Hand and Wrist

● From a 70-year-old retired teacher in California: “I am an amateur pianist and 3 years ago purchased a Steinway.  I immediately started playing it about 4 hours a day. The stiffness of the pedals caused me to experience great pain in my right leg.  My chiropractor worked on it off and on.  I could only practice 10 minutes at a time due to the pain.  A bummer for waiting 66 years to get a Steinway!   A year ago I started playing music by Mompou, and the hand positions are horrid.  My right hand also started to hurt and I practiced with bandages etc.  Sometimes I resorted to left hand practice alone.  Suddenly I got the idea to practice barefoot and put an electrode patch on the palm of my right hand.  I also put a grounding band on a large hematoma I got on my right arm from a bad blood draw.  I immediately could put in 3 hours on the piano.  There are a number of world-renowned pianists who have had to turn to conducting and teaching because of pain in their hands.  It would be a service to the world of music if they started grounding themselves.”

● From a woman in Australia: “I have no more wrist pain that I have had for the last 3 years from 30 years of dog grooming. I can now sleep without pain and can groom without having pain while I am working.”

● “For eight years I suffered 24/7 from considerable leg pain due to neuropathy. After some 18 to 20 months of sleeping grounded on an Earthing sheet, my legs are completely healed of the neuropathy. For two and half years now, I’ve had no problem with neuropathy. What worked for me may not work for everyone, but this is my result. I have a left shoulder that has been seriously injured three times in my life, and I attach three or four grounding patches to it each night as I sleep and by the next morning 90-95% of the pain is gone. I’ve also used the patches to relieve the pain of a bum knee, back pain, headaches, sore throats, pain in my hands, and to prevent leg cramps. When I feel cramping coming on, I quickly attach an Earthing patch to the muscle in question and the tendency to cramping immediately stops.” (U.S.)

● “I believe I have had significant benefit from sleeping grounded. I had lots of ‘pins and needles’ and numbness through my hands, arms, legs feet and spreading through my body – which is disappearing. Also, I had 2 Morton’s Neuromas in my feet (that I had taken cortisone for) and now they have almost disappeared. I believe it’s the sheet that’s doing the magic. Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue between the third and fourth toes, and it’s quite painful.”
