My name is Julianne and I am a new massage therapist just since 2020. I have only been working as a therapist for a few months, but already I am feeling pain in my hands. I have a little arthritis and maybe massage therapy was not such a good idea for me at age 50, but I needed a new life.

I am trying to learn Thai massage for a couple of reasons.

First, to save my hands because I think Thai massage is easier on the therapist than some other modalities.

Second, it's more rare here in Texas so I might stand out. The equipment is also relatively inexpensive compared to a table.

I am starting with the Sciatica course since I have so many clients with this issue and I will attempt to adapt the techniques to the table while I am new to this.

Hi Julianne, welcome to our community. Getting into Thai Massage to save your hands is a really good reason for doing so. Personally, I would have never lasted in this career for two decades if it would not have been for Thai Massage and its therapist-friendly techniques.

You can adapt many of the Thai techniques to the table, but on a floor mat you have additional options and better body mechanics. Something to keep in mind... Smile
