Today's technology is proving to be a new source of pain and discomfort in our hands... texting on cell phones, extended video game play, typing on our computer keyboard... all are contributing to the popularity of hand therapy to combat the increased strain on our hands.
If you use your hands a lot during any given day - and most of us do in our workplace - you probably experience the tension and pain associated with your work. If you spend a majority of your day typing - for example - a hand rub can relieve the effects brought on by excessive use of a computer keyboard. In just 5 - 10 minutes, one can experience much-needed relief; this benefit only compounds the popularity of hand massage therapy among people of all ages.
If you're familiar with reflexology, you know that a hand rub can bring relief to the stress and tension found in various other parts of the body. As stated earlier, it has been found that different parts of the hand have "access" to other - often distant - parts of our body. So during a hand rub, the area receiving the pressure is certainly being targeted, but so are the other parts of the body that "link" to that area of the hand. A trained massage therapist can treat neck and head pain, arthritis and poor circulation by honing in on specific areas of the hand while administering a hand massage. 부천출장안마
