11/10-11/2018, Tucson - Side-Lying Massage and Stretching
This workshop will teach you how to safely and effectively work with clients in a side-lying position. Students will learn how to comfortably position clients so that both the client and the therapist don't risk injury; especially those with low back, hip or shoulder pain. Student will learn how to easily drape their clients. Students will learn the benefits of side-lying massage, as well as the contraindications and current research.
Students learn many advanced massage techniques for the low back, hips, neck and shoulder, including PNF stretches and other passive and active movements aimed at helping dysfunctional joints and soft tissue. Students will learn to facilitate normalization of nerve function and myofascial organization in painful areas with trigger point, structural integration, Swedish and cross-fiber treatment protocols.
Side-Lying Massage teaches students more ways to work with a wide variety of clients from maternity clients to facing health problems to athletes. Students will also be able to explore, with more access into the multidimensional layers with movements and stretching, getting into muscles like they have never been able to do before in prone or supine.
