Learn how the connective tissue in your hands and feet gets dehydrated, the common aches and pains it can cause, and how to rehydrate this essential system in your body. Learn simple self treatments you can do at home to erase pain and tension in your hands and feet brought on by everyday stress, overused, and age. The simple self treatment can make your whole body feel better and provide relief from neck and low back pain, arthritis, bunions, planter fasciitis, and carpal tunnel.
