No, it’s not jazz hands! Today’s exercise is a wrist and hand warmup for massage therapists:

 

Try this one before you perform a massage. The loose shaking action lubricates the joint surfaces of the wrist and carpals. 

Massage is a physical profession, and RMTs need to stay active to be at the top of their game. A good therapist will also be well-versed in exercises that will benefit their clients. Vicars students recieve training in remedial exercise, and our “remex” sessions incorporate exercises and stretches from many sports and athletic traditions. Practice along with us!

Each exercise is demonstrated by Denise Currie. In addition to being an RMT (and our Director!), Denise is a personal fitness trainer and highly regarded yoga practitioner who regularly trains other teachers.
