May Self-care Promo: Shirodhara

This month’s self-care promo, Shirodhara, is both grounding and luxurious. Shiro in Sanskrit means head, and Dhara means flow. This treatment begins with gentle massage of your hands and feet, then warm oil is poured over your forehead and scalp. Most people deeply relax and fall asleep during their session.

Wishing a Happy Spring!

Mudra: Make A Fist, Heal Your Emotions

Mushti MudraMudra is a Sanskrit term for gesture, mark or seal and is used in yoga, meditation and other types of healing.

There are numerous mudras, each with a specific purpose and benefit.  As a perpetual student of Eastern Medicine and energy healing, I feel its important to reference the similarities of these sciences.

In Chinese medicine, the hand is one of many microsystems or fractals in our body with acupuncture points (Marma points in the Ayurvedic system).  Mudras, acupuncture, and massage therapy activate the energy in these points.  In both systems, the palmar surface of the hand contains the internal organ points, and relates to the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the organ.

The Mushti Mudra, pictured above, heals our restrained emotions and digestion.  Anger and frustration are connected to the liver; grief and letting go are connected to the lungs and large intestine.

We all know being upset stagnates our digestion.  Often we will try to soothe our feelings by either not eating or overeating; both responses make the problem worse.  When we make a fist, the Mushti Mudra activates these points and starts the healing process in both your mind and body.  Essentially you are telling your brain to wring out your emotions and your gut.

 

Next time you feel upset, try this easy Mushti Mudra:

 

  1. Inhale and make a fist, squeezing your thumb over your fingers
  2. Exhale and let your fist relax open.

 

As you inhale and exhale notice the sensation of your breath through your body, and how your body feels afterward.  Also note if you felt the emotional or the physical discomfort first.  This will help you get in tune with and heal your body.

I like to start with both hands at the same time, then alternate between left and right one at a time, and then back to both hands together.

I’d love to hear how this mudra works for you.  Send me an email if you have questions or would like to share your experience.
