Inspire your massage practice with the possibilities of Side-lying! Side-lying techniques an often underutilized way to build whole-body awareness with your clients, bringing attention to the entire skeletal scaffolding for more ease of movement and greater access to grounding. With hips and shoulders free of the table, joint mobilizations can help clients feel their full range of motion in these joints (and the motion of the rib basket!) In this workshop you’ll:
- Learn joint mobilizations and whole body twisting from side-lying.
- Be introduced to the Gall Bladder meridian (useful for treating one-sided complaints).
- Find a sense of continuity and ease in addressing the whole body.
- Take a vacation from paying attention to muscles!
