Jin Shin Jyutsu is a healing art that not a lot of people have heard of.
We came across this about four years ago when a friend of mine had a talk at her 'Women's guild'.
We bought a basic book and did a lot of online searching and have been hooked on this since that time.
We mainly use our hands, but if you wanted to go further there are many other points on the body that can be used in a similar way to acupuncture.
As you can see, each finger represents a different part of the body and emotions.
By simply holding the relevant finger you can bring about subtle changes in your body.
I know many people will be sceptical about this but I can assure you it works.
Whether this is all in the mind or not I can't say but if you feel something is doing you good then surely it is.
All I know is that when Tom is really short of breath , say after walking too fast or trying the stairs he sits down and holds the little and ring fingers together (heart and lungs) and his breathing returns to normal in no time.
I have used this for many things like anger when I am up the wall or worry when things get too much and it does calm me by holding the relevant finger for a while.
Also holding the left little finger is helpful to bring down the blood pressure
You can have a total work out by holding each finger on each hand in turn to give yourself a real refresher
Here is a couple of links to get you started if you are interested.
I have held off from blogging about this as I know it may be a bit controversial but wanted to share it with you.
After all it's not going to kill you to hold your finger for a bit and you never know you may get hooked as well.lol
