Sidelying Prenatal Circular Effleurage and Scooping Massage Instructor Demonstration

by Selena Belisle, Founder/Instructor, CE Institute LLC

Most massage therapists stand behind a side-lying client to administer massage.  Unfortunately this can hyperextend the wrists and leave them at awkward angles with poor body mechanics.

Effleurage and spreading any form of massage medium can be opened up and practiced from the front of the client in side-lying position.  

In this video instructor demonstration, we are massaging on pregnant client; however, this side-lying massage technique can be applied for anyone who is lying on their side, regardless of pregnancy:
