Japanese Stress Relief Technique

A certain amount of stress in our lives is normal, and sometimes even necessary. However, an overdose of stress can interfere with our daily activities, personal life and health. Luckily, there are many alternative methods and techniques that can help reduce the emotional and mental strain we feel each day. One of them is this old Japanese technique, based on massaging the fingers. To practice this technique, it is important to realize that each of the fingers on our hands represent a certain feeling or behavior.

Thumb

When you rub your thumb, you reduce emotions like anxiety, nervousness and worry.

Index Finger

Rubbing the index finger contributes to reducing some of the fears you might be feeling.

Middle Finger

Rub your middle finger to control the feelings of anger and resentment.

Ring Finger

Massaging the ring finger can reduce the feelings of depression and sadness. Also, you may become more determined in your decisions.

Little Finger

Rubbing the little finger can reduce anxiety, and increase optimism and self-confidence.

To create harmony among your life energy and the body, grasp the finger you want to massage with your opposite hand, grasping it with all your fingers. Hold each finger for about 2 minutes. The moment you start feeling the pulse, you’ll know that this method works. To calm your mind and rushing thoughts, gently press the center of one of your palms with the thumb of the opposite hand. Hold it for about a minute. Practicing these techniques every day will help you create an inner balance, and remain calm and positive.
