Sidelining- The Secret Bread and Butter of Massage: $90, 4CE’s
Jenny Mapes, CPT, LMP, 10 year movement specialist, 2012 Olympic Training athlete, 8 year athletic clinician.
A half day intensive course focusing on sidelying technique to bring optimal relief to your clients. This technique can be applied in a fully dressed sports setting, or in a more traditional spa setting. Both draping and sports setting will be addressed.
Sidelining is an effective way to reach the deeper structures of the hips that is both relieving for the client, as well as easy on the practitioner when in correct alignment while performing maneuvers. Proper practitioner and client positioning is practiced utilizing table adjustments, pillows, and other supports to best gain access and deliver incredible results.
This is not only a great prep class for structural alignment programs such as Zen BodyTherapy and Ralphing, but a useful day-to-day modality in facilitating structural relief within key areas of the body: hips, shoulders, and neck. This course utilizes triggerpoint therapy, pin and stretch techniques, and myofascial release in a specific order to gain most effective results. Participants will utilize the pain assessment of 1-10 throughout treatment, so they never go beyond their client’s ability to relax through the movements. Participants will learn the structures they will be addressing, then work as if in a sports setting with a partner to get into correct positions and postures, switching for the other partner to experience feeling and movement of structures halfway through. Class performed in a read, see, do format utilizing both lecture and hands-on experience.
All participants must have current licenses, and dress in comfortable clothing including sports bras for females, and lightweight t-shirts or tank tops for everyone, as well as wearing workable shorts such as running or yoga pants, staying clear of bulky waistbands. Please bring: two pillows, a set of sheets, and standard fragrance-free massage lotion.
