Ergonomics: Lifts, Twists & Suspensions in Thai Massage - a 1-day workshop. In many Thai massage courses, little emphasis is given to twisting and suspension techniques, and how to execute them safely and efficiently. In this fun workshop, we learn and practice 20 specialized techniques.

Some workshops present techniques for lifting and suspending clients that simply don’t work when one person is larger, heavier, or taller than the other. It's important to know why and when to use these techniques, and how to avoid hurting yourself or the client. The secrets lie in good ergonomics and correct breathing patterns.
This workshop takes a new look at when, why and how we should twist, suspend and lift a client in Thai massage and movement therapy. There are little-known ways to reduce a client's stress and open the body with gentle balancing and rocking suspensions. These techniques have less to do with physical strength, and they depend more on proper body mechanics, breath, and physics. We will learn them, and we'll also review and refine other traditional Thai massage techniques for twisting and gently suspending clients.
We work in all four body positions; supine, prone, seated and side, and special attention is given to the motivation behind each technique – when to use them, and when to NOT use them.
If you like the idea of stretching, balancing and suspension poses, but you're not always comfortable when you try them, then this workshop is for you.
