massage and bodywork professionals

a community of practitioners

I am looking for guidance specifically for massage techniques that can help.  My friend recently had lower back surgery and it corrected his posture so much, it's unbelievable.  He is now UPRIGHT instead of hunched way over, looking at the ground.  But he still has a very prominent head thrust forward thing going on and I am hoping that I can help him with this.  Stretching exercises?  Massage techniques?  I would appreciate any info or direction towards videos, etc.   Thanks so much,  Donna

Go to YouTube, and type in Upper Cross Syndrome. There you will find a lot of videos on that very subject.

Are you saying your friend has Parkinson's Disease?

I look forward to a more detailed response.  Thanks in advance.


Yes, the one who recently had lower back surgery.  He does have Parkinson's Disease.  Not sure what more details I can provide but I'd be willing if you let me know more of what you need.  Thanks!  ~~Donna

You may want to look at the chapter in Norman Doidge's book "The Brain's Way of Healing " which discusses John Pepper's "Conscious Walking" for his Parkinson's.

It is my understanding that pacing at a certain rate can create change.  I have not read the book, but had a discussion about it with someone this past week-end.

You can also look him up.  Here is a link to a past course he taught: http://www.themovementcenter.com/new-events/2016/9/23/conscious-wal...
