FQA – Do you hands get tired after massage?
Massage is classified as one of the most phyically taxing occupations available. Obviously a massage therapist uses their hands alot during a relaxing massage. It only takes a massage therapist a few months working in the field to develop strength in the hands and forearms. The increase in muscle size and strength means that hands can work harder for longer and no get as sore or fatigued. Massage techinque not only relies on hand strength, but also good posture, body weight leverage, forearms and elbows. A combination of all the different techniques helps therapist avoid over using their hands or putting too much pressure on their hands.
In short if a massage therapists is practising good technique, no they will not have sore hands.
