A Detailed Approach to Sidelying Techniques

Part 1—Shoulder | 1 CE hour 

Part 2—Back | 1 CE hour 

Part 3—Hip | 1 CE hour 

Featured during the 2023 ABMP CE Summit: Sidelying event, these new courses from Allison Denney of Rebel Massage demystify the sidelying position and give practitioners effective techniques they can easily incorporate into their next session. Learn how to simplify client positioning and draping while Allison demonstrates targeted stretches and techniques—including pin-and-stretch, active engagement, and eccentric contraction—for the shoulder, back, and hip. Allison’s humor, expertise, and unique teaching style will inspire you to break out of your comfort zone and tap into the benefits of working with clients in the sidelying position.

These courses are available in the ABMP Education Center to view and earn CE hours.

Massage School Programs at Risk Across the Country

The US Department of Education issued final rules on October 31 that will likely greatly impact clock-hour programs in states with minimum clock-hour requirements for licensure or certification, including massage therapy. The new rule is flawed and, if not changed, will cause devastating collateral damage to schools, instructors, students, and the public. Find out how you can advocate!
