Does anyone include acupressure in their therapy? I'm mostly thinking about hand massage. Thanks

Hi Kymberly,
We have a warm wax machine (you can only use the wax once so it does become expensive) do the wax then we gently massage their hands with almond or lavender oil.
If they suffer from arthritis in their hands the warm wax is great, you can also use warm water with Epsom salts in it and lavender oil, soak for 10 minutes then dry and massage. We also do nail therapy as in painting their nails, the clients/family bring in their own nail polish. Lesley
