Stiff hands and wrists
In our current culture we overuse certain movement patterns in our hands and wrists. We spend a lot of time at keyboards, on handheld devices and using a mouse. This limited range of motion from typing, driving and computer work in our hands, arms and shoulder girdle leads to issues such as carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, and tennis elbow, muscle and joint pain.
Today I am going to show you how to do a delicious hand massage to stimulate the acupuncture and meridian points that run through your hands and the tips of your fingers. These acupuncture and meridian points related to all the various organs and systems of your body, so not only are you creating ease in your hands and wrists but you are also creating harmony and ease in your whole body.

Precaution: If you are pregnant it is better not to target specific areas as toxins can be released causing weakness for your fetus.
If you would like more support in creating balance for your hands and wrists I would highly recommend the following classes in our membership community:
Intro to Hand Connective Tissue Class
This class is particularly good for issues related to your hands and wrists such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis, arthritis, pain from working long hours at computers, cell phones, driving etc.
Do you have aches and pains? Are you looking for a simple way to look after your body? Working with your connective tissue will improve your efficiency and performance in your fitness routine, while enhancing your daily life by improving your digestion, sleeping, and reducing inflammation, accumulated stress and chronic pain symptoms.
Props Needed: SOFT SQUASH BALL
Please, please, please do not substitute other balls for this class. You could do damage to your connective tissue. Also, please don’t buy your balls at the dollar store. You are going to be rubbing them against your skin which is a huge organ that can absorb toxins. Splurge and go to target or walmart.
Hands and Wrists Class
This class is the antidote to 21st century living. With the continuous time spent at keyboards, typing on handheld devices, gripping your mouse and the steering wheel of your car your hands take a beating. This class will stretch out your hands and wrists and explore their mind/body connection. You’ll probably decide to make it a part of your daily practice!
