Massage, massage therapy, day spa, hand massageOur hands are something we take for granted every day.  I mean think about it, almost everything we do involves our hands in some way, shape or form. So all the more reason we need to take care of them because we need them. Have you ever had a hand massage? Hand massage therapy has been around for centuries as an important part of traditional therapeutic sciences.

 

The hands contain 27 bones connected to many joints.  When joints grow tired and stiff, they cause pain. Therapeutic hand massage techniques can be effective in soothing pain and increasing your range of motion. Massage gets oxygen-rich blood flowing into areas that have become stiff and sore. Hand massages not only benefit muscles, but also include the tendons, joints, ligaments and connective tissues in your hands. 

 

With so many people addicted to their technology devices, carpal tunnel syndrome has become a big problem for them. If you are suffering from this chronic condition or another hand injury like a sprain or broken bone, hand massage techniques can help alleviate that pain. Besides the other pain meds you might be taking, massage also provides another key healing tool.

 

Benefits of Hand Massage

So you don’t have to have an injury or aches and sprains to visit the day spa to experience the benefits of a hand massage.  A hand massage can be a very nice simple and quick way to relax and unwind.  Relax and let your massage technician try some new lotions while she limbers up your fingers and pulls and stretches your joints loosening up the tension in your hands. Hand massages are a great quickie massage to have on a lunch hour to relax and clear your mind too.
