    The Solution Is the Sides: 
 Approaching the Body 
 from All Angles
 Part I - Upper Body


Presented by:  David M. Lobenstine, LMT

Your client’s body is stuck in its usual spots. 
 No surprise. 
 But is your work stuck in a rut, too?


Do you need to add a new dimension 
 to your sessions? 
Then come explore the body in a new way – 
 from new angles!

In this two-part workshop, we will look first at the upper body, and then the lower body, and in the process we will learn new ways to get out of the rut that we as therapists can all too easily get stuck in. Our focus here will be to tackle those familiar (but sometimes forgotten) muscles, and those all-too-familiar client complaints, but from unusual angles, and using unusual techniques.

Throughout the workshop, we explore our own body mechanics, and experiment with ways of working that are more efficient.  As we try new things we realize which of our habits have become ossified – we realize the ways that we are stuck in a rut.  By doing so, we simultaneously expand our technique toolbox to address client complaints in new and satisfying ways.

Course Objectives:

Part I: The Upper Body from All Angles

  • Provide a new means to visualize the upper body, and to reconceive their clients’ common patterns of tightness and tension.

  • Learn and apply specific techniques to engage those patterns from new angles.

  • Add simple tools to enhance awareness of their body mechanics, thus rejuvenating their own practice while enhancing their clients’ satisfaction.

This is Part 1 of a 2-part series. 
Each workshop can be taken individually.
