Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during a Japanese Hand Massage?

A full consultation will be taken before each treatment. This ancient Japanese technique not only alleviates physical pain, but also helps balance your emotions to bring you to a relaxed, centered state. This is a very gentle Massage therapy that is especially beneficial to the elderly. Your Massage therapist may use the acupressure points on your hands to access a different stress source:

  • Thumb – Worry
  • Index finger – Fear
  • Middle finger – Anger
  • Ring finger – Sadness
  • Pinky finger – Self-esteem

Does a Japanese Hand Massage hurt?

As the Japanese Hand Massage will help relieve muscle aches, pains and tenderness, you may experience some discomfort during the Massage, as we are releasing some tension in the body, but it should never be painful. At any time, you ask your Fourward Health Massage therapist for light, medium or firm pressure.

What should I wear?

As Japanese Hand Massage targets your hands and arms, your Forward Health Massage therapist may ask you to roll up your sleeves, remove any additional layers on the top half of the body, and remove your jewelry.
