Help on the way for "BlackBerry Thumb"
If you've been sufffering from a sore thumb lately AND are an excessive BlackBerry user, welcome to the growing list of people with the "BlackBerry Thumb" syndrome. There is a ray of hope, however, which does not involve you junking your favorite gadget. The Hyatt hotels of North America have launched the BlackBerry Balm hand massage in response to their growing list of business clientele complaining of this malady. The 30-minute massage is available in most of the N.A. spas and uses a specially made BlackBerry Balm to relieve the pain. You shell out $30 for the massage that focuses on counteracting tension on various hand and arm muscles, specifically in the thumbs and overworked wrists.
Worthwhile checking it out if you happen to be at a Hyatt. But better still, go easy on your PDAs folks, prevention is way, way better than cure.
