Full mental and physical relaxation is essential. Stress reduction is THE most important thing we should blend in a healthy life style. While we sleep our body fully relaxes, but it's also very important to fully relax your body and soul at least once a day while being consious. I'm always looking for natural ways to relax during the day, while working in a stressful environment. One of my recent finds is The Three Thumps exercise. It doesn't only relax me mentally and physically, but it's also designed to boost and restore energy, increase strength and vitality, and strengthen the immune system. By learning this simple energy technique you can improve your health, sharpen your mind, and increase your joy and vitality without using any medicine. If you do this excercise 3 times a day, you'll start noticing the difference, I promise! Even with a busy schedule, see it as an investment in yourself. It's such a quick and simple exercise, you can do it anywhere at any moment of the day.
The Three Thumps excercise
1. Use several fingers or knuckles to tap the spots shown in the pictures. Tap vigorously on each set of spots. Focus on breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth during all the tapping.
2. To locate K-27 points place your fingers on your collarbone and move them inward towards the U-shaped notch at the top of your breastbone. Move your fingers to the bottom of the U and then move down and out about an inch to find the spots. Tap or massage for ten to fifteen seconds.
3. Place the fingers of either or both hands in the center of your sternum at the thymus gland. Tap there for fifteen to twenty seconds with your fingers or your knuckles.
4. Tap the neurolymphatic spleen points, beneath the breasts and down one rib, for fifteen seconds. Alternately, tap the spleen acupuncture points, located on the side of the body about four inches down from the arm pits, for fifteen seconds. If either set is more tender use these points in the future.
If you tried it, what do you think? Curious!! :)
