Re: Training a 65 year old with sciatic nerve issues

I went to massage therapy school in NM, you'd be surprised how many skilled( or less skilled...) body workers of various disciplines live out in the middle of nowhere NM, at least those that have'nt been abducted by aliens...
they may just be hard to find

More importantly: if she has disc issues her first order of business should be to take care of that, it is highly likely that the disc issue is causing the sciatic pain. She may be feeling the pain in her butt or leg but the nerve originates in the lower lumbar/sacral area, any of the nerves above may be affected by disc degeneration or bulging and could also contribute to pain.( you didn't mention where she was feeling pain so I made some assumptions.)
