Macrame Increases Fine Motor Skills and Dexterity

by Macrame

TRIVIA: Tying knots helps to increase your fine motor skills and bilateral dexterity. It is a perfect exercise for those with joint and muscle pain in their hands and fingers.

Macrame is a great craft to pursue because it is a good form of exercise for the fingers and the wrist.   Your joints will remain loose and strong when you put them through the motions of tying macrame knots.

As well, Macrame is great for distressing and relaxing at the end of the day.  You will start to feel relaxed and satisfied after tying a few knots and this leads to feelings of satisfaction when you see the results of your handiwork.

If you know someone that suffers from joint pain, why don’t you try sharing a simple knot tying project with them to see if they experience any relief from the pain in their hands? Sometimes keeping the hands and fingers active can really help. So get out there and share your love of macrame with someone who could use a little bit of hand exercise!

Good advice! Although this week my fingers are super sore from beading my macrame bracelets. I think a large macrame project would be best! Can’t wait to get started on a new larger project (without those fiddly little beads) 😀
