"Craniosacral therapy :)
It is my passion & the more I practice it, the more fascinating it is (and this is after 16 years of specializing in it!).
My original plan when I went to massage school was to go into sports massage - I was…"
"Yea the fold n hold is sort of counter intuitive...And the finger that's on the trigger point is just there to monitor the trigger point.. You just press hard enough to know its there... Then fold around it, and find that position of…"

"Not sure what video you saw, but PR puts the muscle in a shortened state and holds it there with a gentle compression. The only movement that actually happens is the process of putting the body part (with the identified muscle) into the…"
"Sounds similar to Whitney Lowe's AES, in which the therapist moves the client's bodypart through its extended range of motion (passive movement), in order to "reeducate the neuromuscular system". I'll google positional…"
