    SMRT Pressure

    This morning I worked on a woman who had shoulder and neck pain. She does not like pressure of any kind. She comes to me because SMRT is gentle, painless, and highly effective. When I first touched her superior and posterior right shoulder, she squirmed and scrunched up her face.

    I worked around her scapula while she was supine (she also doesn’t like prone), using SMRT positions to increase scapular mobility and decrease muscle tone and tenderness. She talked throughout the treatment. 10 minutes after I began, I re-palpated. There was no squirming or scrunching. I asked how it felt, she said it felt really good “actually”.

    Certain populations need gentler, yet effective, bodywork. Join us in Moorhead, MN by registering here.
