In this lesson you will learn another series of techniques which go together really well; called the stretch side series. This series consist of 3 different techniques. The first 2 techniques need to be done on both sides and are technically more difficult to perform; details will be important with these techniques.
The first technique is a ‘side stretch’ which will flow into a head/neck roll. The last technique is called a ‘crossed arm stretch’
In this lesson there will be 2 video’s covering more techniques.
1. Stretch side series (2 techniques)
2. Crossed arm stretch
This note can be placed by any stretching or mobilization technique. Clients have a wide variation of how mobile/flexible they are within the neck. So be aware of these differences between clients. It doesn’t mean that one neck is more ‘healthier’ then another, they are just different.
