About Jim Funk, Creator of Forearm Fusion

Designed by 2019 World Massage Hall of Fame inductee Jim Funk, LMT, Forearm Fusion will save your body and make massage easy!

Jim has been a massage therapist for more than 26 years and has been teaching massage techniques for 20 years. Jim noticed that some of his students were ending their massage careers, not because they wanted to, but because they felt their bodies could no longer preform a quality massage. Jim realized that many of these therapists were leaving the profession because they had not utilized body saving techniques. He saw many therapists using only their hands and fingers and not using their forearms. With this in mind, Jim developed Forearm Fusion. This method uses the hand, forearm, and elbow to provide a therapeutic massage. Proper body mechanics are stressed in this class.

What Our Students Say

This technique has changed the way I work and my clients are getting better results because of it! If you’re debating taking this cue course, I’d say take it asap! The course is thorough and well-taught. This is not just about techniques using your forearms, it’s an intensive body mechanics self-check too! If you need good, effective massage work done, hunt down a forearm fusion-certified therapist.

Joy Brusetti

Forearm Fusion is an amazing class! It offers a lot to FA techniques, which help the massage therapist with effective deeper pressure and more uniform distribution over the tissue area you are focused on.
