This seminar provides an in-depth look at physical movements behind the bar and how they affect our bodies on a day-to-day basis. We will not only talk about bar related injuries but provide an in-depth video study on proper movement behind the bar. Also, we will provide a list of supplements and vitamins that counteract many bar "lifestyle" ailments such as fatigue, insomnia, liver toxicity, poor circulation, and dehydration. In addition we will have real time demonstrations and evaluations with Dr. Tarek Adra. The ultimate goal of this seminar is to extend the career bartender's life "Behind the Stick".
