Have your client’s knee over the edge of the table so that 
their hip is slightly hyperextended. With you leg push your 
client’s foot back causing your client’s knee to flex and to 
stretch their quadriceps. Move your knuckles from the 
knee toward the ASIS while doing this movement. You can 
do this with the thigh rotated internally or externally to 
work different parts of the quadriceps. 

After showing your client this movement you can have 
your client kick their foot back themselves. Your client’s 
use of their hamstrings to flex their knee will cause the 
quadriceps to relax by reciprocal inhibition.
