Indications

Menstrual cramps.

Cautions

Always do this technique through the drape or through clothing. It’s best to explain this technique first and ask permission before beginning.

Technique

With your client prone, work around the lumbar vertebrae, the sacral foramen, and the sacroiliac joints.

Then after asking permission press into the area medial to the ischial tuberosity (sit bone), working through the drape. With a deep circular motion press laterally into the bone for about thirty seconds. This stimulates the pudendal nerve which affects the uterus.

If cramps are recurrent or severe there may be nutritional or hormonal imbalances that need to be addressed (i.e. calcium or magnesium deficiency).
