The blood must flow to the body’s extremities and return to the heart. Good blood flow to the hands and feet is vital as many peripheral nerves are here, and they receive and process various information. Hands and feet are usually the first contact points, and it is no surprise that there are a lot of nerves located here.

Moreover, these nerves are very sensitive; some people can detect the thickness of objects through their sensitive fingertips even more accurately than a metal detector.

As a rule, blood circulation at the body’s extremities is not very good. For example, the temperature of the fingertips is only 31 degrees, but after you massage your fingernails, the temperature will increase.

The same rule also applies to the feet. Many people have cold feet and need to wear socks to sleep. However, after nail massage therapy, their toes become warm, and they can sleep without socks.

Massaging your five fingers can help solve quite a few health problems.

If you have any of the following symptoms, it is best to rub the corresponding nail for 20 seconds.

  • Thumb: corresponds with the respiratory system and can improve coughs, rheumatism, and so on.
  • Forefinger: corresponds with the digestive system and can improve colitis and gastritis.
  • Middle: corresponds with the ear, and can effectively improve tinnitus.
  • Ring finger: stimulates the sympathetic nervous system, and can improve your immune system.
  • Little finger: corresponds with circulatory organs, and can benefit the heart, kidney, hypertension, diabetes, and, eye, etc.

Everyone’s situation is different; massage your nail until you feel successful.
