L.) Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Back (Seattle January 10, 2018)


Product Description

Instructor: Brian Utting, LMT; NCBTMB #451040-09

We will focus on some precise, muscle-specific Deep Tissue techniques for the back that are probably different from, but complementary to what you learned in massage school and elsewhere.  These are straightforward, muscle-specific techniques that will improve the precision and effectiveness of your back massage, and they can be immediately applied in practice. The emphasis of techniques will be on releasing and unbinding the erector spinae, transversospinalis group, lumbodorsal fascia, quadratus lumborum (QL) and serratus posterior inferior from the prone position. You will also learn some powerful seated Deep Tissue techniques to release the fascia of the trapezius, rhomboids, and levator scapulae.

Students who have taken this class have reported that it helped to increase their precision, palpatory sensitivity, and effectiveness with their back massages, and that they were able to integrate the techniques into their practices right away. Body mechanics will also be a focus of this class, as well as proper use of fingers and elbows to save wear and tear on joints.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover, pillow, 2 wash cloths; wear loose clothing. Women should bring a bikini top or loose bra for several techniques that will be done while seated.
