Thumbs hurt?? Don’t worry, in this workshop you won’t need them. Seriously, you never, ever need to use them in your work.
As tools, thumbs are just too small for the jobs to which we traditionally assign them. Taught by Kay Rynerson, LMT, RTT (Registered Thai Therapist), this hands-on class will give you the techniques you need to work on a client’s back, neck, and shoulders—all without your thumbs.
Drawn from many different traditions, this work is largely indebted to Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage, which employs your forearm. You will also use your fists, fingers, and elbows. You can work light, you can work deep, you can work in between, but in any case, you can have a long and lucrative career without ever injuring your thumbs.
Please bring the following to class:
- Portable massage table (1 per 2 students).
- Set of sheets.
- Face cradle cover.
- Massage emollient.
- Paper and pen for note taking.
- Please wear clothes you can move easily in, including clean socks (the venue is a shoe free space).
