Have you enjoyed a wonderful weekend outside, working in the garden, doing a project, trying out a new sport? Your Arms and Hands might be very sore now.
Here is a guide to loosen up the tight muscles and stretch the forearms and wrists. Your body will appreciate stretching before and after the work. Take a little time to recover faster from the strain.
We can get outside to do all the projects we thought about all winter long- work or fun. Just remember your body needs to get eased into physical work. Building stone walls or putting a deck onto your house is heavy work. So is cleaning up brush or digging up your garden to prepare vegetable beds. Getting on your bike or on a paddle board is requiring your muscles to work very differently than you are used to. Stretching and loosening your muscles is easy to forget, but your body will be very grateful when you remember. This is a good way to stay healthy and prevent injury. Loose muscles will be able to work more efficiently and not get strained. Receiving a massage after strenuous work will help recover from aches and pains and get your body back in balance.
This is a video I did while still at The Maine Beehive, but the information still applies. Now you can call me directly at 207-542-4285 to schedule your massage to be proactive and stay healthy.
