Try this: Using the longest finger of either hand, place it between your eyebrows and stroke up five or ten times, just past your hairline. Then, add the longest finger on the other hand, and do five or ten more. After each set of five or ten, add fingers, repeat the motion, and move slowly out toward your temples. When you reach your temples, it will likely feel especially good because there’s a lymph node there, and you are moving lymphatic fluid toward it to be cleansed, so you can detox.
Once you’ve reached your temples the first time, you can work your way back to the middle or simply begin the process again, until you’ve done it several times. It will only take a minute or two. When you feel you’ve had enough, stop and notice how nice it feels.
Often, the faces we make in response to stressful situations cause us to tense the muscles in our foreheads without even realizing it. So, doing this quick, easy massage can be remarkably helpful in relaxing us once again.
As a side benefit, if you do it frequently enough, it will help to smooth out your forehead, so any wrinkles are less noticeable.
In the beginning, you may find it’s difficult to hold your hands up like that for long periods of time. That’s fine. You don’t have to do it for very long for it to be effective.
