What most people do when pain attacks is reach for pain killers or seek for doctor’s advice. However, you can often help yourself without having to take medications or leave the comfort of your home.
Reflexology is a quite recent philosophy, at least in the Western world, which suggests that each part of the human body is linked to the hands.
The thumb is related to the heart and lungs. When you have an accelerated heart rhythm, rub your thumb then pull it. This will slow down your heart beat.
The forefinger is linked to the colon and stomach. If you are suffering from constipation or abdominal pain, press your forefinger, rub it for 60 seconds then pull it. You condition will improve significantly in no time.
The middle finger is related to the heart, small intestine, blood and respiratory system. Each time you feel dizzy or sleepless, especially when travelling, stretch out your middle finger and rub it.
The ring finger is related to your mood, so whenever you feel depressed, massage this finger and you will instantly feel better.
The small finger is linked to the kidneys, but also to the head and neck. Whenever you have a headache or a pain in the neck, massage your pinkie and you’ll get instant relief.
The palms are related to the nervous system, so stimulating blood circulation in the palms can be extremely beneficial for your psychological health. Clapping your hands is one way to do this.
