Reflexologists believe that the hands are considered to have electrical properties.
The right hand palm being positive and the left hand palm negative.The right hand also has a reinforcing, stimulating effect while the left has a calming, sedative effect.
The back of each hand is opposite to the palm, so the right is negative and the left positive.This is important when using reflexology as if the object is to revitalise the body and restore energy flow, then the right hand will have the best effect. The left hand, with its calming effect is best used for pain.
Since hand reflexology is performed by applying pressure from fingers and thumbs on reflex points on the hands, the practice can provide an easy, cost-effective and safe way to treat ailments.While reflexology hand mapping feels best (and may be more effective) when done by someone else, it is possible to work on oneself.
HEALTHLINE shows that if you press the hand valley point can be found in the firm skin between the thumb and index finger. Reflexologists claim that applying firm touch to this pressure point may help reduce stress, as well as alleviate migraines, toothaches, shoulder tension, and neck pain
Try having a go on yourself by pinching the finger tips and thumb of your right hand. The pressure applied to each finger should be firm, but make sure it is not painful. A few seconds for each single finger tip will be sufficient. Now do the same with the other hand. Check with your GP first if you are on medication.
