In this class, we will explore body mechanics through a biomechanical lens. We will utilize the body’s architecture and biomechanical mechanisms to focus energy and movement in order to work more efficiently and effectively to reduce stress on the joints and neuro-myofascial systems of the body in order to develop our body mechanics for a pain-free, long-lasting career in massage therapy.

We will combine Eastern practices in Tai Qi and Western biomedical science to explore and demonstrate a way of working to increase power and reduce stress and strain on joints and muscles of the shoulder girdle and focus on harnessing the power of the pelvis. We use body mechanics to differentiate between power and strength and demonstrate working with multiple body parts like fists, forearms, elbows, and knees to provide alternatives for over-used hands and thumbs.

Pain is one of our greatest teachers. It tells us that something is wrong and suggests the need to explore a new way of working. In addition to exploring sustainable body mechanics, we will demonstrate stretching and strengthening techniques that are fundamental tools for maintaining a healthy body, mind, and spirit for a long healthy career in massage.
