Having a knowledge of hand reflexology is great because how
many places can you take your shoes off and do foot reflexology. Hand reflexology can
be done anytime anywhere. It really isn't difficult.
If you put your hands up straight in front of you with the palms
out it reflects the peculiar part of the body, with the thumbs representing the
head, that you need to work for a particular problem. The main thing to
remember is that if you hit a sore spot you need to work it really hard because
this represent a blockage of your energy and you must open up that blockage.
You begin with firmly poking the tip of each finger a number of
times with the nail of the index finger or thumb of your other hand. Then
you press and pull on the webs between the fingers. Both of these actions
are to help your sinuses.
Then press all of your fingers,
with the index finger and thumb, first top and bottom then on the sides.
Next you work your glands by pressing and rolling over the pads of your thumbs
and the middle of your palms.
The stomach is represented by the fleshy part of your palm just below your thumb
and if you trail along just above your wrist is the representation of your
intestines. These should be press and rolled also. After that just
continue to press and roll over the rest of the palm of your hand. Be careful
you don't press too hard in the fleshy part about one inch below your little
finger on your left hand because this represents your heart and you must be
careful not to send too much energy to your heart.
Once the inside of your hands have been done then you need to do the back of
your hand continuing with the press and roll.
Continue up your arms with the back of the arm on the sides representing your
reproductive system with the center up the back representing your backbone.
Once again press and roll.
Be sure you do both hands. I think you will be surprised at how quick you
can become at doing your hands. Once you start doing this all the time
your health will improve and you will find less sore spots to work on and so it
can be done quickly. The best thing is to continue doing your hands the
rest of your life especially since it is so easy.
Doing the tips of your
fingers and webs of your hand work amazingly well for your sinuses. I have
seen people with colds and their noses are running like faucets have this clear
up shortly after doing their hands.
I have found that if I feel a cold
sore coming on, with the tingling and tightness, I keep pressing on the end of
the fingers associated with the side where the cold sore is appearing and it
just goes away and doesn't appear.
If you feel you have a
health problem (like an ear infection) you can just keep searching the
particular part of the hand where it is sore and continue to work it with the
press and roll on and off for awhile until the problem clears up. It is
interesting to see that if you check the same place on the other hand, where the
other ear is represented that is not infected, it won't be sore.
Remember you don't
really need a map of the hand. As long as you have a general idea of the
relationships, finding the sore spots will let you know you are working your
