DEEP TISSUE TECHNIQUES OF THE LOW BACK AND PELVIC GIRDLE:
DIMENSIONAL MASSAGE THERAPY

This workshop will use dimensional massage therapy to explore, evaluate, and treat a variety of common difficult hip joint and pelvic girdle conditions. Nancy will lecture on the skeletal and neurological anatomy of the hip joint and the pelvic girdle, and specific etiologies, signs, symptoms that are related to the pathologies of this area. She will provide a review of the muscular anatomy of the hip joint and the pelvic girdle, trigger points, and referred pain patterns. The relationship of the hip and pelvic girdle to the lower back will be explored along with potential gait issues. Nancy will demonstrate techniques used in Dimensional Massage (techniques using deep tissue strokes and methods designed to balance joints by working on all the muscles that produce, assist in, or oppose the actions of, or stabilize, the joint.) Careful attention will be given to the execution of these techniques, specific muscles and their idiosyncrasies, and the individual structure of the receiving person on the table.

Nancy W. Dail, BA, LMT, NCTMB
Nancy W. Dail has been a professional massage therapist since 1974. She is the founder and director of the COMTA accredited program at the Downeast School of Massage in Waldoboro, Maine (USA) (1980). A leader in her field, Nancy presents workshops internationally, is certified in Orthopedic and Sports Massage, and has developed the working philosophy of Dimensional Massage as lead author in Kinesiology for Manual Therapies published by McGraw-Hill. Her BA in Health, Arts, and Science from Goddard College helps her balance her administrative duties as Director with teaching Dimensional Massage, Advanced Skills, Kinesiology and related subjects at DSM.

Participants will work in small groups to explore variety of difficult client-therapist conversations, all based on real-life situations provided by past participants. Participants will develop the skills to make responsible, professional, client-centered choices with their work-even when those clients may have diseases or conditions that make many types of massage impractical.
