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