Hand massage and exercise both help the circulation and relieve tension and stiffness. Always massage towards the wrist using the thumb and index finger. Make small rotary movements on each joint with the little finger.
The following exercises should be practiced daily:
(I) Stretch your fingers out as tautly as possible, relax and then throw them out again. Repeat this several times.
(2) Shake your hands until they are completely relaxed and limp.
(3) Circle your hands from the wrist, making the circle as deep as possible. Repeat this several times.
