This application is taught in Touch For Health level 1.
This technique is also used as a Self-Help application.
When we are ‘overwhelmed’ by life, we naturally put our head into our hands. This is the body’s own way of reducing the stress we are experiencing. You can do this on yourself or others:
This technique requires a light touch on the frontal eminences, the bumps on the forehead, above the eyes, between the eyebrows and the hairline. The light touch on this reflex point has a harmonising effect on the energy of the forebrain where new options and ideas are processed.
Lightly place your finger tips onto your forehead – and think about the issue, i.e. the emotional or troubling situation that is causing you stress. Touch encourages the ‘body’s circulation’ to flow to the front of the brain – away from the ‘fight/flight/freeze/flock area of the brain. The brain can be creative and think of new solutions without emotion being involved.
You or the person may experience a release of emotions, such as tears, deeper breathing or a shudder/movement in the body. You/they may talk about ‘overwhelm’ re an issue in the past, present or future.
This application is very safe to use, and maybe applied frequently as required., i.e. before an interview, an exam, when overwhelmed, mental block, confrontations, nervous anxiety, accidents, trauma.
