Instructor: Brian Utting, LMT July 1, 2018
 5 CE hours $125 by June 16, after $150  


Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for Side-Lying Paraspinals and Shoulders

Besides being deeply comforting and relaxing, skilled side-lying work gives you excellent access to the structures of the shoulder. Our shoulders are meant to float freely on our ribcages, held in suspension by 16 muscles, but very often they are restricted, stuck down and in pain.

You will learn to effectively liberate any glued-down scapular structures and give your clients a feeling of ease and freedom in their back and shoulders. You will also learn some focused, muscle-specific work to release bound up transversospinalis and erector spinae muscles that are fundamentally important to our posture, movement, and well-being.

Almost all of our clients can benefit from skilled side-lying work in this area and it feels great. The class will focus on straightforward, muscle-specific techniques which can be applied in practice. 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.

Brian Utting LMT, founded the Brian Utting School of Massage on Seattle in 1982; his 1000-hour professional licensing program was considered one of the best in the USA. Brian has been teaching internationally since 1990. He designs his classes so that the students truly "get" the material and can immediately apply it in practice, rather than just be exposed to it. He teaches with a rare blend of knowledge, passion, anatomical precision, humor, common sense, and depth. He was awarded the AMTA's Robert N. Calvert Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2009 and was inducted into the Massage Therapy Hall of Fame in 2014.
