21 day clean, purge, balance
28 March 2020 Day 2 (Clean 2) – Self-care: Cleaning health tips
Welcome to Day 2 (Clean 2), the body thrives with a full body Abhayanga or self-massage every morning. The process of messaging yourself stimulates the skin, blood vessels, tissues, lymphatic system, and invisible anatomy channels (meridians or nadi’s). It continues the body’s detoxification and cleansing both internally and through the skin itself. It also wakes up the whole body and mind gently stimulating organs and senses to a joyful or even blissful state.
How to do a self massage: take a small amount of oil (if you know your Ayurvedic type use sesame for Vata, coconut oil for Pitta, and Olive or do dry skin brushing for Kapha) and rub briskly into the scalp and rub along the crown from front to back and front, the back of head, the back neck area, and along the perimeter of the crown. Continue on the face with more above the eyes along the sides of the eyes and down to ears and front of neck, along the sides of the nose draining the sinuses, and around the mouth. With more oil continue down each shoulder and arm moving lengthwise on the muscles and circular around the joints, work the palm and the webs between the fingers. Proceed to the chest and go circular around the breasts massaging deeply, under the armpit stimulate and knead the lymphatic’s, continue down the sides, and then work the belly and diaphragm in a circular motion releasing tension and emotion. From here continue down the front and back of the pelvis and massage the buttocks and genital regions well. Continue down each leg like you did for the arms and generously massage each ankle and work the bottom of the foot where a mini-map of all organs resides and are stimulated with massage. Be sure to press deeply between the toes and stimulate the webs. Finish your massage by holding the having-ness (or receiving) gate four fingers below the left palm by squeezing it with the right thumbs on the veins and the right fingers on the outer arm. Squeeze and hold while doing three deep complete breaths. Relax and enjoy. Please note this should flow from one section to the next relatively quickly and takes about 5 minutes total.
Try this for 21 days to see the effects first hand.
Take Away (Clean 2): Joy start your body and lymphatic’s with a self massage each morning.
Enjoy your Cleanse,
