WHAT IS A HANDS FREE MASSAGE TREATMENT?

Hands Free Massage utilises the therapists' forearms and the strength of their entire body to deliver a deep, powerful, relaxing massage for the client.  Using the soft, inner part of the forearms enables the therapist to spread the pressure over a much wider area than is possible with traditional massage techniques.  This means that the massage works deeper without causing discomfort.  Muscle fibres can be worked smoothly and easily, helping to ease away any tension, adhesions and knots.  It delivers a treatment that will make your clients feel that their tensions have been 'ironed'.  Their muscles will feel less tense and muscular dysfunction to deliver a therapeutic, deep but relaxing massage.  This massage soothes sore muscles, increased circulation and aids a sense of deep relaxation.  Like other forms of massage the pace and pressure can be adapted to suit your client's needs.  

BENEFITS

Hands free massage can help relax or rejuvenate, release tense muscles, increase blood circulation and improve detoxification.  It can also be a benefit if your client is stressed, tense, have aches and pains, particularly in the lower and upper back.
