    Definitely keep that worry in mind as some students – especially older students – will push back. They will get anxious or even panic a bit. You need to help reassure them that you are doing this to help not hurt. When students push back, it can be instinctual to push harder which makes it feel like a “me vs you” situation which doesn’t help. Staying calm and anticipating the push back ahead of time can allow you to respond more constructively.
