You’re a dedicated knowledge worker. You type away at your PDA’s tiny keyboard at telegraph-operator speed, thumbs a blur, forgetful of proper posture or ergonomic positioning. After a few hours, your fingers are cramped and curled — permanently, you think.
You could blame the BlackBerry for your misery, but that wouldn’t heal you. Instead, hop a plane to Indian Wells, California, where help is at hand. There, you’ll turn your aching digits over to the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort and Spa, where experts will warm and knead and stretch not only your fingers but your arms and shoulders, using a “Blackberry Balm” of soothing oils, antioxidants, and exfoliants. The 25-minute treatment is $80 (but you’ll have to ask HR whether it’s covered by workers’ comp).
