Auth Method Addressing the Root of Back and Shoulder Pain BY SHARI AUTH T 62 massage & bodywork march/april 2011 he most common request I receive as a massage therapist is to work on a client's upper back and shoulders. In fact, the shoulder rub is a cliché of the massage profession. Most massage therapists can relate to being at a party, introducing themselves as a massage therapist, and in jest, someone offering his or her shoulders to rub. See "Auth Method: A Guide to Forearm Massage," Massage & Bodywork, March/April 2010, page 72, for an introductory description of this technique.
