This 3-day module brings in a whole new aspect of working with the client in a different body-position: SIDE-LYING.

This module introduces a new aspect of client body positioning that allows pregnant women, heavy clients or those with painful low-back issues a much more comfortable way of experiencing the therapeutic effects of a session.

In addition to a full sequence of treatment moves with the client lying on their side, you also learn an expanded series of supplemental techniques for the seated position.

Also part of the Certification Training program, this class contains alternative methods for practitioners providing acupressure, including the use of feet, knees and elbows, as well as the hands (palms and thumbs).

As usual, the emphasis will be on enhancing practical application and continuing to build a practice that is therapeutically healing for the client, as well as physically safe and sustainable for the practitioner.

You Will Learn:

  • How to perform a full-body treatment session with the client lying mainly on their side and in the seated position.
  • New assisted stretches with meridian and pressure point therapy, as well as Eight Limbs style techniques where the therapist uses the feet, knees and elbows to save the palms and thumbs.
  • How to work in positions and in a style that is especially good for pregnant women and others who have difficulty lying on their backs.
