Hand Massage Step by Step

Physical contact is a human need, and more in older adults and kids. From birth to death we need caresses, hugs, and physical contact to maintain a good state of emotion. And also physical well-being. That is why hand massage is so important. Or rather, the effects produced by this massage go beyond relaxing the mind and body. Massage can lead to:

  • Stimulation of the immune system.
  • Decrease in heart rate.
  • Decrease in blood pressure.
  • Increased joint flexibility.
  • Improved circulation.
  • Sense of well-being and decreased anxiety.
  • Increased psychosocial well-being and self-esteem.

Hand Massage Step by Step

Firstly, establish a connection:
Take the hand of the massaged person and look him in the eye. This eye contact will allow you to establish a connection with him. And as a result, make him feel that he is the center of attention.
 
Relaxation:
Start by giving gentle movements using the palms of the hands and going from the center of the palm to the fingers. This can be repeated as many times as you like.
 
Pressure:
Place your thumb on the palm of the other person’s hand. Exert moderate force and concentrate on the muscles by making small circles. Repeat this step, but use the knuckles of the hand instead of the thumb. Next, with your index finger run over the tendons on the back of the hand. Finish gently between the skin of the fingers.
Release stress:
Take the whole hand from side to side and squeeze gently; repeat two or three times. Then use your fingers as if they were a ring, take finger by finger and gently squeeze.
 
Circles:
Gently take the person’s wrist with one hand and the rest of the hand with the other. Next, make slow up and down movements, like the feet when pressing the accelerator of the car.
