Hold one of your hands with the other and place them on your thighs. Start stimulating the desired point.
If you experience pain during the massage, slowly and deeply inhale and exhale.

This type of massage relieves problems with breathing, swallowing, cough and congestion.
2. Throat pain
Stimulate the lower part of your thumb in order to soothe throat inflammation, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness and other difficulties.

Apply pressure to the joints of all the fingers. This will ease the pain in the muscles of the whole body and will relax you.
For additional effect, gently massage the skin between the toes. This way you will be able to encourage better function of lymph.
