The secret to a great massage is sometimes found in the humblest of places!
Foot and hand work is something most massage therapists are weak in. For whatever reason, most schools gloss over this very important part to your massage. At our school, we teach that good foot and hand work can be the difference between a satisfied client and one that will go elsewhere. This class will help you hone your foot and hand work, giving you a new, fresh approach that will have your clients returning again and again for more. Our deep tissue approach includes the neuromuscular trigger point work that will help eradicate pain and tension as in addressing plantar fasciitis or arthritic hand complaints and combine the most powerful shiatsu points on the legs and arms, feet and hands. The acupuncture/acupressure points in Japan are known as tsubos. The specific tsubos called the Go, Gen, Sei points are one the secrets to an extraordinary session in Japanese shiatsu or Chinese Tui Na. This is not a reflexology class that requires a completely different serious course of study. The combination of trigger points and shiatsu makes it some of the most powerful foot and hand massage work you’ll ever experience.
You will dig this class and so will your hands and feet!
