There are many different approaches to massage and bodywork besides the classic Swedish Massage and acupressure chair massage techniques that are used at Spas and at wellness centers like the Catskills Bed and Breakfast in Stamford, New York.
Here is a popular technique for people who sit at desks all year: It is called “Gravity Rock to the outside of the legs.” If you are a bodywork or massage therapist this is how you do it.
- Move to the side of the table.
- Cross one of your client’s ankles over the knee of her other leg.
- Place one hand on the outside of the leg, just below the buttocks. Put the other hand directly in the bend of the straight knee. Now rock your hands gently nine times, applying the motion with your palms.
- Moving the second, lower hand about three inches at a time, and keeping your upper hand stable, proceed down to the ankle, rocking nine times every three inches.
- Repeat for the other leg.
