Secret reflexology technique to relieve a sore throat

For a mildly sore throat reflexology techniques can be extremely useful in relieving pain.

For best results we recommend you do these techniques on the fingers, although they can be done on toes as well

Fingers and toes represent the entire head from the neck up, but fingers are much bigger than toes

Reflexology areas on the fingers are like reflexology areas on the toes zoomed in

By doing these techniques on the fingers we can more accurately reach the reflexology throat area

Do all of the following steps on the right hand,

then all the steps on the left hand

Step 1.


Water helps so so much! because it transports waste through your blood system

If you are feeling blocked up in the head water will help every reflexology technique be even more relaxing

1a. have a glass of water.

Step 2.

Rotate the joints

There are many bones in the skull, jaw and top of the neck especially- that surround a sore throat,

and they are all represented by the bones and joints in the fingers and toes.

This step of the reflexology headache relief technique sends energy, increased blood circulation and relaxation to all bones in the skull

2a if doing this to yourself (DIY) start by putting one hand palm down against your stomach

If you doing this to someone else have them put their hand palm down on a table or bench or any flat surface that is available.

2b hold thumb near the base joint (where thumb and hand connect) and rotate the thumb in a big slow gentle circle

Be sure to roll the joint in a full circle, one way and then the other way

This is a relaxing technique and should feel really nice! 

If you are doing this to yourself and you want extra oomph, really stretch the thumb joint gently pulling while you are slowly rolling the joint.

2c now hold onto the next joint up the thumb,

thumbs only have two joints so hold onto the thumb just above the second joint.

Gently twist the top of the thumb from side to side for about five seconds and then rotate in a circular motion for five seconds one way, then the other.

2d repeat on every finger on the hand.

Fingers have three joints so be sure to do

- full rotation of the base joint (that connects the finger to the hand)

- side to side gentle twisting and circular rotating of each top joint (middle bone joint, then top bone joint)

Step 3.

Squeeze the base of each thumb and forefinger

3a. use forefinger and thumb to squeeze all around the base section of the thumb for about 30 seconds

3b. repeat on forefinger 

3c. repeat on middle finger, index and little finger on that hand

Step 4.

Left hand

4a. do all the above steps onto the left hand

This whole reflexology technique will take about 10 minutes,

if only a little relief from your sore throat is felt after 10 minutes, continue for another 10 minutes (maximum of 20 minutes altogether)
