I have been super busy and my hands have been hurting a bit. This week I’m going to show you the self Shiatsu massage on hands that I’m doing for my hands.
Let’s start with the top of the hand. Put three imaginary dots on the space between the extensions of the finger bones. With five fingers you have four spaces between the finger bones. Press each dot or stimulate each dot with a hooked thumb. Repeat on all the dots. If you are pregnant, skip the space between your thumb and index finger as there is an acupressure point to induce labor.
Now the fingers. Put imaginary dots on each finger. On the thumb, three dots on three locations with six dots between the base and the joint and three dots at the nail base. On the rest of the fingers, three dots on four locations with six dots between the base and the joint. Three dots in the middle section. And three dots at the nail base. Press or stimulate every single dot with a hooked thumb.
Then the palm. Put three imaginary dots on three lines. Again, press or stimulate each dot with a hooked thumb or index finger joint.
Finish up with a shake and snap on each finger. I have a link to another video below on how to do this particular technique.
