Each of us has to experiment with different symptom management tools to discover not only what helps, but which ones we are willing to do. If you have any health problems or concerns, talk to your doctor before starting any new exercise.
This daily exercise is said to soften, strengthen, and awaken the lower abdominal area, increasing our sense of confidence and well being. Belly drumming is believed to neutralize the effects of over-thinking, to cool and balance the autonomic nervous system.
Energy can easily stagnate in our belly, especially if we eat poorly or consume too much, and the food does not digest properly. We might experience constipation, bloating, and as toxins build up we might notice fatigue, headaches, or skin problems. Belly drumming helps by restoring regular intestinal movement, or peristalsis.
The toe tapping exercise calms the mind and relaxes the body. Because it stimulates acupressure points in the feet that have connections throughout our system, the entire body is left refreshed. Toe tapping is particularly good at relieving tension, insomnia, headaches, and fatigue.
Individuals with stiff joints or poor energy circulation may find this exercise difficult at first. Some people experience burning sensations as stagnant energy is freed. If the effort becomes too uncomfortable, do it more slowly until your body acclimates to the exercise.
