Massage Tools Practical Training
This course teaches you to massage with tools and parts of the body other than the hands. It extends the sensations, texture, and pressure of touch to your partner or client from the classic hands-on massage. A highly practical experience for therapists on how to massage without putting excess strain on wrists or inflamming thumbs from normal massage techniques. Tthe tools are usually easy to transport for mobile therapists, and easy to clean. For the client, massage tools offer deeper treatments, heat, self-care opportunities (i.e. the client may be able to use the tools themselves), and offers a variety that mixes up their treatments.
Learning to massage without using your hands comes from the experience and knowledge of a fully qualified massage and holistic therapist, Steve. You will learn effective and pleasurable massage techniques to suit both relaxing and deeper massages. You would benefit having Relaxing Full Body Massage Training beforehand, but it is not essential. Course lengths are flexible to allow for students' different experiences and goals. You take home a course booklet on Massage Tools, plus a Certificate of Completion of the No Hands Massage Course.
