Everybody knows that massage is a valuable tool for good health right? What about massaging the brain for mental health? Over the years it has dawned upon me that the mind needs to be massaged just like the rest of the body. (Yes, the organs also need massage.)
How to massage the brain…
Whenever we get an area of our body that becomes stagnated, our energy meridians (acupressure lines) do not flow well. There are certain points along these lines that then become very sore (acupressure points). Someone trained in acupressure can easily feel their own bad spots. Even a novice can learn quickly.
The brain, like many other parts of the body, is covered by bone (the skull). Obviously you cannot just massage the brain like you can a muscle. Not true… With tapotement, one of the five Swedish massage “strokes”, you can massage the brain. Tapotement or percussion is just that – tapping. Use the tips of your fingers to tap on your head. Start on the forehead. Do you feel any areas that are more sore than others? These are the acupoints that need the most attention! Keep tapping all over the head and learn where you have sore spots. Also, you can tap as hard as you want to. The harder you tap, the deeper and stronger the vibration is that you are sending into the brain.
It is my theory that this simple technique has the ability to help everyone to have better mental health. There’s just one catch though. You have to tap on your own head. Nobody’s going to do it for you! This is how life works. You are in control of your entire existence! So, there you have it! Tap on your head on the sore spots and keep doing it every day for 10-20 minutes until the soreness is gone.
Peace and good health…naturally…without drugs,
