Since version 5.5 it is possible to setup multiple placeholders in your page templates. Simply follow the two steps below:

1. On the parent page template (i.e. Master template) add a "Page placeholder" web part

2. Add the following code in the child page template (i.e. Default template). Make sure the PagePlaceholderID matches with the Web part control ID of the Page placeholder from step 1.
<cms:CMSContent runat="server" id="cntContent" PagePlaceholderID="plcContent">
<cc1:CMSWebPartZone ID="zoneContent" runat="server" />
</cms:CMSContent>
