Limited range of motion on hyperextension of thigh.
Need for increased ROM at hip (dancers, athletes).
Stitching pain around inguinal ligament.
Use a pillow under the abdomen if there is an excessive lordosis.
Always keep pressure on the sacrum in an inferior direction while doing this technique to isolate the stretch to the hip and to protect the low back.
Cradle your client’s leg with your forearm so that their calf is resting on your forearm and your hand is proximal to their knee which is extended. With your other hand press on the sacrum inferiorally. Lift the leg and circumduct it in both directions as far as it goes comfortably.
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.
