"Thank you, Cindy - these are well phrased words. I took your advice and poked in the anatomy books some more and feel more confident with the area and therefore the work that follows. Some good results have already ensued. Thanks again! O."

"Olga -- Viktor has added something I do as well for shoulder release, but it has more to do with acupressure, and that is working Lung meridian -- especially LU #1 and #2, as well as Large Intestine #15 in side position."

Cindy L. Williams replied to Olga Chwascinska's discussion technique with scapulae in the group Massage Students

"Nice! Thanks for the tip, Diedre. I have indeed been drawn to work on these particular clients side-lying, as they also tend to really congest in the sinuses face-down. I love how it all fits together. Thanks, O."

Diedre Seeley replied to Olga Chwascinska's discussion techniques for scapulae in the group Deep Tissue Massage Therapists
"If you use any acupressure work in your practice, you can have the client in side position. Work SI#9 and SI#10 until you feel a release, then work all along the scapulae."

techniques for scapulae

Hello all, When I placethe client's hand low on their back and then lift that shoulder, most scapulae lift right up off the ribcage. However, I see several60+ yr old women whose shoulder blades don't lift up in this position. What types ofstrokes should I work with and how in which areas to help free that up?Thanks!O.See More

Thanks for your comment, Olga. Yoga is a great way to stay in shape for doing massage. You may want to add some specific strengthening exercises as well. Remember that the most effective approach to self-care and injury prevention is holistic and multifaceted, so to stay healthy, you also need to be aware of risk factors for injury in your work and home life, use proper body mechanics, pay attention to ergonomics (work station set-up, scheduling, etc.) and a number of other factors. Keep up with the Save Your Hands group and take a look at the www.saveyourhands.com web site for more information.

Welcome Olga, may the magic of the heavens always touch your heart and hands! For me, it is always best to get a referral from a Physician or PA if only to cover my back and consider my scope of practice. As a LDT practitioner I would highly recomend that you take courses in it (Dr. Bruno Chicly's course is excellent.) Many Blessings Lore
