Sink into a spot. After good depth of pressure achieved, hand trembles. 2. Try to let muscles above the elbow relax, so just forearm is working. 3. Use fingers, thumb, heel of hand, whole hand 4. Do sparingly, for shorter periods of time. TAPOTEMENT (PERCUSSION) Rhythmic striking of the body, using springy blows at a quick pace Tricks muscle into relaxing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
