Hi! Thanks for the tips ! The rods in her legs are along the femurs in both legs . But sidelying for her is very difficult so i never put her in that position. I have been looking into different classes but in my area there are so few . I have been cking youtube for different massage vids , being careful as such because some are not what they appear to be . Also , I use dual purpose from biotone which I love ! If needed , I simply add extra arnica oil to it but just a few drops . I found the essential oil for it on the web and love the stuff! But I am also aware this form of it is extremely potent and should be used with caution . Do you by chance have a list of vids and where to find them online? That would be so helpful! Thanks again for your advice !

Hi Elizabeth, Yes you really can work the whole body using the forearms. I just finished making an instructional massage video demonstrating how to do this. It will be out in a couple of weeks (I will send you a note, when it's out), meanwhile the intro to the video is on youtube.com just search under my name to find it. Good luck, shari auth

thanks for the info ! appreciate your help! and i will give that a shot and see if i can get a comfortable routine down that would suit . as an MT , i have many willing friends who would let me work on them ! but helping some of my community's elderly stay on their feet and be as active as they can is one of my goals. i don't have a vast knowledge of myofascial release , but nothing i can't look up or try to find out more about ! i also still have all my massage school notes and books with loads of stretches and techniques in them to put together a really good treatment plan for my client . i have also still to finish the homestudy course on hot stones. thanks again for your help !

hi , elizabeth ! thanks for the invite! but got one for you that i am in need of advice. i have an elderly lady in her 70's with rods in both legs and knees both have been operated on as well as her back . i have been doing just basic massage for her because her pain threshold is very low, and i'm not real comfortable with going in deep on her like when i work on a younger person . she suffers also with arthritis and diabetic to boot . i have also noted some swelling in the legs , especially at the ankles the worst . i don't know much on lymph drainage to really help there but hoping you may have some advice on how best to help her. thanks!

sorry it took so long to comment back , been at least a little more busy and with cold weather closing in here , have house repairs in need of being done too . but would to share some of your techniques on hot stone and how you tweaked it for the softening of scar tissue. i have over 7 regular clients that have large scars due to surgeries and accidents that could truly benefit from it !

i have ideas of which way i would like to go because i don't think massage is just about relaxation . it's one of the best preventatives there is but also a way to help the body heal. i started a home study course in hot stones and hoping to get my ceus in that soon . i would like to specialize more in the medical side of massage rather than just the pampering side . maybe sports , not really sure.
