Two disk set. This 5 hour, two disk set shows how to perform structural massage, which starts with an easy range of motion full body assessment, testing each joint’s motion in each direction. Once a restriction is discovered, this DVD shows how to increase joint range and decrease pain by applying 4 different techniques. This includes static pressure into the muscles that restrict motion, then passive joint motion while applying pressure. Next active motion is shown: the client actively moving the joint through the range while the practitioner applies pressure to the joint. Finally active resistance is demonstrated: the client performs an isometric contraction several times as the practitioner moves the joint through the range.
The final insight of this work is the power of working on your client in the vertical, seated position. After the table work is complete, we move the client to sitting, and retest. If restriction remains, we perform powerful techniques to increase range very quickly with the client seated.
This work is gentle and very specific. If you have ever wanted to master body evaluation and experience a high degree of clinical mastery with incredible outcomes, welcome to structural massage.
