This video shows some of the qi gong exercises that I've learned to increase circulation through the arms and to stretch the tendons in the hands and wrists. With these exercises, in addition to regular exercise, hot winter soups, and herbal teas you'll have warm toasty hands and a healthy body flowing with Qi.
The exercises include stretches that you can feel from your neck down to the tips of your fingers, wrist stretches to open the joint, and shaking and movement to flush lymph, blood, and Qi, creating greater circulation and flow. Stagnation causes disease, poor immune system, and cold extremities. By adding movement throughout the day you can keep your body healthy and flowing. I would recommend after every 45 minutes or an hour of sitting to take 10 or 15 minutes to do some of these exercises.
