Therapist Thursdays - Do your hands ever get tired?

Therapist Thursdays - Do your hands ever get tired?

Katey Kinghorn

Many times, we've heard clients ask their therapists if their hands ever get tired. Oftentimes, massage therapists generally see up to 4 or 5 clients a day here at our studio. So, this weeks Therapist Thursday question asks just that... "do your hands ever get tired?"

Hannah M: My hands have never bothered me as a therapist. I am however going into my 3rd trimester of pregnancy and noticing my hands are beginning to swell. Through proper massage care, rest and stretching, I plan to keep my hands strong and healthy.

Danny P: Yes, sometimes my hands get fatigued, but I have a regimen of stretches and strength exercises that help to promote strength, endurance and flexibility.

Ana G: My hands don't get as tired as much as one might think. During my treatments I use alot of my forearms and elbows to give my hands a rest. That avoids my hands from getting tired. Also with every stroke and movement I make sure it comes from using my whole body. It's kind of like when someone says "put your back in to it." After a treatment I make sure to stretch out my hands as well as the rest of my body and keep hydrated. Self care is essential to a therapist in order to continue to treat and heal others.
