Ive been practicing counterstrain techniques for my upcoming OMM practical. Im 56 and 120 lbs. I have no problem if the patient is my size, or even a little bigger. My boyfriend however outweighs me by about 80 pounds. Ive been practicing on him, and its incredibly frustrating. There are aspects of techniques that are just not possible, such as some of the lifting, and even just reaching around him. Since its counterstrain, all the movements are supposed to be passive, and I feel like Im just trying unsuccessfully to lift dead weight.. Since I need one hand on the tenderpoint, half the time I cant even reach the next body part I need to sidebend or rotate. Ive practiced with other classmates that are smaller, and I have no problem, but Im concerned about getting paired up with someone on a practical thats much bigger than I am. I also dont want to be limited to practicing on people my size, and our OMM department streses that we should be comfortable performing techniques on people of all sizes. Has anyone else had this problem.. any advice?
