After reading Mildred Carter’s book on “Hand Reflexology: Key to Perfect Health”, in which she uses reflex clamps to clamp one’s finger tips and in between the fingers, as a form of self-reflexology, I started to do the same. However, in place of the ‘reflex clamps’, I use the humble plastic clothes pegs.
I carry the clothes pegs everywhere with me and whenever I have idle hands for a few minutes, I clip them on my finger tips, ensuring that the cushiony pads of the fingers are included.
For my knuckles, I use clothes pegs too, but the ones with the bulging curved ends, that fit easily around the fingers or knuckles.
When I started working on my fingers with these clothes pegs, I could only take them 1-2 minutes at a time, but after repeated use, I am able to leave them on for up to 10-15 minutes per session.
Soon after using the pegs a few times, I began to notice small improvements to my overall health. I believe the results of constant use will turn out differently for each individual.
When the finger tips are pegged for a few minutes at a time, the circulation in one’s system is activated and if one reads about reflexology, it explains the details more clearly.

On a closing note, please remember that this is what I do regularly and it is working well in my favour. However, if anyone is uncertain, it is best to first consult with your doctor before trying anything new.
Until the next time, Amen.
