Forearm Fusion was designed with the massage therapist in mind. Forearm fusion is a technique that allows massage therapists to effectively use their body by applying maximum pressure with minimal effort or strain.
Forearm fusion is a body saving technique that allows massage therapists to complete a full body massage without the use of their hands or thumbs. It will save the body and make massage easier.
Use of this technique helps to increase your career longevity as a massage therapist. Taking the strain away from your hands and wrists enables you to work longer, with less pain and less chance of injury. By using your forearms, you will protect the fragile joints in your hands and wrists. Your forearms are much stronger than your hands and your thumbs, and you will be able to work more effectively for longer periods of time.
When using your forearms to give a massage, you will need to get physically closer to your client. It is important to make sure that you do not bend at the waist when you do this. When using your forearms, you will need to lean onto the client. This means you need to make sure that you protect your own posture so that you do not strain or injure your back.
Using your forearms also helps to work the larger muscle groups of your clients. Your forearms are a larger tool to use than your hands, allowing you to cover more muscle areas and give a stronger and more effective massage.
Use of the forearms during massage also helps to give you more leverage. When using your forearms, you are using more of your body’s own weight to give a massage. Using your body weight helps to alleviate the muscular force you need to exert. This is especially helpful when giving deep-tissue massage, as you will be able to provide the massage longer, and more effectively, with less strain on your own body. You can give clients a deeper massage, and experience less fatigue while doing so.
