Tool Massage at Shadonai Beauty School
What is Tool Massage?
Both manual and electric massage tools enable therapists to conserve energy and reduce strain on the hands, wrists and fingers while still applying deep, consistent pressure.
Simple, but practical manual massage tools include balls, rollers, thumb tools, handheld massage tools, hot stone massage tools, head and neck massage tinglers and massaging sticks. Clients and massage therapists both benefit when the massage tools are used in combination with techniques.
