How to Improve Your Body Mechanics

Massage therapy is a demanding profession with a wide variety of physical risk factors, including repetition, force, awkward postures and mechanical stress, to name a few. In combination, some of these risk factors become even more problematic. For example, force and posture.

Good body mechanics can help prevent injury and add years to your massage therapy career. Watch past AMTA National Convention speaker Ed Mohr give a short demonstration on how and why proper body mechanics are important for massage therapists.
