Have you ever had to sit in one place longer then you’d like, as in an airplane or in a classroom?
Have your legs ever felt like they’ve gotten stiff from sitting there to long? According to reflexology or Korean hand acupuncture you can easily affect those stiff areas by applying pressure to your hands.
The hand is a micro system of your body, it’s an extension of your being and therefore it’s intrically connected to the rest of you. According to Korean hand acupuncture your hand is like a mirror image of your body. Applying pressure to the hand will direct better blood circulation and release hormones throughout the body, which can improve multiple systems at once.
Above is a diagram of where each organ and body part lies in your hand, if an area is bothering you its good to apply pressure to that area a few times a day for a few minutes. Although, just massaging the entire hand or even just squeezing the tips of each finger on a daily basis can and will help the rest of the body maintain a level of balance.
Hand Massage is one of the easiest ways to promote relaxation and good health through out the body. If you work with your hands a lot too, a daily two-minute hand massage will bring about better circulation throughout the joints and tendons of the hand keeping them limber and strong.
A hand massage doesn’t take long and can feel pretty good with the right pressure, making it a habit and doing it on a daily basis can over time bring relief to troubled areas.
