Description

Usually thought of mainly for pregnancy massage, side lying techniques can also be used for any clients who may be unable to lie comfortably in prone or supine positioning. Individuals with recent surgeries, obese clients or simply for easier access to certain areas of the body are all potential recipients of side lying massage techniques. It can easily be integrated into traditional massage techniques and often provides the best access to shoulder, neck, low back and hip areas as well as allowing for more effective stretches in those areas.

Using the instructional set of DVDs and accompanying text you will:

  • Define the cautions and contraindications for side lying massage techniques.
  • Identify the techniques and sequence for side lying variations on the client's back, including muscles of spine, neck, shoulder, cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas, while facing the client.
  • Recognize the techniques and sequence for side lying variations on the client's back while standing behind the client.
  • List and describe side lying techniques and sequence used on the arm of the client.
  • Discover the side lying techniques and sequence used on the top portion (thigh) of the client as well as explain recommended draping techniques.
  • Investigate the side lying techniques and sequence used on the lower leg (calf), including transitioning to foot.
  • Identify the side lying techniques and sequence for the foot of the client.
  • Review additional side lying techniques, including facilitated stretching.

Presented by Dr. James Mally, massage therapist and instructor since 1979, you will be able to enhance your practice by being able to work with clients in a more three-dimensional way.

What was a surprise to me and very much appreciated was the way the manual folded out and sat on the desk. I highly recommend this set-up for courses with manuals.
