Nov. 5th, 7 CEU’s

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.

This class is intended for massage therapists (table or Thai) who would like to offer deep, permanent healing for chronic ailments. All practice will take place on the floor, and the approach is based on Thai bodywork theory, but these techniques can easily be applied to the table.

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.


Minimum 1-yr massage experience and an understanding of the regional anatomy.
