Hacking

This manipulation uses the ulnar border of the hand and the little finger, ring and middle fingers to strike the tissues in a light, springy, brisk manner. The forearm must alternately pronate and supinate to allow the fingers to strike the part. The hands strike alternately.

It is important to avoid flexion and extension of the elbow joint as the resulting 'chopping' action is too heavy and powerful. This is a difficult manipulation to master and much practice is needed to perfect it. It can be practised initially on a pillow and the technique perfected before performing on a client. There are certain procedures to practise that will lead to correct and skilful technique.
