Equipment details for Sarga Table: Adaptations for Raised Massage Tables:

In order to safely use Sarga Bodywork techniques on raised massage tables, students are required to either complete the equipment safety training in this online course, or our in-person course, Sarga Table 1. In addition, students will need to configure their massage table with the appropriate equipment for Sarga Bodywork techniques on raised massage tables.

If you intend to enroll in this course after completing Sarga Floor 1, 2 & 3, you will need a different equipment configuration than what is required in our floor-based courses. There are two options for Sarga Bodywork's raised-table equipment:
