AT1 Massage Techniques The Bridge

• The Bridge The fingertips straddle spine at mid back, thumb tip/pad is positioned at side of spine (so thumbnail is facing practitioner). In a bridge position, move the thumb alongside of spine superiorly toward the practitioner. Allow the hand to “collapse” and flatten as thumb turns around the superior angle of scapula. Continue on as if doing a downstroke side. Drag back, retracing your path. End with palm lifted off the back, fingers making a bridge shape. Don’t hyperextend thumb joint. Support with other hand if necessary.
