REFLEXOLOGY - HOW TO USE IT IN DAILY LIFE
Almost everyone has hard of reflexology. But what you may not know is just how simple it is to incorporate into your daily life with simple techniques that can be done anywhere. First, what exactly is reflexology? It's all about the various pressure points of the body. Applying pressure to the hands, feet, and ears in the correct way can relax your body, relieve pain, and relieve stress.
For this post, we'll focus on the hands since your hands are always right there out in the open and can easily be done anywhere. Even if you're on a subway or a plane with people looking at you, no one is going to think anything of someone massaging their fingers or wrists. The same can't be said however for someone massaging their feet out in public!
So let's look at the hand one finger at a time and see what a little massage can do. Massage each finger for 60 seconds to feel the benefit.
INDEX FINGER - Associated with the digestive system, particularly the stomach and spleen. This can help relieve stomach aches, digestive issues, as well as menstrual problems for women.
MIDDLE FINGER - This can help with Insomnia as well as nausea and motion sickness.
RING FINGER - This helps with the Lymphatic system which is extremely important for various functions of the body as well as removing toxins.
PINKY FINGER - This helps relieve neck and back pain as well as Migraines
THUMB - Last but not least, the thumb is associated with the heart and lungs and can help with problems inn those areas. Another little tip with the thumb is to blow on it for 60 seconnds. This will help relax you and relieve stress.
WRIST - Take a spot 3 fingers down from your wrist along the inside of your forearm. Press with your thumb and press your other fingers on the opposite side of your forearm. Do this for 2 minutes and it can go a long way towards relieving internal tension.
