It is recommended to have support under the ankle for this technique. Begin lightly as the calves can be very tender! Slowly build intensity and depth of pressure as partner allows.
It is recommended to have support under foot for the leg receiving MFR; in addition, the opposite leg should be folded up and out if possible. Clients may perform small or large movements; with deep or shallow pressure.
Include upper / lateral Quad, and front-lateral area of hip (location of Tensor Fascia Lata muscle). Clients may think of where 'front pocket' is and as long as they don't target bony prominences, they will succeed. The use of other…
All 4's is the safest and mildest way to begin clients loosening each others tight lower backs. They can roll over the PSIS's if they want, with no harm done. Include upper Gluteal area as well as 'kidney' areas (which…
Start really gently with any neck MFR! Initial connective tissue hypersensitivity may mean sharp pain for the receiver, if you don't take it slowly to begin with. Use more of a "pulling" motion than a pushing motion; try and keep…
Will target Pec Major and Minor, and uses the client's own body to generate force and momentum for the release. Ensure the Posture Pro pushes the shoulder firmly to the ground to begin the release technique - this is key.
Never comfortable, but essential for improving Glenohumeral range of motion in the overhead press. Excellent for relieving impingement symptoms on any press movement.
Rolling up and own Thoracic spine is excellent for muscle release and activation. Vertical oscillations for joint mobility may be done with partners consent, and starting carefully only do on the stiff section of the Thoracic spine.

Do as a "selfie" to improve safety of the technique; be particularly aware of doing first few reps gently and slowly to allow the fascia to warm-up and not react in sharp pain **
