Soft Tissue Issues

From the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork:

Their Question:

What soft tissue issue do you experience (within yourself) as a massage therapist?

Our Answer:

Proper body mechanics is key to minimizing and preventing these issues. Working in bilateral symmetry (being as comfortable and capable working with your left side as your right) is also really important to increase your endurance & forestall uneven muscle development (which will eventually create uneven structural issues in the body). Having multiple tools you are comfortable using (such as elbows, forearms, knuckles, etc) also assuages the potential for exerting chronic stress on particular joints. Personally, I find that doing massage has the potential to exacerbate any pre-existing mis-alignments in my own body if I am not careful with my body mechanics and symmetry of movement. For this, I find that a daily yoga routine is supremely valuable for realigning my own body to keep it strong and healthy enough to help others.
