The hands & wrists have almost become an epidemic in our society. With all the technology we have at our fingertips, we are repetitively stressing our hands and wrists on a daily basis. Hours at the computer, texting, gaming, not to mention a long list of activities that require fine motor skills, absolutely contracts the muscles that go through your forearm down into your hands and fingers.
Keeping these muscles working correctly is essential for avoiding carpal tunnel issues and other hand and wrist problems associated with overuse.
Caring for your hands & wrists can help in preventing carpal tunnel and other neuro-muscular conditions that cause pain and tension in wrists and hands.
It's important to give your hands some time to unwind at the end of the day. The Yamuna® Hands & Wrists routines will give you the tools and techniques to increase flexibility, strengthen, tone and improve alignment by learning how to unwind systematically from the arms through to the wrists, hands and fingers.
