  1. Wow Shama.. really impressive!! I love it!!!
    I am practicing Swedish Massage in my clinic here in Toronto, and it is killing my wrists and shoulders even though I got trained in college on how to balance body momentum in massage therapy. Thai Massage opens a completely brand new door to how and where to utilize different techniques to promote range of motions and break down tension of body.
    Can’t wait to walk through the rest of the module series before I move on to enrollment into actual training!
    Can’t thank you more Shama for your splendid work!

  2. These are wonderful techniques to use. I can’t wait to learn more. they will come in very handy for my own reflexology business.

  3. Thank you so much! You finally educated me on what Thai massage actually is. My previous impression of what I thought it was was SOOOOO off! And I am very enamored already and want to learn more! Looking forward to the next video 🙂

  4. Hey…this is a great thing …im happy to
    Learn n share this new but ancient form of healing. I just turned 60 but i feel 39 because ive had many massage sessions….
    Now im excited to get certified to contnue sharing this healing art with as many people possible for general well-being….

    • I am not sure I would call it laid back, but there is an emphasis on ideal body mechanics that enables you to have more power with less effort. There is also a lot of emphasis on working in such a way that therapists don’t hurt their own bodies. In short, it is a therapist-friendly style.

      • This is wonderful to hear and exactly why I’m interested but I’ve just learned that there is so much more to Thai massage that I didn’t realise. Excited to learn more and hopefully be able to practise massage again.

  5. Greatly enjoyed this video. Movements you demonstrated such as the for traction, compression, knee techniques and the stretching very much reminded me of techniques I studied in Shiatsu. Other techniques such as the squeezing/kneading and percussion reminded me of some techniques I learned through my western massage studies. Learning that Thai massage is descended from active yoga was a nice bit of information. I look forward to learning more.
