Definition: “Mudra” is a Sanskrit word whose English translation is “seal.” In Taoist practice, the term most commonly refers to specific movements and/or shapes created by the hands and fingers. As such, mudras can be thought of as a kind of “finger yoga” or “finger qigong.”
Mudra’s have been used in the East for thousands of years, particularly in the Buddhism. They’ve been used as a spiritual practice and still are, as the way on the path to enlightenment.
The mudra that can help Headaches and Migraines is called “Mahasirs Mudra”. Pronunciation: Ma-Ha-Sirs. It can also be practiced for sinus issues, to balance your energy, congestion.
Hold the mudra position with your fingers for a few minutes.
