Yes, I know about arch correction insoles. However in most cases, I am not much of a believer in insoles because they basically are a crutch and prevent the foot from working naturally. That's not an absolute statement. There might be some cases where insoles are necessary for medical reasons. What I am saying is that first all other natural methods should be utilized before falling back on insoles.

I am speaking from experience since I cured my Morton's neuroma with foot massage, foot exercise, and the correct shoes along with toe spacers. I went to a foot doctor who wanted to prescribe me expensive custom insoles, and I chose to do it my way which worked out to be the right thing to do. But there probably are cases where insoles might help.

When you originally enrolled in the certification program, you chose both certificates, the International Certificate and the CE (continuing education) Certificate. However since you are in Malaysia, the CE certificate doesn't do you any good. This only works for licensed massage therapists in the US who need the continuing education credits to keep their license active.

Therefore you don't need to do any tests, and I just sent you the International Certificate.

Many people have knee pains, especially the elderly, have been told by their doctors that their cartilages have already worn out and they need to go for surgery.

Is there something we can do to help or improve their knee pains problems?

If the cartilage is worn off so much that bone rubs on bone, then there is not much we can do. However we can provide relief with Thai Massage. It most likely won't fix this condition, but it can be helpful to some degree. 

Besides worn-out cartilage, there are other knee conditions that can occur separately or in combination with the cartilage issue. I myself and several of my students have had good success in treating knee conditions based on our Thai Massage For Knee Therapy course.

We can't 'fix' everything, but often we can provide much-appreciated relief to our clients, even if this is not permanent. All bodies eventually deteriorate - we cannot stop or prevent this. But we can make it more tolerable and less painful in many cases, and you never know, sometimes such treatments can have amazing effects, as I have seen with some of my own clients.

It doesn't hurt to try. There is no downside to that.
