RE: Buffing?

Subject: Re: Buffing?

Thx. The sense i get is that i must press down a little to gently glide to
feel something. Is that right? I looked up buff which said to polish and i
dont know how to do that. Thx for clarifying.

Patrick replied:
Yes you do need to press just enough to feel the shape of the muscle, a
couple ounces of force, less than a pound of force.

The buffing is only for finding a muscle. This is just for locating the
thickest or highest part of the muscle. Once you've found this spot, then
you press and hold with a little more force. Maybe a pound or three pounds
of force, depending on how the person responds.

Warmly,
Patrick

Q: Buffing?

-----Original Message-----
Subject: Buffing?

I'm reading melting muscles step three on the trapezius. By buff do you mean
squeeze and travel? what exactly do you mean by this term? I get that u
cross over the muscle very slightly .Thx, n...

Hi N....,

When I say buffing, it is like drying a waxed car using a towel after you've
washed it.

The towel in this case reperesents the person's skin, or skin plus clothing
if you are doing the melting muscles clothed.

The car in this case would be the muscles.

So if you were using a towel on a car's fender you would feel the shape of
the metal fender by using the towel with your hands, rather than leaving the
towel on the car and feeling the shape by running your hands over the towel.


Does that make sense?

Does the Melting Muscle technique improve forward head and slumping posture problems?

Hi, J…, thanks for contacting me, and good questions!
 
My opinion is that head forward is not a problem in itself. I have head forward, according to a measurement using a “forward head inclinometer.” As long as it is not causing pain, why fix it?
 
My opinion is that postures and gestures like head position have more to do with how we want to be seen in the world. To me forward head says, “I’m humble”… which to me makes a person more approachable..
 
My opinion is that any kind of muscle work, fascia work and so forth to make the posture more “perfect” would not have much luck, or would not last, because you are trying to change his or her posture without changing the person’s self-image. But would you want that part of the person’s self-image?
 
Still, to answer your question, if all the head forward is, is muscles contracting too much on the front side of the head, yes, melting muscles will relax those muscles. However as soon as the person gets off the table and realizes proprioceptively where his or her head is now, and that is not where the brain wanted the head, the brain will immediately readjust the muscle contraction back to the way it wanted. I believe this would be true of any bodywork.
 
If the person has pain, that is a different situation. You didn’t ask about pain but only forward head and posture, so I hope this answers your good questions!
 
Warmly,
Patrick
