RHYTHMIC ROCKING IN PRACTICE

RHYTHMIC ROCKING IN PRACTICE

Rocking during a massage session can help lull and comfort clients and create openings in ease and trust. Gentle rocking can also benefit structure and function and help clients let go of habituated patterns. Here I will share three examples of clients who have benefited when I have rocked all or parts of them gently, rhythmically and appropriately. (David Lobenstine’s introduction to rocking as a massage therapy approach, in his article, “Rock On! Soothe Clients with Satisfying Contact,” in the June print issue of MASSAGE Magazine, offers advice on why and how you can subtly move your clients.) See if you can find some inspiration from these stories: a mother of two expecting and then caring for her third baby; a retired computer programmer with arms and hands still numb from decades of work; and an 11-year old working through her parents’ divorce and the transformations of her own maturing body.   Source: https://www.massagemag.com/rhythmic-rocking-in-practice-85116/
