This session was conducted in open clinic for one hour. The client had a painful back after an intense session at the gym.
Within this session, I performed a soft tissue massage on the whole back, doing one side at a time. I used the techniques efflurage (5 minutes) petrissage (5 minutes) neuromusuclar techniques with efflurage (10 minutes) and another 5 minutes of efflurage, on each side of the back.
Areas for Improvement
Within this session, I didn’t communicate much with the client about the general pressure as much as normal, due to them being a chatty individual (therefore I got distracted).
What can I do next?
When a client is chatty, ensure to remain focused on the massage.
