COVID-19 concerns add another layer to health concerns. We need to stay safe and to continue being well. This is more challenging these days. This post is about the physical implications of the pandemic. Firstly, here are two self care options to support your health. Next, there is information from international experts to support you. Lastly, how can you get more support for your health during COVID-19 times?
Health support for you
You can help yourself simply by holding your fingers. Each finger has specific links to energetic pathways in your body. In sessions, trained practitioners help you feel better – whether it’s in person or online. If you can’t get to a Jin Shin Jyutsu session or would like to practice self-care, here are two options that may help.
Self care options
Self care option 1: Holding your thumb can help support your immune system, decrease your worries, help with digestive issues, and help maintain boundaries in your life
Self care option 2: Holding your ring finger can support your breathing. It also helps to let things go, helps with grief, and helps process things in your life.
Information from international experts
Keeping yourself safe is so important – and we can do this in straightforward ways. According to experts we need to practice good hygiene, wear our face masks, and maintain physical distancing when possible. (Ruth Werner – advisor to the US CDC – and speaker at the Massage Mastery Summit).
Body systems affected by COVID-19
Every day the scientists are learning more about the COVID-19 virus. For example, it affects the endothelial cells, which line the blood vessels, lymph vessels, the lungs, and the heart. This means that all our systems can be affected (The Lancet journal and Nature).
Even so, we all want to feel a bit better. You can receive a session that is just for you – each hand position and sequence are picked to best support you and your concerns. These sessions can be done in person for those who are vaccinated, and they can be done online if you don’t live near a practitioner or if you are not feeling well enough to travel.
There are so many options with Jin Shin Jyutsu acupressure – here’s a link to more information for you: Spend an hour on your self-care.
