    Apan Vayu Mudra – first aid for heart attacks?

    Hand mudras* are easy to do lying down, sitting, standing or walking, and can be very effective. Here is one that is also known as The Lifesaver because of its ability to ward off a heart attack, according to the Indian mudra researcher Keshav Dev. It is also useful for general healing and strengthening of the heart.

    Touch the ball of your thumb with your index finger. At the same time, let the middle and ring finger tips touch the tip of the thumb. Extend the little finger. Do this with each hand and hold as needed to feel the effect, or practice three times a day for 15 minutes. 
    Numbness in the little finger can be a sign of onset of a heart attack. This mudra will help stimulate qi to flow along the heart meridian, which begins in the little finger, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
    *more info on mudras can be found in earlier posts by doing a key word search ”mudra”
