Dynamic Bodyuse for Effective, Strain-Free Massage
How to apply pressure without straining your body or damaging your hands is one of the greatest challenges involved in massage. The most significant cause of early retirement from the massage profession is the cumulative strains on the body developed in the course of performing massages. The growth of the profession in recent years has been accompanied by an increase in the number of work induced problems. Practitioners can strain their hands, particularly their thumbs, fingers and wrists, and also their shoulders and backs. This book highlights aspects of massage that can lead to these problems and offers guidance for avoiding these. The focus is on how to use your body safely and effectively in massage sessions. This includes involving your whole body to generate the power and movement that supports your working hands, saving your hands by using them skilfully and conserving them by using other body areas such as your forearms and elbows whenever possible. This book is essential reading for anyone involved in massage, whether you are a student, a professional massage practitioner or teacher, sports massage therapist or aromatherapist.
