Body Mechanics and Core Stabilization are essential for longevity in the profession. At ASIS we do our best to help you achieve a sense of greater health and strength by emphasizing good habits. Considerations for positioning and orienting parts of our body are presented with the intention to point each therapist in the direction of finding his or her own way to dance.
Balancing to promote fluidity, using our body weight to allow for efficient use of energy, and becoming aware of our whole body’s participation in offering massage will enable us to work/ dance with minimal strain and sweat.
In the practice of moving our bodies from our center, or pelvis, shifting our weight into our legs, and softening and sinking our weight into the client, we may discover, as with any new physical activity that areas of our bodies begin to call for our attention in the form of stronger sensation or discomfort. If at any point along the way you feel pain or sensation that does not feel okay, we recommend that you explore alternatives and seek assistance/ guidance from any instructor at our massage school.
At ASIS Massage, we are here to support your learning.
