It is believed that each finger is linked to a different feeling or emotion, as follows:
- The Thumb can help you treat worry and anxiety.
- The Index finger will aid in overcoming fears.
- The Middle finger regulates feelings of bitterness and rage.
- The Ring finger treats depression and melancholy.
- The Little finger manages stress, supports optimism, and boosts self-esteem.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
The main purpose of this Japanese technique is to create balance of all the opposing energy forces present in your body. Namely, you should take one finger at a time, and grasp it by using the other hand. Next, each finger should be wrapped around it.
Then, it is advisable to hold every finger for one to two fingers until you feel the pulse.
You can also bring yourself into a deeper state of relaxation by putting slight pressure to your palm’s center by using the thumb of the other hand. You should hold it for about 60 seconds.
Practicing this self-relaxation technique daily can greatly reduce your stress and balance your spirit.
