I love the shuffle technique, by the way. I plan on trying to smoothly integrate that into my movements.

I've been doing massage for about 9 years as well. I use a similar lazy body mechanics technique and have developed issues in my right hip. I'm pretty sure my hip flexors are causing most of the problem. I know I also tend to lean to one side (usually my right) which is also causing problems in my low back. I use a wide spectrum of pressure throughout the day and need to set my table at a height that accommodates that. Any suggestions?
