First things first – you will need two Kneaders! We keep the cost for the Kneaders as low as we can go, which is €12.50 per Kneader (2 for €25) when you order directly from us. Our Kneader price does not include P&P, which will be calculated for you when you purchase the tools from our website shop. From a posting perspective, it’s much better value to buy 2 Kneaders together!
Second, you will need a massage chair. We recommend that you go for the best you can afford because we know, from experience, that onsite massage chairs need to be sturdy, well-made, versatile and light. However, there are all sorts of chair options out there and a lot of them can be purchased second-hand to save on costs, so it’s definitely worth shopping around. If you’re in any doubt, you can ask questions on our course participants Facebook page for Una and/or other course members to discuss. Una is not sponsored by anybody, so she’ll just give you her honest opinion as an experienced massage therapist on any product query or discussion.
Third, you will also need antiseptic wipes and any PPE gear that government and/or your insurer guidelines advise for both yourself and your models/clients.
Fourth, you’ll need a massage model to practice all the Kneader moves in this routine on. That means free massage for your friends and family, which should make you very popular indeed! This routine, like all Kneader massage, is designed for adults only so we don’t recommend you practise on children (including teenagers), nor should you massage any individual who presents with any massage contraindications, which you can find on our massage infor page here. As a massage professional, you should let your insurers know that you will be massaging with the Kneader/learning a new routine, so that you will be covered for all eventualities.
