Ten Minute Hand Massage Relaxation Retreat

Posted on September 29, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

This is the first of my posts on mini-relaxation retreats using spa treatments and relaxation techniques.  If your hands hurt after spending time on the computer or just after a session of knitting, this post is just for you.

First, let’s check out some ancient Chinese hand massage knowledge to give use some back ground for the videos that show massage techniques:  http://www.chinese-holistic-health-exercises.com/printable-hand-reflexology-chart.html

Next, a good video on how to give yourself a hand massage:  http://www.veria.com/video/self-hand-massage-techniques.html (click on the green arrow in picture to start video)

Now, if you have someone to give you a hand massage, this is a great video to check out:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPQbffBjWz8

After your massage, try this Sugar and Lime Juice Scrub for hands:  http://www.smartskincare.com/tips/skinrecipe_personalcare_20070907.html

Here are some tips for those with computer hand pain:   http://webaccess.berkeley.edu/hand-tips.php

Putting it all together:

1)   Look at the Chinese hand care link to get some general knowledge and print out the reflexology chart to work on certain areas, if you’d like.

2)  Choose either the one or two person hand massage video and follow the steps.

3)  Now for the spa treatment:  Sugar and Lime Scrub to smooth hands.  Remember to rinse the scrub off well after the treatment.

4)  Follow up with some aloe vera gel to soften and protect.

Feel pampered!

I don’t know If I said it already but …Cool site, love the info. I do a lot of research online on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks, 🙂

A definite great read..Jim Bean

Your site was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last Thursday.

Bill, have a video on Indian Head Massage that is really terrific. Trying to find a nice spa treatment to go with it before I post it. S.G.
