j. Traction techniques

In this lesson you learn 3 lengthening/traction techniques (which are also mobilization techniques). In my own Neck therapy sessions I always include one or 2 traction techniques. As I noticed they have an profound effect on my clients, especially on clients who are in pain. The last technique of this lesson I always use in my massage and I finish my Neck Therapy session with that technique
