Every massage therapist knows that massage can be hard on your hands. We all had the experience that a large, heavy, stiff client requests some serious therapeutic work.
In some cases it can leave us wondering how we can handle this person’s request without stressing our hands too much. Small therapists might even have to avoid or decline such work.
This is where Thai Massage therapy can be ideal. It is a wonderful modality for deep, intense and highly effective therapy work.
One of it’s greatest advantages is that therapists can use many body parts like knees, elbows and feet to relieve stress on the hands and to increase their power. However on top of these advantages, there is another useful option.
In this 6th episode of the Thai Massage Tips And Tricks series you will find out about one massage tool which is practically never used in Thai Massage. However I have used it very successfully on some of my larger clients.
It adds some substantial benefits to your work, it is good for the client and good for the therapist. While it does not replace your hands, it can be a valuable supplement to your Thai Massage work.
