Hi Pat, it is a donut face cushion I got years ago from the bodywork emporium in LA placed under the 20ml memory foam mat I have on the table. You could fashion one by cutting the oval shaped piece from memory foam and having under the overall memory foam mat.
Great massage the other day, I felt very good the day after. Thanks again for your effort.

If any of your patients are iron deficient or give up eating red meat I have found a good supplement is a tablespoon of Molasses every day. It has the daily requirement of iron and is packed with other minerals. I have found as a side benefit that it gets rid of persistent mouth ulcers as well which I suffered from when I ate too many salty foods but no more.

Hi Steve Patient completed 2nd treatment She had 3 weeks off on leave She completed a 20min run and felt terrific during and after the run. The next day she went out for another run and the knee discomfort was back. She has used roller infrequently and was using yoga standing stance to strengthen When see her next will get her in and redo same concentration areas weekly until it goes completely any advice and suggestions would be appreciated regards Pat

Hi Steve Having a bit of problem with Forum access so i will try this
Have a Lady about 30 to 40 years , runner casual fun runs etc Came describing typical Runners Knee symptoms - with advice from others to find another sport. She is in good condition and has strong lower body waste down
I performed typical massage and trigger points focusing on lower back and gluten/hamstrings about 4 x rotations at medium pressure, as was 1st SLM treatment
She described feeling much better after 1st massage ( never felt so good ) no discomfort when walking down steep grades etc She had not ran for 5 to 6 weeks previous tried run 8 days after SLM treatment
Went running on grass at about 1km in started to feel knee pain outer lateral again ( not as strong as before ) ran a further 1km no worst but did not dissapate Stopped - Pain gone when stopped running.
discussed some yoga positions and scheduled for another go ( no charge - Practice for me )
I am looking at organising a 2 day workshop weekend on the Gold Coast in 6 weeks time and wanted to get an idea of whether you would be interested in coming. I will need a reasonable turnout for it to be worthwhile.
It will be a hands on event where you will work on each other with a lot of detail both pressure point and muscle release techniques one day then massage the next day.
You will also work on another person (sports person) I will bring in.
We will cover self treatment in detail, do the yoga and ball work.
Also posture assessment and also discuss case studies and your own experiences in a clinic environment.
