Qi Gong Approach to Better Body Mechanics
A crucial component to maintaining a long, healthy, pain-free career in the massage therapy field is the use of proper body mechanics. Developing the type of body awareness necessary to remain healthy and achieve longevity of practice requires you become mindful of your body’s movements, responses and sensations. This seminar will demonstrate how to integrate basic qi gong principles to achieve just that. Various qi gong exercises will be presented and their applications demonstrated. Students will learn how to stay rooted and centered throughout their massage treatments, allowing them to sense the difference between ease and effort. They will learn how to apply greater force with less effort, gain more efficiency of movement, and reduce the risk of injury and fatigue.
At the start of class the instructor will evaluate each participant’s body mechanics. Throughout the day, they will be given specific recommendations for improvement. Ample hands-on practice time will be allowed in order to integrate new postural awareness.
If you want to learn how to work smarter, not harder, this workshop is for you!
