Massage therapy is a physically demanding profession. The careers of many massage therapists are interrupted or terminated because of self-injury, particularly to their wrists and hands. Self care is crucial in our industry, however, even with proper body mechanics, therapists can still suffer hand and shoulder injuries. When the open palm method and massage tools are used along with proper body mechanics, these types of injuries can be avoided.
This hands-on course is designed to help massage therapists achieve deeper penetrating pressure on their clients without exerting more force with their hands. After a variety of tools are introduced and proper handling is demonstrated, participants experiment with them. This allows them the opportunity to sample different tools before making the investment. The goal is for therapists to avoid muscular discomfort during their work and to find a tool or two to add to their massage offerings to further benefit their clients and enhance their businesses.
