Hands Free Massage with Darien Pritchard


Hands–Free MassageForearm and Elbow Techniques to Save Your Hands
This course is designed to help massage practitioners to save their fingers, thumbs and/or wrists (the most common areas of strain for practitioners) while applying firm pressure. 

This Hands Free Massage workshop covers a range of forearm techniques and introduces some elbow techniques that can substitute for and extend ‘classic’ massage techniques. Unfortunately, these powerful tools have a poor reputation with some people because of their insensitive use, so the course focuses on learning to feel with them as part of learning to use them carefully and skilfully so as to avoid brutalising the client. It also covers:

•    How and where to best use them;  
•    How to moderate the pressure applied;  
•    How to support this with good bodyuse rather than working too hard with your arms and shoulders;   
•    How to blend these techniques smoothly into massage sessions.

The aim is to expand your repertoire and freshen your approach, to help you be more effective when applying pressure while saving your hands, thereby helping you to maintain your career.

Darien has been using his forearms and elbows for over two decades (without which he would have been unable to sustain his career). He was particularly inspired by receiving deep tissue and Hawaiian massage treatments, and adapted these massage ‘tools’ to deliver ‘Swedish Massage-style’ and deep tissue massage techniques. He began calling it Hands-Free Massage when he started teaching it as a separate course over a decade ago.

Suitable for therapists with a qualification in massage, Aromatherapy or Osteopathy, chiropractic etc
