  1. very helpful, thank you. i have a client (a tall man) who has "forgotten" how to sit when you need him to, this will help.

  2. I can't kneel vary well. How can I get him to sit on the toilet? There's no room to stand beside him like in the video. And exactly where on the knee are you pressing?
