This collection of videos demonstrate a range of soft tissue massage techniques in the side lying and prone positions, with a supine traction approach and then mobilising techniques for the lumbar spine in side lying and prone. The viewer should take note of the therapists handling skills so that each technique variation can flow from one to the next. Also note the controlled and slow speed of hand movements that the therapist uses.
