Massage therapists use their hands - a LOT. As such, your hands are your most valuable tools when working as a licensed massage practitioner.
In this training video, we will show a neuromuscular technique, that is also used to release fascial adhesions as part of myofascial release. It is also an active release technique also known as "ART". There is active movement on the behalf of the client, and the practitioner will then apply pressure and movement with their own fist to manipulate the underlying soft tissue.
At CE Institute LLC, we also call this technique strumping. We are STRipping soft tissues while a joint is PUMPING, moving back and forth through its normal range of motion.
This technique can be provided to both forearm flexors and extensors. It is an invaluable tool and technique for massage therapists to apply to themselves as part of self-care, and it is also valuable therapy for clients who excessively use their hands as well, whether through sports competition, work, daily activities and more!
