Quadriceps Massage

Quadriceps Massage

1. You should perform gentle massaging to the meridians in the legs. You’ll begin by sitting on the floor. Your knees should be bent and the soles of your feet should be placed together. Allow your knees to naturally relax downwardly. Take the palm of your hand and place it on the back of your knee. Begin making long massaging strokes toward the groin area. Repeat the motion for fifteen to twenty times.


Then, you’ll slowly rise to a standing position. With your palms facing down, you’ll begin massaging at your hips. You will slowly move the massage down the back of your legs to the foot area. From the foot, you will move to the inside of your legs and massage up to your abdomen (Figures 225 and 226). You may repeat the massage technique nine times.

2. Take hold of the hamstring muscle and release it, continuing the massaging technique from just under your buttocks to the back of your knee.

3. Using the palm of your hand, propel your hand from just under your buttocks to the back of your knee.

4. You may depress your fingers into especially tender areas across the hamstring and massage in a circular motion.
