Occipitalis muscle - This muscle is sometimes considered a distinct muscle but some schools of thought consider it a part of the occipitofrontalis muscle (see last post).⠀
Artery: Occipital artery⠀
Nerve: Posterior auricular nerve (facial nerve)⠀
Occipitofrontalis Muscle - It consists of two parts: 2 occipital bellies and 2 frontal bellies.⠀
Nerve: Facial nerve⠀
Action: Raises the eyebrows⠀
Don't like those pesky forehead wrinkles? The occipitofrontalis muscle is to blame. In humans this muscle helps with facial expressions.⠀
So this is a continuation of a good massage routine from Massage Whisperer Tip #22 . We already discussed the begining and end of a massage. However there is a middle. These are our WOW strokes. We instinctively know this and are conditioned by our client's oohs and ahhs to perform them repeatedly. There are usually 3 in every massage therapists repertoire. But do we purposely consider them? I worked with a wonderful massage therapists named Cindy. She had this one WOW stroke, where she buried her fingers underneath the clients back and then slid up the sides of the spine. Unfortunately for Cindy this move would injure her elbows and forearms from constant repetition. When I asked her about it. She replied it was a stroke that all her clients looked forward to. There are usually 3 WOW strokes in every routine. Think about them and if one of them wears you out, then replace it with another WOW stroke. Your clients will not leave you over one move. What are your WOW strokes? If you want to see more? Start Following!

I had an amazing weekend at the USA GOLD, Olympic Lifting meet providing Sports Event Massage with the medical team at the world famous York Barbell, pioneers of the adjustable barbell, in York Pennsylvania.
The medical team is top notch and many are literally world class having served at the Olympic Games.
I'm both humbled & inspired by the giants in my field & truly thankful to be able to work with & learn from so many great minds & practitioners & all practically in my own back yard. You make me want to & help me to be better than I am. This is a moving target!
To all of the athletes who pulled out all the stops to test their limits & compete, even against themselves, thank you! You make this possible. Stay strong!

How do you benefit from your #MassageTherapist also being your #Doula ? Through massage you can learn to tune into your body, use your breath to release tension, and find a quiet space within. As your #LMT , I can learn where you hold stress, how you best let go, and what kind of pressure/techniques you respond well to. We will practice navigating a space that focuses on you, while nurturing your body and the life within. We can use all of this on your birthing day. Can I confidently and effectively serve a family as a doula without previously working with them? Absolutely I can, and I have! This is just a perk, a way to build and strengthen our relationship, so I can serve you to the best of my ability on your birthing day. I'm grateful to have already worked with this beautiful family through pregnancy and look forward to being there for them on their big day!
