Tension through back of neck.
Be careful with any client who has had a recent whiplash injury. The forward flexion may be uncomfortable if there is insufficient cervical lordosis.
This technique is best followed by one that accentuates the cervical lordosis, such as the anterior posterior movement (technique #31).
Lift client’s head up from table and prop it up on your stomach.
Have client breathe and relax into position ie: neck and torso flexed, shoulders retracted. Use your hands and knuckles to massage erector spinae and levator scapulae muscles.
