With your client’s foot opposite their other knee, press their knee away from you as far as is comfortable, while holding their shoulder to the table. This is a non-specific stretch as it works all the external rotators of the femur as well as some of the rotators of the spine. This stretch may help with sciatic pain.
Have your client attempt to bring their knee back toward you against your resistance - only as strong and as long as is comfortable.
As the piriformis and external rotators fatigue, release the stretch, allowing your client’s knee to come back toward you.

The Massage Technique Library was recently rebuilt from the ground up. The new library is much faster and more secure than the previous versions. There is an improved search function, and an enhanced comment system. Soon there will be a way to save your favorite techniques in a favorites menu.
The library is currently free and open to the public, so please check it out while you can. No login or registration is necessary.
On May 10, 2018 the library will once again be for members only, with the exception of the free section.
We are not raising the price, so membership will continue to be only $7 per month or $72 per year. There will be a way to sign up for the library on May 10th. Current library members will have access to the library without signing up again but may need to reset their password.
With the rebuilding of over 800 interlinked pages with video content, there are bound to be some errors and glitches. Please let us know of any problems or concerns by using our contact form here. Your help is greatly appreciated.
I hope you enjoy the new library, and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
