Thai Massage Therapeutics; Feet & Calves

November 1 | 150
Chicago Oneness Center, Chicago, IL United States

Our feet, ankles, and lower legs tend to be our silent laborers. We have 66 joints in our feet, and congestion in the feet and lower legs affects movement throughout the entire body. Yet, very little time is given to massaging feet. No one complains about painful calves until you touch them. Considerable emotional residue hides in the calves. Learn effective ways to clear deep and chronic limitations in the lower legs & feet. Help people rediscover lightness in their movement.
Topics covered:
The body mechanics of massaging feet. Feet can be awkward to massage because of the way they move or don’t move.
Using your elbows, knees, feet, and props to maximize effect and minimize effort.

The use of sustained compressions & the breath.

Thai Massage Therapeutics; Hips & Low Back

November 3 | 150
Chicago Oneness Center, Chicago, IL United States

Our hips can take on a lot of strain as they support and carry us through this life. There are many misunderstood pains and restrictions that either stem from or end up in our hips. Liberating congestion in the low back and/or pelvic regions is a great way to assist clients in reclaiming their bodies. The hip area is a beautifully complex network of ligaments, tendons and muscles. Thus, therapeutic bodywork in this area can be specific and precise. We’ll spend the day exploring the intricacies of opening up the hips with lots of hands-on practice.
Topics covered:

Precise points and techniques to use for the hips, low back, and upper legs.
The use of long compressions and the breath.
Therapist’s body positioning. There are many ways to accomplish the same goal; we will help you find the most comfortable way that most suits your body. Comfort and ease are critical for maintaining the longevity of a bodyworker’s career.
Self-care techniques to inspire your clients to take care of their bodies.
