This video demonstrates mainly cross fibre soft tissue massage approaches to the Thoracic Erector Spine & Scapulo-Thoracic muscles with the patient in the prone and side lying positions. Particular attention should be paid to the therapists use of smooth handling to alter technique positions, moving of the patient and their upper extremity which plays a part in the soft tissue techniques and their effectiveness.
