Don't worry, it's a good addiction. Here's what I mean: I started out like every MT, sacrificing thumbs and fingers to the deep-pressure goddess. But as time went on, I learned that if I used a pressing massage tool, I could exert deep, precise pressure practically all day long and my hands wouldn't hurt. Fast-forward to today, 25-plus years into my massage career. Many of my clients still request deep pressure. And I have no problem delivering it because I use pressing tools. That said, as much as tools can save your hands, a poorly designed one can overload finger joints and/or cause you to overgrip. Here's a way to figure out which pressing tool is best for you.
