Ann’s NOTE: I learned the self-help method of holding one finger at a time within the five on the other hand. It can be VERY relaxing. There are seminars given around the country to learn to be a practitioner and treat others. I have taken 1 1/2 of these. When I had my first treatment from a provider, a very tight and uncomfortable spot in my left arm (affected with lymphedema, an effect of breast cancer surgery)was completely dissolved. Some months later the hammer toes I was born with, on my right foot, straightened out. UPDATE: many years later I stopped doing the exercises on a daily basis and now both feet have hammer toes? Coincidence?
