Magical Power of Your Hands

Do you know that your hands can be a magical tool for your health? According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), your hands are like a mini-universe that reflects your over health. This is the reason why palm reading can be a useful tool to predict your health challenges. From reflexology, your hands are just like your feet which reflect your internal organs and spell the layout of your whole body. By stimulating certain parts of your hands, you can give your internal organs a good massage and even get rid of some stubborn health challenges that have been bothering you for a while. Let’s dive into the magic power of your hands now.

No wonder many of us are experiencing headaches and shoulder pain without knowing the victim is the neck. Did you pay attention to the messages about the pain and soreness in your neck? If you bend your head to 60 degrees, it adds almost 60 pounds to your neck; your hands even have trouble lifting such a heavy load. The image below will show you how much pressure you add to your neck when you bend your heads to various degrees.
