Do you ever find yourself subconsciously tapping your fingers– rat-tat-tat!– when you’re nervous, bored, or just out of habit?
As it turns out, all you need to do is redirect that habit towards specific pressure points along your body, and your tapping patterns could actually dampen your nervousness levels! According to Prevention magazine, “tapping” is also considered the Emotional Freedom Technique, which is an ancient treatment technique that combines Chinese acupressure with conventional psychology.
Even though it isn’t broadly accepted (or even heard of, for that matter) here in the United States, experts have already found that tapping leads to lower cortisol levels in your body, because it sends a relaxing signal to your amygdala, which is the region of the brain responsible for your fight-or-flight response.
Some of the best spots for you to tap away on include the pressure points sitting between your eyebrows and on your chin.
But that’s not the only thing that can help lower your stress levels– in fact, did you know that the effects of chiropractic care could lead to relaxation?
It’s true: aside from the fact that chiropractic has been associated with symptom relief of problems as mundane as acute muscle soreness, and as serious as Parkinson’s disease, it’s also often implicated with superior management of various other health discomforts like ADHD symptoms, back and neck pain, and even– you guessed it– stress relief!
Fortunately, the rest of the modern medical world seems to finally be taking note of this holistic alternative therapy, as much is being made about chiropractic care’s numerous long-term health and wellness benefits across the medical spectrum.
