Sometimes a client will benefit from self-care at home - either with the goal of decreasing their pain level, increasing their flexibility, or maybe just helping to relieve chronic tension in a specific area.
Here are some resources for massage therapists who are looking for “handouts” to give to their clients.
- The book ‘Maintaining Body Balance Flexibility and Stability’ by Leon Chaitow not only helps massage therapists in their practice, but also has several handout sheets that can be photocopied (permission is given!) and sent home with clients. A great resource for massage therapists!
- Massage Therapy Practice Website - This stretch index has several handouts that can be printed off and given to clients who are concerned with tension in the specific area: back of the neck, hip flexors, shoulders, etc.
