Good body mechanics are foundational to a long, productive career in massage therapy, yet many therapists struggle with maintaining proper form throughout their workday.

This class focuses on using the body’s gravitational center, one of the key components of proper body mechanics, which is integral for creating the greatest ease and effectiveness when delivering massage techniques. We will compare and contrast appropriate and inappropriate body mechanics applications and practice movements to increase your awareness and use of center while providing massage. You will also learn how to move efficiently around a massage table, recognize problematic body mechanics patterns, and self-correct to make your work less physically challenging, thus saving your body from undue strain and effort. Whether you are a new or veteran therapist, this course will serve your body well by getting back to center.
