This week's Reflexology Minute:
Accessing the Entire Body through a micro map in your hands.
You will learn:
There are micro maps of the body all over our body. Maps we can read (like iridology) and maps we can access through touch techniques (like the reflexology points in our hands, feet, ears, and face). This week's micro map is one of my favorites as it is one of the smallest maps on the body, making it incredibly easy to access and effective.
In anatomical position, this micro map is located on the dorsum along the lateral side of the second metacarpal bone in both hands. Press or thumb walk into the side of the metacarpal bone for a few seconds on each side (approximately 7 seconds on each hand)..
Double down! If you can spare 30 seconds, do three passes for 5 seconds each per hand.
By pressing along this area you are accessing every part of your body. I recommend using the thumb walking technique but you can also use your pointer finger or knuckle to press down into these points, whatever is easiest for you.
