According to an ancient Japanse practice, it is possible to heal many disorders simply by massaging your fingers for 15 minutes a day.
Our fingers are closely related with various areas of the body, which in turn are related to our emotions. This is the main idea of the Jin Shin Jyutsu, a Japanese practice that cures various deseases and re-balances energy and emotions in just a few minutes, if followed consistently. Let’s see how to practice Jin Shin Jyutsu.
The technique of Jin Shin Jyutsu
According to master Jiro Murai, who created this technique in the early years of the 20th century, each finger is related to two organs, which in turn express some of the most common emotions. By manipulating certain areas, it would be possible to return to a state of balance between body and soul, improving our health.
The procedure is very simple: every morning, gently massage the fingers of your left hand, for about 3 minutes each. In the evening, before going to bed, do the same thing with the fingers of the right hand. In this way, you will realign the energy channels of your body.
