ZZ.) Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Hands & Arms (Seattle October 30, 2019)


Product Description

Instructor: Brian Utting, LMT; NCBTMB #451040-09

Our arms and hands are tough, dexterous, and exquisitely sensitive. As massage therapists, they are perhaps our primary vehicle for sensation and communication, and we use them (and sometimes overuse them) intensively. Our clients' hands and arms often take a beating as well, especially with so much computer use in the workplace and at home. For all the work that they do, our hands and forearms seldom get the time or skilled attention that they deserve.

In this class we will focus on specific techniques for releasing the muscles and fascia of the hands, thumbs and forearms; increasing mobility in the corresponding joints; and 'deconstructing' forearm muscles that have become glued together. You will learn some simple but effective ways to make your arm massages more specific, potent, and satisfying--and receive some good (and much-needed) work yourself.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover and pillow or bolster; wear loose clothing.

What participants have said about this class:
  • "Great class! The techniques that were given were all useful and specific to healthy hands, wrists, and forearms. I would repeat this one." - Nan H.
  • "All my little finger joints feel so free, and like they are lined with satin." - Melissa D'H.
  • "This class has not only improved the work I offer my clients, but given me better hand mechanics and bodywork techniques to use on my own hands and forearms, relieving pain and prolonging my career." - Rebecca A.

Special Note: This class has replaced the class "Muscle-Specific Deep Tissue Techniques for the Iliopsoas, Diaphragm & QL" that was originally scheduled for October 30.
