Anyone that has spent the day gripping a shovel, rock climbing or doing massage knows what it feels like when your forearms are all jacked up. The veins start to protrude and the wrist is funky and there’s this pressure that you just can’t seem to release. This pose will take care of ALL of that! It’s super easy and super luscious. Enjoy…
How to Work the Sen Kalathari on the Inside of the Upper and ForeArms:
- Have your partner lie on their back and take their arm straight out to the side from their shoulder. Lay it down, palm up.
- Kneel in line with their elbow, facing the arm.
- One of your hands starts near the shoulder; this hand works only the upper arm. Your other hand starts under their elbow; this hand works only their lower arm.
- Lean into the top hand; lean back to release. Then, lean into the bottom hand; lean back to release.
- Walk your hands down and up the arms several times (avoiding the elbow), both hands always progressing in the same direction.
- Repeat with thumbing, then finish with palming.
Benefits: Releases muscle tension and moves lactic acid in tired, tight arms. Indirectly provides relief for wrists and hands.
Cautions: Never place pressure on the elbow or wrist. Note that the inside line of the upper arm may have nerve sensitivity so you will want to start gently and avoid any areas that cause pain.
