Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

Ep. 11

Deborah Myers is the founder of Health at Your Fingertip. She graduated as a certified acupressurist from the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, California. She then pursued training under well-respected Jyutsu masters, and you’ll soon see how she’s committed to share what she has learned to help you.

Deborah shares how to use these fingertips we’ve come equipped with to connect with our energy and help it move us to calmness, clarity and all those other states we love.

Learn that a simple self-hug helps lungs, breath, heart and—how that gives a message to your body that you are taking care of it. When you give yourself love and compassion, that’s what it will give back to you!

Acupressure de-stresses and re-patterns your body so it doesn’t automatically jump to the stress response unnecessarily. Yes, please.

Are your kids listening? Invite them to follow along!
