Thigh Massage Technique 2

This is an excerpt from Sports Massage by Susan Findlay.

Facing towards your client, place her foot on your shoulder with her knee bent at 90 degrees. To steady the limb, place one hand on the anterior lower portion of the thigh (not on the knee) and pull it towards your shoulder using enough strength to control the movement of the limb. Use the other hand to apply strokes to the posterior portion of the client’s thigh, using your fist, the heel of your hand or your forearm.

Tip: It is very important that you maintain an upright posture, keeping your torso in alignment with your legs and using your legs to generate the movement and power.
