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.
Here is what you need to know about the relation between your fingers and other organs, and what you need to do to get rid of the pain.
Forefinger – It’s linked with the colon and the stomach. This means that if you are suffering from constipation or abdominal pain, you should press your forefinger, and rub it for 60 seconds, and then you need to pull it. You will notice that your condition will improved significantly.
Thumb – The heart and lungs are connected to the thumb. By rubbing and pulling the thumb, you can slowdown your heartbeat and allow yourself breathe easier.
Middle finger – It is linked to our cardiovascular and respiratory system. When you feel sleepless or dizzy stretch out your middle finger and rub it.
Ring finger – This finger is related to your mood, meaning that you should massage it every time you feel depressed or in a bad mood. You will notice that your mood will be improved.
Small finger – It 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.
Palms – They are related with 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.
