Clerical duties like typing, scrolling, texting, carrying boxes, and phone cradling overwork muscles and joints. This leads to inflammation, numbness, and burning pain in the arms, wrists, and hands.

Massage therapy especially helps in the early stages of repetitive strain injuries before serious damage. Massage boosts circulation, bringing fresh oxygenated blood to irritated areas.

Forearm and wrist massages use compression, stretching, and trigger point therapy to release muscle knots and tension points. Gentle hand massages mobilize stiff joints.

Nerve-rich areas are massaged with a light touch to calm inflammation and numbness. Stretches open the chest and strengthen rounded shoulders.

When performed preventatively, regular massages can stop arm and hand pain before it escalates into long-term disability necessitating surgery or medication.

Targeted massage techniques bring relief to overused arms, wrists, and hands prone to repetitive strain injuries from clerical work. Preventative massage keeps pain at bay.
