best position for sleep?
« on: July 27, 2008, 05:59:26 PM »
Hello there, I've just had my 1st session with Franco here in Perth & really enjoyed it! My right shoulder is higher than the left due to lugging around a backpack at Uni, but already it's looking more balanced.

We discussed sleep, as it seems my position has resulted in my right shoulder also being rotated forward a bit. What's the best sleeping position? Is there one?

I read somewhere we're better off on our right side, so the heart has less weight to support at night. How does this fit in with the SLM theory & practice?

Thanks in advance :)

Love,

  Ed

Hi Ed, glad you enjoyed the treatment. Sleeping on your back is best if you can do that but on the side is next best and probably switch during the night to share the load. I am sure you will sleep well after your massage so the back might be a good one to try.

Regards
Steve

Unf, when dozing off it's almost impossible to sleep on my back. I usually switch from side to side during the night, and when I change position I'm not exactly mentally alert :)

Oh, well, never mind. I had a 2nd massage yesterday & my body was MUCH better at handling the poking & prodding! I'll do another few weekly then back off to less frequently.

Weekly would be ideal, but not quite yet :)

Thanks for your reply.

Love,

  Ed
