3. Pinching down at webs
Place the left hand in your lap and with the finger and thumb of the right hand pinch down at the webs between the fingers quite firmly. Breathe out one – and – two – and – three – and – as you do so. Repeat five times, then repeat with the other hand. /
4. Finger squeeze
a. Enclose, in turn, the thumb and fingers of the left hand in the clenched right hand. Squeeze hard and gently pull (not with arthritic hands). Repeat until each finger of the left hand has had its squeeze, and keep with the feeling of tension in the active right hand as you do so.
c. Shake the tension out again and reinforce the memory of relaxation as you do so.
