This session was the second half of open clinic for one hour. The client had painful hamstrings.
Primarily, I cleaned the work station, placed the massage mediums on display, put down coach roll, washed my hands and tied my hair up. For this session, after assessing the client during the consultation form and discovering that the surrounding muscles, joints range of movement and alignment was all ok, I performed a soft tissue massage followed by a hamstring stretch (soft tissue release).
Areas for Improvement
By this second hour, my hands were very achy and therefore I felt as though I did perform the best I could due to this.
What can I do next?
- Ensure I use other body parts as well as my thumbs predominantly.
- Stretch my wrists, fingers and hands between clients.
