Module 1:

 

It's very important for therapist to know about sciatica, because nowadays most of the people who works on door they have problem with their back and some of them it ends with sciatica problems specially when the pain stay for long term without having any treatment.

 

Thanks Shama for this course it's very helpful and very important information.

Module 2:

Thanks for the information, i really found the sciatica tests are useful because when i do massage for my client with lower back pain i saw what you've been said and i feel different between the two legs specially when i do the straight legs left. My nephew has problem and when i do massage for hem i found one of his foot is going more to left side even when his walking and when i tried to do the straight leg left he can't straight it and it start shivering. I asked him how you always set he said this legs always under his body and he sleep also in a wrong posture even when he walks. so i recommend hem to do some stretching exercises with the massage.

Is am i right or no?

Module 3

The rocking for lower back is relaxing the area and it moves the hip which make it more flexible and release the tension on the area, this what i feel and this what my client says.

Can i ask you, if someone have surgery on the spine, is it ok to do rocking or no?

 

Thanks Laugh

Module 4

 

I found working with fingertips is easier than working with my elbow but maybe because my client mostly ladies  and their body are not large as mens.

The wiggling and percussion techniques are very relaxing for lower back.

Certainly, you choose the right tool for a particular client. The techniques are all options to choose from, not mandatory sequences.

Module 5:

This session is not that easy and it needs a lot of practice especially working with knee technique. I liked all the techniques and i wish someone can do it for me. My partner also she likes this session especially working on buttocks.

Is there something you can recommend to do it for my self if i have pain in lower back, i do stretching but is there any thing else? 

 

ThanksLaugh

Some people roll around on tennis balls, either one of them or two stuffed in a sock. Then there are "massage hammers" with infrared heat lamps. I have a couple and use them on myself - works good.

Module 6:

 

I liked all the techniques for buttocks area but i'm scared to do it with my knee because i'm heavy and my partner is not so i thought even if i tried to be light i will be heavy on her, so i done only the techniques with forearm and elbow. Is i'm right or i can do the knee techniques even if the client is thin and has a small body?

If someone feel pain on lower back after leaning a lot on face down, is it better to put billow under the chest or abdomen area to release the pain or do you recommend another options?

The stretching techniques it isn't work perfectly on the beginning but later it feels very relaxing and refreshing.

 

Thanks Shama for these wonderful techniques Laugh

You could do the knee techniques on a smaller person even if you are heavier. However in this case you had to either support yourself with your hands to reduce the weight, or you have to stay more on your toes so that you don't put all your weight into your knees.

But the easy answer is that if you work on a much smaller person, you would not use the knee techniques and instead use hands, forearms or elbows.

Sorry what about the people who feel pain on lower back after leaning a lot on face down, is it better to put pillow under their chest or abdomen area to release the pain or do you recommend another options?

You mean they experience pain because of your work? If you use the one-to-ten questioning method to know how far you can go, then it should never get to the point that someone experiences pain. The measure of your work is that it reduces the pain. If it causes the opposite effect, then either the wrong technique is used or too much pressure is applied.

Aside from that, I always keep some pillows handy in case someone needs support to help them feel better.

Ok thanks i never done for someone and they feel pain after i finish but for my self many times i tried massage and after she finish i feel a lot of pain on my lower back so i thought even the pressure is to strong or my back muscle is week and when i lay to my face for long time the muscle become tied but when you said about supporting someone with pillow maybe i will use it next time when someone do massage for me and i will see if i feel different.

Actually most of the stretching techniques are very strong, my partner can't handle it maybe i need to work on the hip area more before the stretching! but it really nice stretching i think if someone try to do for many sessions until it becomes more flexible he will feel relax and the pain will release.

 

Thanks

Sounds like the therapist who worked on your back overdid it a little.

You can do all the techniques in a very gentle way. Sure, they can be strong with enough power, but they can be just as easily done very gently. It is often more difficult to do them gently because that requires more sensitivity and feeling.
