In module 13,  reminding me about the important relationship between therapist and client. It also finishes up the "hip pie" concept. " I will take this concept as a guideline when doing hip stretching. It is balanced and it increases the hip's range of motion.

In module 14, I learnt how to move around smoothly. I understood how to do the rocking on the hip. However, when I did on my wife, she did not  like it. She just think not much benefit from the rocking on her hip. Other than that, I think a small therapist may have difficulty to doing hip rocking for a big client. Well, I guess I can choose the technique that is appropriate when doing massage.

In module 15, there are some techniques are very useful. The technique about how to massage the abdomen is the one I do it on myself when I have constipation. It is so effective. The techniques that circle the outside of rib cage with palms and circle below collarbone with fingertips are excellent techniques. My wife feels so comfortable. I think most people have tight shoulders in certain degree. Elephant walk on the shoulder and circling below collarbone with fingertips can release the stiffness.  Smile

Hip rocking can be anything from pleasant to therapeutic. If someone is open and relaxed in the hip area, the rocking won't do much aside from relaxation. If someone is stiff, has pain, or can't handle big stretches, then the rocking can be the perfect solution. In a very small number of people the hip rocking can cause nausea.

In module 16, the combination of stretching and kneading the shoulders and the arms are so effective. These are the techniques I never heard about. I appreciate that  Shama emphasized the importance of the quality of touch, espcially when we doing massage on the joints or some other tender part of the body.

The way Shama teaches how the therapist moves around the client is always the best, such as changing from one position to another position, or even just moving legs and arms. In module 18, there is another focus that is shoulder. The technique of stretching shoulder should help for the people who have 'frozen shoulder' I think. The twist of upper body is also another useful technique.

yes, it is truth. Even in the module 19, the summary reviews the some good stretch techniques on hip and shoulder. It is nice to have massage with appropriate breathing for the therapist and the clients. The whole set of this part makes us feel the comfortable atmosphere.

In module 20, there are some techniques working on feet. Those are very usefull, especially for those people who have to walk or stand a lot in their daily life. I have a lot of friends who like hiking. They always feel pain on their feet or have achilles tendon pain after a long hike in the weekend. The techniques in this module should make them feel comfortable.

In Module 21, it is nice to know the difference between pressing and leaning. Leaning make the client feel a lot more confortable and relaxing. I think Shama just know how to make the posture right very well. For doing the big muscle like the thigh, the most important part is to make right posture and how to get support. That, at the same time, makes the leaning a lot easier. In this module, the technique about how to use my knee to lean on the client's lower leg muscle is very interesting and effective.

The technique I learnt in the first half part of module 22 is so good for the knees and the quadriceps of my wife's legs. But it takes time to find the right spot when i try to use my knee press on my wife's hip.

Working with knees, elbows and feet takes some time to learn correctly since you have to develop feeling in these body parts. That's for most of us a new way of using our body, and it is not something that we do right immediately. But it will definitely come with practice. Smile

In module 23, I think using the knees to do massage on the hip and sacrum are very effective. I can go more deep if it is neccessary I think I have learnt a lot of techniques about how to do massage on feet, legs and hips so far. I agree with that it takes time to practise in order to do it correctly.

In module 24, the techniques are very similar to Chinese Tui Nai. The palm circle and wiggle technique are excellent for releasing the muscles around the spine. I usually do rubbing from the top of the spine to the bottom of the spine for my wife. Your techniques adds more variety for me.

In module 25, I learnt how to do massage on the spine. Actually, spine pain is always the problem for most people, particularly over 40 years old. in this module, I think it is very useful to learn how to do massage on erector muslces betside the spine, especialy for lower back. Lower  back pain somtimes radiate to legs. The elbow rocking is very pleasant technique.

Module 26 is very excellent session. I have a lot of friends who is having spine pain problem. The techniques in this module is mainly about how to do massage on the spine. The way to put the client's shoulder on the thigh is put everything under control, then it is easy to work on the shoulder and the back as well. The elephant walking and the techniques using hands, forarms and elbows are so useful!!

In module 27, still work on the spine. I like it. The techniques of corba are wonderful as these increase flexibility of the spine. The techniques working on the shoulder and upper back make my wife feeling so comfortable. Again, as all the previous modules, the teacher always emphasize on  what is the appropriate position to handle each technique and how to handle each technique well.
