acupressure question

hi all i just started my final semester in massage therapy and i am taking acupressure/shiatsu ..

here is my question after sitting in the seiza "pose" to perform the massage/routine, my upper hamstrings hurt for the next 2 days ( my first class was on monday) i was wondering if you guys/ ladies have had the same experience and if so what you did to help it from happening again, BTW i am overweight,

if you havent had the experience what would you suggest i try..

thanks in advance

Reflexology and Acupressure

Hello all,

I know a few of the members practice both of these modalities and I am looking for some more information.

What should I be looking for in a program that teaches these modalities?

What are the certifications needed?

I am looking at using these plus cranial sacral in my business. I am planning to do massage for PTSD (Iraq Vets mainly) using cranial, Multiple Sclerosis ( reflexology, my sister who has MS gets a lot of benefit from this) and acupressure for general health. I would like to hear from people who specialize in these types of clients to see the best way to go about getting clients and what special situations have arisen in your practices that I may come across.

Any stories or information would be greatly appreciated. I am taking the NCBTMB test as soon sometime in January (waiting on letter to register) and will be taking a Cranial Sacral class in June if all goes well.

Thank you,
Kat
