I agree with Conorblue, 3-point small areas at a time.

with heavier clients its really the only way, but you really will feel it in your fingers, its hard to keep stretchy/heavy skin taut for long periods of time. take breaks often! ha

have them lay down on their stomach and put the arm on a arm rest slightly lower. make a 90 degree angle with the arm and body. that way its right in front of you, then use the 3 point stretch. it works well especially with the back of the arm. make sure that your table has a high weight limit.

I agree with laying them on their stomach. Even for your not so heavy clients, the back of the arm can be a b1tc4. Off the subject please check your posts for spelling and punctuation. It makes the thread a lot easier to read and you will find people will respond better.
