    00:01 Soft tissue techniques generally involve kneading, traction, and inhibition.

    00:06 So let me show you how I do some soft tissue techniques on his neck.

    00:12 You find the muscle mass, look for any signs of swelling, any area of tender points or trigger points, and then you just generally move up and down the body of the muscle— helping lymphatic return, helping blood return, and kneading.

    00:36 Then you apply some traction and this will help enhance motion and help with the biomechanics.

    00:52 That’s the soft tissue technique.
