you really don't want to have oil on your hands in order to get a good grip on something. Personally I have rarely used oil in Thai Massage except when working on the neck for a while. You can decide that on a case-by-case basis and do what's best for you and your clients.

Module 18

It is good to see the transitions demonstrated as it's something you cannot see as the recipient. The figure 8 shoulder technique is great and I have been doing for it for a while now as I have the Shoulder course as well, it was a little tricky to get at first but very rhythmic when you get the hang of it. My partner found the upper back and upper spine twists comfortable to receive and " better than anything I have achieved in the yoga class ".

Module 19

Once again really good to see a session with the techniques strung together in a flowing sequence.

 "better than anything I have achieved in the yoga class" - that's a very encouraging feedback!!
