In the beginning of the 1960s the massage of the sacrum (see picture) was added to the massage of the calves for later to be expanded further by the addition of the massage of the hip joint. It needs to be stated that “The Massage Therapy of Dr. Pressel” was indeed Dr. Pressel’s achievement, but the content was heavily flavoured by Lies Pressel, for instance by the addition of the massage of the sacrum and the understanding of the deeper spiritual connections.

The collaboration with Lies Pressel did not only result in the addition of new grips, but also in an extended duration of treatment caused by the new built-in rest periods that allowed the patients to absorb the effects of the massage on a deeper level.
