Module 12


New all time favorite move! The elephant walk on the 90*degree knees to work the sacrum. What a fabulous feeling that is and everyone has agreed! I watch some of these moves and think it makes so much sense! Why haven't I ever tried that to get movement in that area? It's so cool learning these tried and true maneuvers for areas that are critical but so hard to get deeply into. But if someone has had a low back fusion is this still ok?

"But if someone has had a low back fusion is this still ok?"  -  You don't press on the lower back, but primarily on the sacrum. But it is always a good idea to ask the client if there is any discomfort in their lower back - just in case. Better safe than sorry.
