I have a whole-system work that I provide with extra work as needed, but being new, I sometimes wonder how those of you who have been at this for a while know when to move one, when to stick in a place or when to pump an area (such as the solar plexus).
Do you have a specific feeling you are waiting for? Does something just reach out and let you know what is best for the reflex point? Do you feel a vibration or an energy change (and if so, how do you work with it).
Etc. Etc. Etc.
Any conversation would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!

How does that translate? Well, here is an example: if I feel an area of restriction - the typical 'hot, hard or tender - then I apply gentle sustained compression into that area until it softens or cools or becomes less tender.
The 'magic' length of time for fascia to begin to respond is 90-120 seconds, so that is how long to apply the compression, at a minimum.
