Yamuna® Table Training
Hands-on therapists understand that it is important to train in a variety of techniques since not all clients respond to the same type of treatment. It is also beneficial for the general health of the therapist to use several techniques and different ways of using the body in order to reduce the wear and tear of repetitive impact that accompanies the massage profession.
The Yamuna® Table Treatment involves very little direct pressure on fingers or hands. It uses the generalized body weight of the therapist to apply pressure into the client’s body through the hands. The YAMUNA® balls act as a fulcrum to allow deeper work into joints.
It is very easy to learn how to do this treatment and it is fun to do. You can see, and your clients will notice, the changes almost immediately. The sequence of the session follows the natural order of the body. All the basic principles of all of the Yamuna® work are applied. The treatment starts with direct bone stimulation, and then moves out from where the tendon attaches to the bone and then down into the body of the muscle towards its insertion. The ball is used as traction to achieve greater length, tone and freedom of movement. The constant goal of the therapist is to correct alignment of bones and muscles throughout the body and effortlessly increase the client’s freedom of movement.
People get off the table and know they have had a session. The legs feel free, the hips are super loose, and the torso and head are floating upward. Clients love this work!
