I also use the fleshy part of my palms, around the outside, like 
below the pinky and below the thumb.  I have a FastTake, which 
doesn't require as much blood.  I usually need to have been active 
though, to make sure my hands are getting full circulation.  Doesn't 
seem to heal quite as quickly as fingers though.  Don't know why.
