In Thailand, people are generally more flexible than in the western world. They can sit cross-legged, squat on their toes, or sit in ways which would be considered yoga asanas elsewhere.
When western massage therapists first start practicing Thai Massage, they often have issues with some of the therapist positions and they are lacking the flexibility that their Thai counterparts naturally have.
Luckily those issue can generally be easily rectified with a few exercises which are demonstrated in this video series. This edition deals with developing a good balance while working with your feet in a standing position on your clients.

Great – I am glad that the balancing exercises served your purpose well!
Dear Shama, thank you very much for paying our attention towards balance- a crucial & topical issue in our therapist’s activity. I had started attending yoga classes before being enrolled to your courses, now I go to lessons even more consiously and intentionally 🙂
