When you start studying Thai Massage you most probably learn a so-called “massage sequence.” This sequence is a fixed set of subsequent moves, actions and massage techniques, in order to realize an energy-balanced full body massage.
It’s generally good enough and every school or institution teaches its own set—has its own curriculum, and in most cases the differences between beginner’s training courses are rather small.
Now, to become a Thai Massage practitioner it’s important to first learn a sequence, no matter what sequence—to practice it and master it. Fully. To be able to dream it—and to be able to do it blindly so to say. It will give you the necessary confidence, the routine, to take the next step: to actually sense what the client really needs.
After a while, you will start skipping techniques, and emphasize certain other steps, reorder them. Your sequence won’t follow a fixed pattern any longer—it will become more spontaneous, creative, uniquely depending on the client’s needs.
Ongoing, you will feel the urge to learn more, to understand more. To acquire more techniques and tools to tackle specific problems. To really help and support people. To be more versatile, more effective.
It will mean the beginning of your continuing education, and your lifelong commitment.
