Chinese medicine is one of the longest practiced forms of medicine in our history. The study of Jin Shin Jyutsu is a form of traditional Chinese medicine which looks at the 26 different energy centers of the body. All of the 26 energy points throughout the body are connected and can be stimulated by simple pressure points found in your fingers.
Jin Shin Jyutsu has a main focus on the fingers and toes. All 26 energy points are connected to different organs throughout the body and by massaging certain points in your fingers, good, positive energy can be sent to those organs to stimulate them and keep them healthy.
Here is what part of the body is effected by massaging a certain finger.
The thumb is joined to the heart and lungs. A rapid heartbeat of breathlessness can be relieved through soft rubbing and pulling on the thumb.
The Index Finger
The index finger is connected to the gastro-intestinal tract. If you have an upset stomach or constipation, then gently rubbing and pulling on the index finger should quickly alleviate the symptoms.
The Middle Finger
The middle finger is linked to our circulation system. For dizziness and nausea, massaging the middle finger is particularly good for relieving those symptoms. This method can also help with insomnia.
The Ring Finger
The ring finger, according to the study of Jin Shin Jyutsu, is responsible for improving our mood. If you’re in a bad mood, or not feeling very patient, then massage this finger to calm down and relax.
The Pinky Finger
The pinky finger, or ‘little finger’ is connected to the kidney and head. Regular application of the Jin Shin Jyutsu methods to the little finger can start the healing process for kidneys. For headaches and neck aches, pressing on this little finger should also alleviate the pain.
