Tight hamstrings. Inability to touch toes with the legs straight. Low back pain.
Ask for feedback and proceed slowly.
Do not bounce with this stretch as it can tear the hamstring muscle or tendons.
Do not do a hamstring stretch if there has been a recent hamstring strain (pull).
With your client supine place one hand on anterior thigh above knee and place your other hand behind your client’s heel.
Ask for feedback then slowly raise their leg. As you near the end of the range of motion with this stretch ask your client to breathe deeply and stretch on the exhale.
Stop when you receive feedback to stop or when there is resistance or the other leg begins to raise. Hold this stretch for at least six to ten seconds. Bring your clients leg back down slowly and do vibration.
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.
