He and she who feels it, knows it, and it is only she and he who knows it, who actually knows what to do.
Sometimes we say a thousand words, give a thousand explanations and yet nothing changes – and then one touch done in a certain way changes everything.

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Bodyhood Pilates tutorials.
Today I am going to show you – via a PADAD fascial massage technique – the correct outwards rotation of our shoulders, which is a prerequisite position for all back-bending exercises such as the Pilates Swan, Swan Dive, and Double Leg Stretch. The shoulder facial massage will facilitate kinesthetic awareness in the outwards rotation of our shoulder girdle.

Let me take you on the journey of what and how I guide so you know what and how to guide when practicing this therapeutic exercise with someone you love, respect and trust.

I sit on my knees to her left. I support her left shoulder joint with my left hand and place my right hand on her left elbow. I make sure that her gluteal muscles are disengaged and her breathing is even.[/cs_text][x_image type=”none” src=”https://bodyhood.christopherrapp.at/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Start-Shoulderotate_web.jpg” alt=”Pilates movement awareness exercise shoulder rotation outwards inwards training therapeutic fascial massage” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” style=”text-transform:none!important;padding-bottom:10px;”]The procedure[/x_custom_headline][cs_text]
[/cs_text][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]

I ask my partner to inhale as I internally rotate her left shoulder, and then to hold her breath while I pause for 3 seconds. I then ask her to exhale as I gently pull her arm and externally rotate her shoulder joint, and simultaneously I ask her to lift her chest up without gripping her gluteus or shoulder. I again ask her to inhale and hold her breath for 5 seconds while I pause, and then to exhale and lower her chest back to the mat.

Why don’t you try them, too? I say to myself…

• I make sure that my partner doesn’t engage her gluteus and her shoulders as she lifts her chest upwards.
• I check for any sign of anticipatory anxiety.
• I check for any sign of an additional anterior tilt of her pelvis during the lift.
• I am kind, gentle and mindful of what I do.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h2″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” style=”text-transform:none!important;padding-bottom:10px;”]Therapeutic value
[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify”]The Shoulder Rotation Fascial Massage

• changes the perception of how we perceive our back, especially valuable for those with hyper lordosis.
• reduces torsion tension in the neck – most likely a “result” of extensive cyber activities.
• alleviates rotator cuff syndrome.

Try it & fly with it!
