Anatomy for Bodyworkers – Upper Body

Improve your massage skills by developing a sense of the muscle layers in your clients body. Join us for a fun experiential anatomy class designed for the massage therapist. Have fun making muscles out of clay and layering them on a skeleton model. We will start with the deepest muscles and work our way to the surface, taking time to palpate the muscles on each other, and to explore stretches and bodywork techniques for each muscle.

In the upper body class we will be focusing on muscles of the back, neck, face, shoulders, arm, forearm and hand. We will look at thoracic outlet syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, and ways of working on the muscles and structures that can cause nerve impingement.


Anatomy for Bodyworkers – Lower Body

Improve your massage skills by developing a sense of the muscle layers in your clients body. Join us for a fun experiential anatomy class designed for the massage therapist. Have fun making muscles out of clay and layering them on a skeleton model. We will start with the deepest muscles and work our way to the surface, taking time to palpate the muscles on each other, and to explore stretches and bodywork techniques for each muscle.

In the lower body class we will be focusing on muscles of the abdominal wall, hip, thigh, calf and foot. We will look at sciatic pain, psoas tightness, IT band tightness, and other problems of the lower extremity, exploring ways of working with these problems with an understanding of the relevant anatomy.

Some clients may not be able to lie on their back or stomach, so it is important to be able to massage them in a position in which they are comfortable. Many clients are more comfortable lying on their side. They enjoy the stretches and feeling of elongation that they experience with this work. Your client's body is not a pancake to be flipped over in the middle of a massage, but rather is a three dimensional structure, to be worked with from different perspectives.

Sidelying work can integrate well into a relaxation massage. You can start with a client lying prone, then on one side, then on the other side, and then finish with them supine. Clients that I have done this with have enjoyed it and have asked for the sidelying work in future sessions.

Some areas such as the shoulders, low back and hips can be accessed best when the client is lying on their side. Learn effective techniques for these areas as well as a flowing full body massage that can be done in the sidelying position.  Proper draping and use of bolsters will be shown.


Workshop participants will get a prototype DVD and workbook to help with learning and to remember and review the techniques afterward.

Modalities covered will include PNF Stretching, Reciprocal Inhibition, Cross Fiber, Strain Counterstrain and Trigger Point Therapy, Cryotherapy, Pre and Post-event Massage, and positional release techniques.
