Moving a client’s body on the massage table in a skillful, creative, and attuned way is one of the fine skills of an advanced bodyworker. Gentle stretches not only open the body’s tissues and joints, effectively increasing the client’s range of motion, but also support the soul’s capacity to let go and surrender into a natural state of fluidity, grace, and aliveness. By weaving flowing long strokes and creative stretches into your work, you can create a sense of dancing with the body, which adds freedom, fun, and freshness to your massage.
