This is a good way to put information into this as we go along. I have been watching videos and practicing and at this time I have three participants to be a great training resource for me as well as give me the feedback I need for progress through the practice sessions.
Lesson 1 and 2. I completely love the description about synchronizing the movement with the breath and using the body as a whole. This is great foundational information.
I have had a Chi Machine for about 15 years and although I don't use it the way I could, I have allowed some of the clients to give it a try and the comments are great on how it helps them feel relaxed while its moving and then worked after its over. Learning to make the same fish swish with a client has been a wonderful experience. I do like it as a way to help people let go. In my living area, there are so many uptight corporate types that its so demanding when encouraging them to "let go" or "relax". and you have to be very good at describing different ways to make tat happen, some have no Idea they are not relaxed or not letting go. Eye opening.
Welcome to the Complete Thai Massage certification program. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with our certification check list to make sure that it is done correctly:
Please refer especially to item #5 in the check list - each course module needs to have its own separate post. They cannot be combined.
So you have no problem understanding the Chi Machine concept - great! This one can often be challenging for course students, but not for the ones who had such a machine.
It is indeed amazing when people have no clue that they are all tense and have no idea what true relaxation feels like. Quite sad that this is a common state in our society nowadays. On the positive side we will never run out of people who need our work.
