Want to keep your wrists happy and healthy as you massage? Start your day with a quick warm-up! In this video, I demonstrate two easy exercises that engage everything from your wrists to your elbows.
In the first, stay superficial. Think of moving and warming the skin, keeping in mind that you’ll be having effects much deeper than that. Be vigorous with this one.
In the second, we’re doing a series of brief pin and stretch techniques. There’s no need to be too specific with where you squeeze—grab a hunk of forearm and take your wrist through a gentle range of motion. You’ll be working with the flexors, extensors, supinators, and pronators, but there’s no need to hone in on them. Be gentle with this! We’re always harder on our own bodies than we would ever be with a client.
