I have an IC who is double jointed. She gives a great deep massage and gets so many compliments from clients. I am happy to have her on my team. I later realized she was double jointed and began noticing when she gives me massages that sometimes instead of pressure being applied with thumb pads, it is coming from the joint below it. Then we talked about it and she says sometimes when she is using the tip of her thumb, she really has to brace it so it doesn't flex backward. Then I asked her if her thumb muscles were really strong because I could see how they would work harder to flex from the hyper extended state, her thumb muscles are huge! Is anyone else here double jointed and finds that it helps or causes trouble with giving massage?
