Hand reflexology: the headache-break hand massage.

‘The headache-break hand massage’ is a reflexology technique useful for healing migraine!

Olivia Rosewood has described how a simple hand reflexology technique can help to heal a serious headache or migrane attack.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes that a certain spot on the hand corresponds to the adrenal glands, of which the function is to clear blockages from this glands’ energy circuit, and as a results: bringing life force to these often overworked treasures.

Olivia Rosewood – author of spiritual book – says:

“To give yourself a break from a headache or even just a bit more zip in your doo-da, find the most tender spot between your thumb and forefinger. Use your other thumb and forefinger to pinch this spot from the top and palm of your hand (see the right picture above), the way you might pinch a penny should there be a world-wide financial crisis. Take a few deep breaths, and release this spot when you have an indication that you have unblocked this energy point: usually your pain subsides.”

The function of fingerprints: ‘finger grip’ + ‘touch filter’:

Many palmists & hand analysts including the fingerprints in a hand reading. But what is the basic function of our fingerprints really?

Researchers from Paris (France) have recently presented new evidence that your fingerprints not only provide ‘finger-grip’, but the ridges also function as a filter for the human touch!

The word ‘fingerprints’ refers to the impressions made by the skin ridges on the fingers & thumbs – by the way: palms can leave the same impressions: ‘palmprints‘.

The major function of these skin ridges is to provide ‘friction’, or ‘traction’, when we grasp objects in daily life. And as a consequence because of the presence of skin ridges on our fingers & palms, objects held in our hands do not slip through our fingers.

For many years scientists believed that the fingerprints (skin ridges) have a second function: the enhancement of our sense of touch. But untill recentely there was hardly any hard evidence for this assumption. But times have changed since january 2009: French physicists at the ‘École Normale Supérieure‘ in Paris have presented new research. They found that the skin ridges (fingerprints) also amplify / filter vibrations triggered when our fingertips brush across an uneven surface. These processes help transmiting the signals of ‘touch’ to deeply embedded nerves involved in fine texture perception.

Some facts reported by the French fingerprint research:

• The researchers report that certain vibrations from the patterned fingertip are 100 times stronger than those from the smooth fingertip.

• The distinctiveness of fingerprint patterns from one person to the next does NOT(!) seem to have an effect on filtering capabilities – so regarding the sensitivity for ‘finger-touch’ it hardly makes any difference what type of fingerprints you have!

• The research was done with an ‘artificial fingertip’ – the first ever presented in the world!
