SWEDISH MASSAGE Class 5: Attendance Questions Friction Review knots and cords/ petrissage and effleurage FRICTION Today: working directly with muscle tension—knots, adhesions, scar tissue Reminders: Show chart—scar tissue formation, muscle fibers stuck together decreased ROM, increased pain Have them find a sore spot on themselves —often around joints where muscles attach or somewhere in the UB/shoulders Push down into tissue, compress it, and then move in a circular or back and forth motion Not a gliding stroke—moving superficial tissue over deep tissue—rubbing one surface over another Fingers do not move over skin, but instead move skin over the tissue underneath Spot specific work—either right on a knot or at an attachment point to loosen whole muscle Great for breaking up adhesions and decreasing muscle tension Keeps tissues and muscle fibers separated and functioning smoothly Promotes healthy scar formation

    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.
