About the Class:
Are you tired at the end of a day of giving massage? Do you have pain or discomfort in your hands, thumbs, arms, neck and/or back? Do you want to have a long, pain-free career?
hen you need to improve the way you use your body and create new habits for success and long career. The secret is to learn how to use an integrated body exerting the least amount of effort to get the most results.
We all do it- learn great skills and develop lasting habits. Unfortunately, some of these habits make your back, thumbs, forearms or overall body hurt after treating your clients. If this is true for you, it is time to get a TouchAbilities Body Mechanics tune-up to help you erase your pain! This course will support you to review your positioning, correct bad habits and learn effective self-care techniques.
No matter what modalities you blend and weave into your practice, how you manage your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self will be reflected in the quality of your touch, your overall health and the number of years you successfully work in the field.
A must-do course for any bodyworker who wants to have a lifelong and injury-free career.
