Event description
Gain confidence and comfortability doing Massage in a Side-Lying position. This is an easy and extremely effective approach for everyone.

About this Event

You are enjoying your massage practice with all its gratifying rewards and then suddenly, a client walks in the door that cannot lie prone or supine. What do you do? Working in a side-lying position was barely taught at school.

How about the lady who is seven months pregnant with a very stiff back? Or your repeat client that is now recovering from shoulder surgery? Or an elderly man who has had hip replacement? Or a lady recovering from cancer with breast reconstruction who cannot lie prone yet?

As a healthcare professional, it is imperative that you don't miss a beat and suggest a “side-lying position”. Continue to be the expert re-establishing your clients’ confidence in you.

There are many components to a successful session. Laying on your side is very comfortable, and clients really do enjoy it. In this position, your hands-on massage technique offers a different technical approach and many new angles to explore. There is also the importance of draping for privacy and comfort. Spinal alignment along with the position of the hips is also considered.

Join me in this workshop and walk away feeling confident and effective working in this position. Side-lying massage challenges you to step out of the prone/supine box. Participating in this workshop will give you a new sense of freedom and capability. It is also incredibly easy! Have confidence in your new skills.

Instructed by Kerrie Flynn, LMT
