Hand massages are beneficial because for one, we don’t realize how much tension we hold in our hands. Think about it: we use our hands for everything. Even when we do get stressed out or angry, we tend to transfer that tension to our hands by tightly fastening parts of our fingers or fist clenching. So with a hand massage, you are essentially massaging one of the most tensed-up parts of your body. The exercises here are meant to encourage a sense of calmness and can be done anywhere.
