Most of the time when we book in for a massage we are thinking about some sort of pain, tension or discomfort in our bodies. The majority of the time the massage focuses on the back and neck, it seems to be where we most notice these pains and tensions!
Don't get me wrong, these are great and much needed places to massage, yet over the years there are some powerful release points of the body that can be forgotten with everything else going on.
The feet are a well respected body part in many cultures, centred around the belief that happy and health feet equals a happy and healthy body. I have to admit I've seen some good results and shifts when working on these. The head and also the hands seem to be key points of the body that respond well to bodywork.
So next time you book your massage, it might be nice to have your hands included. If you think about it, our hands are constantly working and most of us would benefit from a bit of nurturing in this area.
In the meantime, try a nice hand bath at home. Soak your hands in some nice bath salts and warm water (I like Soakology!) and perhaps massage with a nice moisturiser when you're done. After all, our hands deserve some love and care too!
