This tool can save the hands and thumbs of those who use deep soft tissue or joint work in treatment. It is very powerful and should be used only by those who are adequately trained. When The Talea’™ is used correctly, it is basically an extension of the work that the body worker is already doing. Educational videos will also be available in the future, for those who would like to learn how to use it to its greatest potential, for soft tissue, or joint mobilization. There are even some hands-free techniques that Rebecca teaches.
