Hand Size Guide 

One Size does NOT fit all!

 

Smaller hands - after pulling the mitts onto the hand via the tab located at the front of your wrist joint will need to push the mitts together via the web space between the thumb joint and the main parts of the mitts. 

Medium sized hands - will just need to pull on the wrist tab to aid positioning.

Larger hands - will need to rotate their hands at 90 degree angles at the twist opening then rotate their hands into the mitt while puling in the wrist tab. They are very sturdy don't be frightened of breaking them, they will stretch. 

The mitts are one size for all. 

Use stroking, effleurage and large circular movement buy gliding the flat hand over the skin. The more nodules that come into contact to the skin the better the results. (Try not to use just your fingers and thumbs while massaging).

 

 

For Larger hands, rub oil on your hands before putting the Mitts on!
