It could be defined as a simple therapy without contraindications. We are talking about mudras, also known as hand yoga because they provide special positions to rebalance body and mind and alleviate in this way various illnesses, including stress, anxiety, stomach ache, swelling and constipation.
Mudras are tightly connected with the energy of the universe and their purpose is precisely to channel this energy into our body and therefore benefit from it. According to Eastern tradition, the ends of the energy channels (the so-called meridians) of all our organs arrive into the fingers. Therefore, by stimulating these meridians with the correct positions of the hands and fingers, it is possible to eliminate the blocks that cause these disorders. The advantage of mudras is that they can be practiced at any time, at home and away from home and also in various positions: from sitting, lying down or even walking.
Here are 5 examples of mudras that can help you prevent or fight certain diseases:
- MAHA MUDRA (for intestinal disorders): combine the tips of the annular strips with each other and the tips of the little finger and thumb with each hand. Take 10 deep breaths and then change fingers: combine the tips of the little fingers and each hand with the tips of the annular and thumb. Repeat three times a day for 5 minutes.
- LINGA MUDRA (for colds): use it three times a day for 15 minutes. The palms of the hands together and cross the fingers, leaving a thumb upright; surrounds the thumb with the index and thumb of the other hand.
