We use our hands for almost everything we do throughout the day, from checking email to chopping vegetables for dinner. On top of this, if your work requires you to use your hands in repetitive motions, then the muscles and joints of the hands, wrists and forearms are particularly at risk for inflammation.

Practicing this therapeutic sequence of exercises increases strength and flexibility in the small muscles of the hands and fingers, where over 25% of our body’s bones are located, helping reduce inflammation, removing built-up stress and increasing range of motion.

Namaste. Thank you Erica for this therapeutic practice. I am a yoga teacher recovering from TFCC cartilage tear and this practice helped me relax and open up the muscles and tendons surrounding my wrist injury. I will be sure to check out more of your practices on this site! Namaste.

I am healing from a sprained wrist and this felt great -- relieved the stiffness that has set in from wearing a wrist brace. Thank you! I am sure this routine will speed my healing!

Thank you for the video! Short and sweet warm-up for juggling, contact juggling, poi and other circus arts.

I work full time at my keyboard and I had noticed that the top of my right hand would ache or I'd get tingling sensations in my right arm from repeated movements (not so much typing but the darn mouse). I am doing this to find relief as I need my keyboard and mouse to earn my living (I work online full-time). thanks, I think this will help! I already feel better in the arms and this has helped me recognize that my hands need exercise too :)
