As a professional musician and massage therapist, I put my hands through a lot most days of the week. Since my livelihood depends on my hands being highly functional, I’ve always sought out the highest quality products to help keep them humming along at full capacity.
Having tried many different lotions and creams as a result of being a massage therapist, I found that what worked well for my clients always left something to be desired when it came to using it on myself. Colorado’s dry air, and having to do lots of hand washing in my practice, would do a real number on my skin.
So I’ve been on the hunt for something that would help prevent the skin on my hands from cracking and taking on a leathery appearance, and something that would also address the soreness and aching. In addition, I wanted something that would reduce inflammation, as it is one of the main factors in preventable overuse injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
After discovering Red Cat Apothecary’s magic hand salve, I was in a near state of disbelief one morning after applying it to my hands the night before. I used to use a carousel of different lotions, creams, and salves to try and keep my hands in good shape. I’m so pleased to have finally found something that does everything I need it to, in a single salve.
Unsurprisingly, I’ve experimented with Magic Hands on other areas of the body and found it to be just as good, especially on major joints like the knees and shoulders. A huge bonus is being able to support a small local business, whose products are created by an actual herbalist who trained at one of the most renowned herbalism schools in the country.
If keeping your hands in great shape is a priority for you, I can’t recommend Red Cat Apothecary’s Magic Hand salve enough!
