Having pain or trouble in any part of the body usually means either waiting for it to pass or popping a pill to get rid of it. Most of us have some or the other trouble going on with our health and body every now and then and we find the easy way out by popping a pill. But there is a natural way to find relief and it is called reflexology.
Reflexology is the application of appropriate or needed amount of pressure onto specific points and areas on different parts of the body like the feet, ears or hands. People practicing this art believe that all these points are connected to different body parts and pressing them can have beneficial effects on those organs and on the general health of the person.
Here is how putting pressure on the digits of your hand can help you a lot.
The thumb of your hand is connected to the heart in the body. Sometimes heart starts to race due to anxiety or nervousness. Or sometimes it slows down due to some problem, that’s when you can rub your thumb and put pressure on it for getting the heart back into the normal rhythm and drive the anxiety away and calm yourself down.
The forefinger is connected to the colon and the stomach. Therefore if you have any kind of stomach or colon related issues, all you have to do is press on your forefinger for a minute. If you have stomach pain due to excessive eating or buildup of gas, simply put pressure on the forefinger (or you might even pull it, if you like doing that) and you will be relieved of that pain and gas.
If you are suffering from excessive constipations due reasons unknown, just put pressure on the forefinger for 60 seconds and you will have significant improvement in your condition after the 60 seconds.
3 Middle finger
The middle finger is actually linked and connected to the heart, small intestine, blood and the respiratory system. If you have any trouble breathing or are breathing too heavily, just put pressure on the middle finger to get some relief from the uneasiness.
Since the middle finger is also connected to the respiratory system and the heart, every time you feel uneasy at high altitudes or cannot fall asleep especially while traveling, all you need to do is apply adequate amount of pressure, without hurting the finger and you will feel relaxed.
4 Ring finger
The ring finger is related to your moods. So whenever you are feeling angry, or sad or depressed, just massage the ring finger for 60 seconds or so and you will start to feel better. Moods are also dependent on situations and are related to your mental health, but by massaging your finger and putting pressure on it, you distract your brain and the focus of the brain turns to the massage or the pressure and given the connection between the ring finger and moods, doing so will help you a lot.
5 Pinky finger and palms
The small finger or the pinky finger is connected to the kidneys and head and neck. So every time you feel a headache or a pull in the neck, massage the pinky finger and you will find that your situation is improving.
Also related to these digits are the palms and palms are connected to the nervous system. Therefore stimulating the blood flow in the nervous system can be good for your mental health and you can do so by clapping your hands.
