My family owns a massage therapy franchise as well as a massage therapy school. I am very protective of the massage therapists that work for us. This includes injury prevention.
Had a client last week insist on a 90 min. session with the massage therapist only using hands and thumbs. We teach that excessive use of the hands is to be avoided and the thumbs should rarely be used.
I called the client and told them that their request has the potential to harm the massage therapist and they said that that is what they want as well as deep pressure so I told them we would not book them for a session. TADA!
