Is lying face down on the massage table causing you nasal stuffiness? Can't lie on your stomach because of a recent abdominal procedure? Large or swollen breasts causing discomfort in a face down position? Feeling like the massage doesn't reach that hard to get muscle in your neck, shoulder, back or hip? There is another way!
Your massage can be performed while you lay on your side on a specially-designed set of pillows called bolsters. Although this is typically used for prenatal massage, it has lots of applications for your comfort. Many people report feeling more comfortable and relaxed in the fetal position that the bolstering system creates. This position also allows me to get access to different angles of troublesome, chronic muscle patterns.
So next time you have a massage, consider this option. There isn't any extra cost for this type of positioning. Its just important that you are comfortable.
