Touch Guide for Resistance

A great way to help your clients locate their internal resistance is by practicing the exercise Lower Lift.  During the Lower Lift exercise place your hands on the clients forearms. As the client raises their arms, gently press downward on the forearms and cue the client to press their arms up into your hands.  As they lower their arms place your hands under the forearms and cue “Press my hands down”.  Tell the client to continue with the exercise imagining your hands are still there to resist against.  Voila the resistance is found.
