Course Description:

If you’re experiencing pain during massage, that means it is time to reassess your body mechanics. However, the challenge lies in the fact that if your current strategies don’t consider your unique body type, massage style, or any existing pain conditions or injuries, relief may remain elusive. The solution lies in this comprehensive class, designed to tailor body mechanics to your specific needs. You’ll discover how to leverage your body weight for effective pressure, utilize the table for back support, maintain an upright posture to avoid strain, employ alternative body parts to alleviate hand fatigue, seamlessly transition between techniques, and substitute pressing for squeezing methods. While body mechanics isn’t complex, it certainly isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach.

Participants are asked to bring: Set of linens, and preferred massage lotion.
