Start with an old-fashioned finger pull. Commencing with your favorite finger, pull it back and forth several times; gently at first and then with rigor. Repeat this process until all the fingers have been pulled.
To loosen the wrist, arm and shoulder simultaneously, one must adopt the attitude of a young frigate bird.
Begin by letting the arms hang limply by your sides. Start to slowly shake the arms, wrists and hands. Raise the arms out, perpendicular to the elbows and continue the shaking. Now lift the arms up high and shake the shoulders, neck and head in a forward and backward motion. Continue to do this
