Mini Massage Lesson: Wrist Stretches

Your wrists go through a lot, and they let you know it! Fortunately some simple stretches can keep them calm and happy.


Stretch #1:

  • Extend your arm in front of you, flexing your hand so that your fingers are pointed to the ceiling.

  • With your other hand, grab the base of your fingers and your palm (DO NOT PULL ON YOUR FINGERS) and pull your whole hand back towards you.

  • Hold for a few seconds, then relax. Repeat a few times, as you feel is enough.


Stretch #2:

  • Pretty much the same as stretch #1, except the fingers are pointed toward the floor.

  • Grab hold of your hand, pull towards you.

  • Hold for a few seconds, then relax. Repeat a few times, as you feel is enough.


Stretch #3:

  • Put both hands flat together, elbows extended straight out to sides.

  • Press fingers together, while pulling the palms of the hands apart, then return to flat.

  • (Sometimes this exercise is called "spider doing push-ups on a mirror")

  • Repeat this for a few reps, until you feel this is enough.


Stretch #4:

  • Put both hands together, about the height of the middle of the chest, elbows extended straight out to sides.

  • Keeping both hands as tight together as possible, lower the hands straight down toward the waist, then return up to original position.

  • Repeat several times, until you feel this is enough.
