Body Mechanics and Massage Therapy

The way you use your body will influence your physical health. Whether you are sitting or standing; pushing or pulling; or lifting and holding something. For instance, just keeping a wallet in your back pocket can misalign your spine because of the way it changes your body mechanics when you sit.

Body positions are so important to your health. A perfect example is the strain that you put on your back, neck and shoulders when you look down when standing. The next time you are doing dishes, try to look straight ahead instead of down and see what a difference it makes. There will be less strain to your neck area.

Massage therapy can help relax muscles so that it will improve your body mechanics. Another nice benefit accompanying an education in massage therapy is learning about proper body mechanics and how to lessen or avoid physical stress and injury. Becoming aware of how you use and sometimes misuse your body can help you to stay healthier feel better between massage sessions.
