After years of giving and receiving massage I discovered that the most effective way to manipulate soft tissue is with the exclusive use of the hands, not elbows and forearms. As a result, the Iron Palm Massage technique is highly detailed and specific, where an elbow simply is not. The deep pressure achieved can be delivered in a gentle way because the pads of the fingers act as a buffer vs. the rigidity of a boney elbow. Always working within the capacity and receptivity of the client, most experience a degree of relief in one session. It is a passion and privilege being a part of the wellness journey!
