Tumwater – Embodied Body Mechanics

September 8 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

4 hrs CE 
This class is designed to invite the students to examine their body mechanics, notice habitual patterns, and offer alternatives to increase the longevity of their career. According to 2006 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shared by Mohr, more than half of injuries suffered by massage therapists were sprains/strains, and more than half of injury sources were from worker motion/position. Additionally, the burnout rate of massage therapists is extremely high. Dive into a self reflection on your current body mechanics. Discover how you can create practices that serve your body. Learn how giving a massage can feel just as good as receiving a massage.

About the Instructor:

Graciela Lopez (MT#8653, NCBTMB AP # 1000166) LMT, NTS 

Graciela has been practicing Thai massage for just over 10 years. Graciela studied in Laos, Costa Rica, Mexico and New Mexico with teachers in the lineage of Asokananda whose teachings trace back to Jivaka Khumar Baccha, revered as the father of medicine in Thailand and was said to be the doctor of the Buddha. Graciela is also a cultural worker and facilitates a ethics of diversity and anti-oppression in bodywork classes on the topics of facing our prejudices to become more present and mindful practitioners addressing the needs of a diverse array of clients including those of the trans, Black, Indigenous and POC communities, people with bodies of size and people with disabilities. Graciela is grateful to be providing a space for folks to receive deep healing and has a long-term dream of co-creating a healing center to support people traditionally left out of healing spaces due to a blend of racial & socio-economic factors.  

My intention in each class is that the teachings ripple out and benefits all beings everywhere without one exception.”
