Watching clients move when they think no one is looking can tell you so much about why some of their issues remain unresolved. How they stand, sit, get up, or even put on their shoes can give you clues about their habitual movement patterns in a way that not even equipment can tell you. The devil is in the details as they say, so keep your eyes and eyes open at all times. Look for asymmetries, abnormalities, or a hitch in their giddy up. All of these are pieces of the movement puzzle, and can lead to transformation later.  See what we mean in the following video.

    Do you recommend footwork with bone rhythms to unwind the lower leg? Or a more specific movement or manual release?

    That is exactly what I would do Amanda! I would probably start with a very detailed foot release using a tennis ball that I learned from Marie-Jose Blom. That would give Jen the availability within her connective tissue to re-establish the spiral of the bones in her foot to a more optimal position. Then I would move to some diaphragmatic work to help assist a lessening of the torso tension and to start to talk to the crus of the diaphragm which will aid in the leg release. From here bone rhythm footwork would be brilliant!
