So on my afternoon stroll around YouTube, I came across this kookie video of basic tips for musicians to help keep their shoulders, arms and hands loose. These self massage techniques would be great as a warm up and for general relief when playing.

Brace yourself for this guy’s eccentricity and enjoy:

Also check out our Musicians Guide to Arm and Hand Self Massage for more good stuff. You probably won’t use every technique we share, but it’s important to find a few that work for you.

However, don’t rely on these self massage if you are suffering from an injury. If you’re a guitarist in pain, injured drummer, suffering piano player or other musician in pain, it’s important to seek the help of a qualified health professional as soon as possible – such as your friendly Skeletal Harmonics Musculoskeletal Health Team in Brisbane West End (wink, wink).
