The 15 minute therapy
Be careful to do these steps correctly and protect your skin from your nails which are pressing the pressure points
Guide:- Pressure points are marked with "Pink Star" in the images below .
Step 1: Cleanse your skin and hands: Sanitize your hands and remove all the makeup and creams from the skin. Best time to do is at night when you are relaxed and it will also help you sleep better.
Step 2: Stimulate the Pituitary gland (Master of all glands): Warm up your hands by rubbing and apply gentle pressure on the little T space where bridge of the nose meets center forehead between the eyes.
Do this massage for 5 mins with your thumbs/lower palm gently.
Step 2: Stimulate the Thyroid gland (Adds glow to the skin): Warm up your hands by rubbing and apply gentle pressure on the area below your ear lobe and behind your jaw bone. This helps to balance the thyroid gland which rejuvenates the skin by improving blood circulation and clears blockages.
