Ayurvedic Yoga Massage - Scoliosis A Client Case Part 3
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage second session (29.04.14) with client A. Client A's feedback before we start the session was she was sore for the next 2 days after the first session but felt much better afterwards. She can still feel the backache in the lower, upper back and shoulder but not as much before the first session. She confirmed that there was positive improvement.
Deep tissue massage was performed initially, working on her problem areas. Passive stretches followed as usual. The first yoga stretch was the child's pose. Her back was still archy but there was a slight improvement from 8 inches gap between the abdominal and thigh to approximately 7 inches. Client A also noticed the difference how much she can stretch. This time I pushed further down with her agreement to stretch the entire back. Of course, I did it with care and caution. I stretched the back as far as she can take.
This was followed by more back stretch opening the thoracic area by placing my feet between the shoulder blade and pushing it forward as far as she can take progressively. Her feedback was "it felt good".
I worked on legs and did some stretching. At t he end of the session client A felt good and more loose. To be continued....
