Massage, while lying on the side is a very comfortable position for people, especially pregnant women and those who cannot lie at ease on their stomach or back for a longer period of time. Lying on the side opens up many more possibilities of movement, while at the same time, allowing easier access to the front and back of the body. In this position, it is easy to integrate techniques that are already known with new elements, creating a flowing massage that touches the client, not only physically, but deep within.
In the workshop participants will be shown how to smoothly, yet efficiently, use larger “tools”, such as the arms, will be explored. Breathing exercises and effortless stretching will also be demonstrated and practiced.
On this workshop the main focus will be on massaging the legs and back and creating movements, rotations and gentle stretches of the hip.
On this workshop the focus will be on massaging the arms and torso, as well as, creating movements, rotations and gentle stretches of the shoulders and arms. Information about how to massage pregnant women will be shared.
