When you moisturize your hands or feet, also give them a massage. This helps keep blood flowing to your extremities and will get rid of aches and pains too. This is a great way to help relax your body and deal with the stress your digits go through when at work.
When giving a massage, make sure that you use the right amount of pressure. It is a delicate balance between using too much pressure and not enough. Take some time to practice. Ask the person you are giving the massage to if you are using too much or too little. Their feedback should dictate the amount of pressure you use.
You can use a technique called circling hands. This technique starts at the lower back and works its way up. You keep your hands flat, rubbing in a counter-clockwise motion. Make sure your fingers are pointed away from the spine and kept spread out. You can do one hand at a time, or you can do both.
If you notice knots in the back while you are giving a massage, you can kneed them out with some pressure from your fists. Simply get your fists into a ball and work them over the knotted spot for a few minutes. Apply more pressure if the knots are deeper, as long as the recipient remains comfortable.
