Hand Massage Video
Our Hand Massage video sections shows important massage technique for many of us. Many people rely not just in their professional career on the proper function of their hands. If you are an artist, a secretary, a cab driver, a pro gamer, a golfer or a massage therapist, your hands are your #1 tool. So take good care of it.
Many work situations force us to repetitive use of our hands and even though for example writing only places a very small load on our hand and finger muscles, doing movements over and over again can be very stressful.
The main thing to prevent problems in your hands and wrist is to avoid repetitive use, take frequent breaks and stretch your wrist and fingers. Hand massage applied by your or somebody else are simple and can give instant relief.
If that is not enough then I would add some exercises or try to do things in a different way. I learned to use my forearms a lot for massage, because my wrists started to hurt. This not only gave me a new dimension in my skill, but also a break for my hands.
Chronic overuse of hands and fingers can lead to repetitive strain injuries (RSI) like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. See here what Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) actually is and what you can do about it.
The motto is: Do something before it hurts. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Hand massages are my personal favorite. If I can only choose one area to massage, it would be definitely the hands, wrists and forearms. It doesn't even have to be some specific style, if somebody just presses randomly around, it already gives me great relief.

Massage therapist have also detected reflex zones on the hands, areas that are connected to distant organs and can be stimulated or sedated in order to manipulate those organs. It is based on the same principle as foot reflexology, but has never been as popular.
