THAI MASSAGE KNEE THERAPY ON THE TABLE
I promised already to our friend- Chloe Steele ( Hi, Chloe!! ) to write an article about how to do thai massage knee therapy on the table.
Of course, the thai massage is traditionally done on the mat, and this is the most confortable mode to do it. But when you confront with some pain in legs, like Chloe, you cannot stay in the best thai position on the mat. In this case, you want to offer the thai massage on the table. I wrote this article because some times I must to do my thai massage for the knees on the table in our clinic and I want to illustrate for everyone how I do it.
First of all, you’ll need to lowered the table to a confortable position and your hands must to be able to touch the client's knee without any effort from you and without to bend yourself. The therapist must to have a table ( lowered to a good position ) and a medical stair for the client. Some moves you can do staying on your legs and the rest of the moves you can be able to do it staying on a chair. One or two moves on the cannot be done on the table but they are not some important moves. Even this ones can be done with some towels put under the pacient's legs.
Seems like the pictures don't want to show up unfortunately. Luckily I have seen them in the facebook group. For anyone who is reading this and wants to see the pictures, here is the link to the facebook post with the pictures:

Alex it was great to see that you were also using and adapting the techniques we have learned through this course via the table. I too was in need of finding ways to adapt for my aging clientele and/ or people that have had poor results post knee replacement. I am having very good results.
Thank you, Roset! Almost all Shama's techniques, if someone understand their reasons, can be done in every position you want to do. But the maximal effect is done by the work on the mat. Of course I did some moves on table but - If my client want better and quicker results I recommend an 1 hour session on the mat.
