Are you having problems with your hands – or want to avoid reaching that stage?
Hands Free Massage is designed to help massage practitioners to save their fingers, thumbs and wrists (the most common areas of strain for practitioners) while applying firm pressure.
This 1 day workshop introduces you to the background and basic concepts of Hands Free Massage, and gives you the practical skills for using your soft forearm on the client’s back for broad sliding pressure strokes.
The strokes covered can easily be incorporated into your massage sessions. They include firm sweeping strokes and more detailed work on tension areas.
This day is the same as the first day of the Hands Free 2 day workshop.
There is an emphasis on:
- Learning to use your forearms skilfully and sensitively
- How to moderate the pressure applied
- How to support this with good body-use 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.
Prerequisite: To attend you must have a minimum nationally recognised level 3 body massage qualification such as Swedish Massage, Sports, Aromatherapy – also open to osteopaths, chiropractors etc
This is a level 3 advanced massage course.

“Hi Leora, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the hands free massage workshop yesterday, with you and Darien! I was really impressed with the quality of teaching (I really appreciated all the fine tuning) and in all honesty, after one day, I’ve fallen in love with hands free massage.
The techniques used and the wonderful care taken with regards to self care for the practitioner and focus on sensitivity giving the massage at the workshop yesterday blew me away. It’s the way I want to give massage and the type of practitioner I’d like to be. It’s made me feel incredibly excited about my future!
Thanks again for the amazing training, what a great day!”
