Palming: our hands’ natural healing powers

posted in: Blog, Qigong, Uncategorized, Vision | 1

It’s 5pm when I get home. I lie down, and cover my eyes with the concave curvature of my palms. A perfect fit, screening out all bits of light. It’s like they were meant to fit there. I feel not only warmth and relaxation but an energetic healing vibration. Five minutes, or sometimes 30 minutes later, I release my hands and allow my eyes to receive the world. I see sharper – there is no doubt.

As a long time student of the natural sciences, I wondered if “biomedicine” holds a name for this. Turns out, yes. Humans are natural emitters of infrared and hands emit relatively more infrared than other parts of the body. You can find machines and saunas that emit infrared or simply use your hands!

Science offers little, unless tested over and over again…so go try it yourself!!
