GLU Handshake workshop

Earlier in September, Emily joined the Girls Like Us team in Brussels for the launch of issue #10 of their magazine, FUTURE, which features a photographic version of Hacking with Care’s hands massage manual, the Handshake. Emily facilitated a workshop for the occasion, where she shared tips, talked about ethical conduct in care, and showed a selection of simple and effective hands massage moves.  A formidable ice-breaker, a powerful portable massage, a connection you can’t really cheat, the Handshake proved again a great tool for making friends, fortifying ourselves, and building solidarities.

Below, Emily is showing the move  counting money on the phalanges , in which you want to contact the bone structure of the hand. There is something odd in the phalanges count… If you apply yourself patiently to it, you will find out what 🙂
