Yes, perfectly normal not to hold a metal bar, depending on the type of electrolysis you're getting. My technician uses an Apilus Platinum (thermo) and I've never held a bar during any of our sessions. However, I do hold a metal rod for the ionophoresis she performs afterward. (She always wraps it first in a wet wipe, though I'm not sure why?)

The metal bar is held during thermolysis when the electrologist chooses to work in automatic mode, having nothing to do with galvanic or blend. If the electrologist wants you to make contact with the metal bar during thermolysis, it is being used as a sensor, not a ground.
