Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition arising from the compression of the median nerve of the wrist. Symptoms are pain, numbness and tingling in the thumb, index finger, middle finger and ring fingers. CTS can be caused by extended usage of the computer, where the position of the hands and wrist is fixed for hours at a time. Wrist guards, which can be purchased in your local drug store, and taking time to stretch your hands and wrist during your work day can help alleviate symptoms of CTS.
Massage will keep the circulation going and keep muscles and tendons loose. If you suffer from CTS, you should feel some relief from targeted therapy after just a handful of sessions. We work the entire forearm and elbow, in addition to the hand and wrist. This massage is not only extremely beneficial for CTS, but it feels incredible.
