True, massaging your hands can release tension throughout the rest of your body.
As you can imagine there are many health benefits to keeping your mind sharp and body relaxed. Not everyone has time or money to get a full Reflexology session, and fortunately you no longer have to. According to many massage associations, a hand massage can not only prevent you from suffering painful hand conditions but relieve you of full body aches and pains.
Numbers are spiking when it comes to those affected by Raynaud’s phenomenon, a condition that causes sharp tension in all parts of your hand, or Arthritis, an inflammation in your joints. Instead, concentrating on loosening tight muscles and increasing your mobility will cut your risk of suffering from one of these conditions.
Your hand contains reflexology points that can significantly affect other parts of your body, from your neck to your nose. Here are some moves to being the massaging process:
- Stretch your fingers and palm out, making sure the entire hand is loose.
- Gently rub from the base of each finger to the tip.
- Squeeze the skin between your thumb and index finger to loosen up any tightness.
- Slide your thumb from your palm to the base of each finger.
