Section 1: Massaging The Neck
This module introduces the course and explains the many ways how it can be used.
Then you will learn neck massage techniques while you are sitting in a chair behind your partner. This position is useful when you are watching a movie, for example. 
All positions in the course are designed to be used in everyday situations without special arrangements like a massage table.

In this module you will learn how to use your thumbs, your fingertips, your knuckles, your palms, and the edge of your hand. You can use a variety of techniques like squeezing, circling, wiggling, lifting and rolling. 

Between the different parts of your hands and the various techniques you can create a delightful sensation for your partner. However don't think that you have to use all techniques all of the time. Just pick and choose the ones that you like best and that are the easiest to apply for you. You can always add more techniques later.
Remember, this is supposed to be fun, not straining over techniques.
In this module you will learn how to work with oil on the neck and shoulder area.
You will also learn how to stretch and move the shoulders and upper back to create more flexibility and better range of motion.

Make sure to get feedback from your partner how it feels. Start gently with the stretches and increase gradually. All stretches should be enjoyable experiences and not strenuous moves.
For this module you can use most of the neck techniques which you already learned. Standing has some additional advantages. You can use your body weight to your advantage, This can be helpful if you are small and your partner is much larger.
There are also some additional neck manipulation techniques which are easier when you are standing since you can adjust your position more easily than when you are sitting behind your partner.
Section 2: Massaging The Feet
Foot Massage 1 - Walking On Clouds
In this module you will learn how to stretch, twist and manipulate the feet and ankles. This is great for people with stiff ankles or reduced mobility in the feet. The entire foot session can be done with giver and receiver sitting comfortably on chairs.
Since the feet carry our entire weight, they deserve special attention. Foot massage can help with hurting, stiff or swollen feet by increasing circulation and removing blockages in the energy system of the feet.
Section 3: Massaging Head And Face
Head massage can feel truly heavenly. With a few easy skills you can put your partner into a trance with the techniques of this module. Head massage is also a great way to generate a feeling of intimacy, trust, connection and well being.
Section 4: Massaging The Back
Back pain is a very common problem for many people. In this module you will learn how to help your partner with this issue. Besides being therapeutic, back massage feels amazingly good and relaxing. You will learn several highly effective techniques which include circling with your hands, rocking and even percussion techniques.
The sacrum and the bum (the glute muscle) are often neglected in massage. However I have never met anyone who does not really appreciate having this area worked on. Besides feeling great, it can help with stiff hips and lower back issues.
You will learn rocking, squeezing and circling techniques for sacrum, glutes and hamstrings.

Section 5: Massaging Hands, Arms, Abdomen And Chest
Hand Massage is one of the easiest massage methods since it can be done in almost any position. If you have never experienced a good hand massage, you will be amazed how good it feels. It is the perfect way to work on your partner in a variety of settings. Even a few minutes are effective and helpful.
In this module you will learn a few easy techniques to work on abdomen, chest and arms. Abdominal massage is very effective. It can also have a very beneficial effect on your emotional well being since many people hold stress and locked up emotions in this area. From there you can naturally continue to the chest and arms.
Section 6: Conclusion
In this module I am talking with my model about the benefits and uses of massage. She tells the story how she grew up in a small village in Thailand, and how massage is part of life there.
