IT’S NOT ARTHRITIS! YOUR SKIN IS FOLDED.
The skin that covers your joints has been mistreated and abused.
Every time you bend your articulations, it gets stretched on one side and compressed on the other.
With time, the skin hardens, and deep permanent folds are formed.
The skin gets pulled into the articulation so tightly, that pain occurs when you activate it.
FOLD CROSSINGS AND PAIN
When you place your nail on the spot where the pain originates; you’ll find out that the skin is damaged.
You’ll discover some type of skin defect: a hole, a depression, a fold, or a hardened bump, that often can’t be seen.
That’s a fold crossing; the intersection between two cutaneous folds.
The skin becomes so tense in some fold crossings, even if they’re small, that acute pain is produced.
Since you can reach it so easily with your nail; it becomes obvious that the pain comes from the skin itself, not from what is beneath.
KNEADING THE SKIN WITH YOUR NAILS
The only way to remove the hardness and tension in the skin, and restore its flexibility, is to knead it repeatedly with your nails.
The basic gestures are called “pressure strokes”, and they’re very easy to perform.
Place one or several nails on the skin of an aching region and apply pressure for a few seconds.
Release the pressure and repeat the procedure.
It’s that simple.
In some places, you may have to maintain the pressure for several seconds.
For delicate or small painful spots; use only one finger; the one you think will do the best job.
In larger areas; you can group up to four fingers together, to get things done faster.
For your work to be effective, the pressure you apply must be strong enough to crush the structure of the skin defects.
HOW IT WORKS
Each fold binds the skin like a permanent rope, but their crossings act like stakes that firmly attach the skin to what is beneath it.
Once it’s anchored, any movement you make, pulls on the skin, and creates pain.
Applying pressure on the crossing opens up the folds, and decreases the tension; thus reducing the pain.
But, over time, the crossing can be completely flattened; and the pain eliminated.
You want to crush every hardened element you encounter in your skin.
When the pain comes from one particular spot, try to find the exact place and apply pressure on it repeatedly with your nail.
If the pain originates from larger regions; plow the entire surface regularly with your nails to soften and revive the skin, while insisting on the most painful areas.
ONLY YOUR SKIN CAN HURT THAT WAY
There is a common misconception about pain.
People think that their articulations are damaged; and that’s what’s causing their pain.
In fact, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments can’t hurt; they have very few pain receptors.
Your skin, on the other hand, is packed with nociceptors.
Only your skin can produce the acute pain you feel.
Once you locate your pain in the folds of your skin; you stop worrying about its origins.
However, you won’t rehabilitate your skin in only a few hours of effort.
Try working several times a day, but for short periods.
With time, your skin will rejuvenate and regain its suppleness, and your pain will be gone.
Take the habit of reacting to any pain you feel by immediately applying pressure on the aching location with your nail.
If you hurt yourself or if you strike blood; simply let it heal and revise your technique.
Always keep your body and members as straight as you can.
Protect the skin of your hands and feet by wearing gloves, and comfy socks and shoes.
