Module 30

My husband liked the palming/elephant walk up the erectors from the side lying position but he wanted me to go harder and i couldn't.  He is so tight from all of his computer work and as I rocked into him I met strong resistance there was no pliability. I like doing this one with him prone- I can apply more pressure w/o it feeling forced or pushing him over. He liked this series when I put a standard pillow into his chest and under his arm, pillow between legs and one under head. He really enjoyed the thumb press above the spine and I was able to get into a groove once I learned how to walk the knees as I went up and down the spine (thanks for that advice). Also liked me leaning on erectors.

Spinal twist #1- He didn't get much out of- told him it was a warm up for the next one. The next one was hard to find the rhythm, but when I did he really liked it. It is tricky-long torso on client short torso on me.

The back bend, hip flexor stretch was his favorite, but boy was that a challenge for me. I am a very strong girl, but his leg felt like 200 lbs. I will have to work on ergonomics for sure!!!!!!!!

Thanks Shama!

On large and heavy people who need strong back work, you should definitely do that in the prone position. The side position can be useful, but for all practical purposes I do back work in the prone position as much as possible. Then you can use your elbows, forearms and knees much more effectively.

Regarding the hip flexor stretch, try this: Instead of holding the shoulder with your upper hand, use both hands on the leg. That will give you more power for heavy legs.
