Many occupational hazards of adult life will be greatly alleviated by massage:

  • aching back and shoulder after a long office stint
  • exhaustion or overstrained muscles from physical labor or excessive exercise
  • circulatory problems from too little exercise by sedentary workers.
Massage can benefit you right down to the cellular level!

Advanced Massage Techniques

Forearm Effleurage: down erectors, palm down, crosses over spine, but contact is with proximal forearm. Use entire forearm when drawing up.

Sub-scapularis Friction: arm in small of back, trace under medial border of scapula. You can also do this just by lifting shoulder.

Elbow Friction: down erectors, keep chin over thumb. Afterwards, smooth out with Forearm Effleurage.

Scapular Effleurage/Friction: from opposite side of table. Out over sides of scap, draw up and grab. Good transition stroke (one side of table to another).

Gluteal Wringing: one hand glut. med, other hand on rotators. Good precursor to pelvic mobilization. 45 degree drape.

Pelvic Mobilization: 0 degree drape, and tuck in. One hand on sacrum, other on ASIS. Pull up, push down straight up with no sliding. Movie sacral hand up spine to ribs, then back down to sacrum. Stay on same side of spine as other hand. If you don't feel quadratus lumborum release, do QL pull.

Pelvic Gymnastics: see Pelvic Mobilization, but start with superior hand on ribs, don't push down, and don't move. Hold instead of bobbing.

QL Pull: with both hands (middle finger deepest) pull QL towards spine. Lock and lean. Then fan out.

Skin Rolling: walk fingers, thumb follows and skin rolls move with them. Can do this with or across muscle grain.

Integrating Back and BOL: Can undrape one leg and back (sheet in clump at sacrum, tucked into opposite leg), and then do lots of Lomi-Lomi style full-length-of-body full arm effleurage.
