Doublehanded picking up technique

This is performed by two hands working in a synchronised manner up and down, usually on the large muscle groups of the leg or on adipose tissue at the sides of the trunk and hips.

The hands are placed on the area with the web of each abducted thumb facing towards each other, with the thumbs and fingers placed around the part and elbows out (abducted).

One hand starts lifting and squeezing the tissues (as before). On release of the tissues by this hand, the other performs the same action slightly above, maintaining the rhythm.

In this way the hands move up over the area in synchronised chugging movements.
