Folds in the skin are the main cause of hypertension and reduced blood circulation
The folds in your skin bend, compress and strangle the blood vessels and veins beneath them.
For people who suffer from blood circulation problems (such as hypertension, numbness or tingling sensations in the extremities, ...), medicine doctors tell them that atherosclerosis (blocked arteries) is responsible for their ailments.
Grooming proves them wrong and shows that folds in the skin are the main cause of blood circulation troubles.
In fact, atherosclerosis itself is mainly caused by the cutaneous folds.
Blood vessels folded by the skin
Folds in your skin crush the collapsible blood vessels
Blood vessels are fairly compressible.
Putting even the slightest pressure on your skin crushes them and reduces their flow.
But, what happens when the skin itself is causing the compression because it has become folded and clamped to what is beneath it?
It squeezes and flattens the tiny vessels.
HUMAN CIRCULATORY SYSTEM - WIKIPEDIA
The blood vessels are shielded in some areas, but they are exposed, compressible and bendable in many places.
Folds in the skin cause global and local constriction
The pressure applied by your skin on your cardiovascular system can affect it in two ways:
• Global constriction; causing high blood pressure or hypertension.
• Local constriction; causing numbness and tingling sensations.
As you age, your skin loses its elasticity.
It molds and takes the shape of what is beneath it.
The skin clinches and follows the contour of your blood vessels.
It hugs them so tightly that it puts some pressure on them.
When you do some movements or hold some positions, the skin crushes the vessels and their flow is diminished.
Ungroomed skin molds itself so perfectly to the underlying vessels that their flow is affected.
The skin of your body has developed large folds in many places, notably at each articulation.
These folds grow deeper all you life.
They cut into everything beneath them, including blood vessels.
When you do some movements or hold some positions, the fold crushes the vessels and their flow is diminished, even sometimes completely stopped.
The large folds put pressure on the flexible arteries and veins that pass beneath them.
Circulatory problems caused by cutaneous folds
The blockages occur where the arteries are bent by skin folds
Atherosclerosis is the number one cause of death and disability in the developed world.
Atherosclerosis is medical condition where the inside of the arteries narrows because of a plaque build-up.
There are no known causes for this disease.
Grooming proves that cutaneous folds have the same effect.
They crush, compress and narrow the flow of the arteries that they cross.
The skin bends, compresses and flattens the arteries.
The arteries get badly battered and crumpled when they pass through some areas of your body, mostly the joints.
Your repeated moves and the positions you hold create deep folds in your skin.
The constriction that the folds apply deforms the arteries, cuts their flow and creates the proper conditions for plaque to build-up.
Doctors try to open up these vessels internally, but the problem could also be cured by grooming the skin of the affected area.
High blood pressure
Your skin's pressure on your vessels can lead to hypertension
You know that tight clothes can cut your blood circulation, but what about tight skin?
Capillaries are the tiniest blood vessels on your body.
Their diameter is similar to the width of a strand of spider web silk.
Capillaries not only drench the dermis, they climb up to the epidermis.
The veins that supply them with blood pass just beneath the skin.
All these vessels are easily crushed when you press on your skin, but their flow returns to normal as soon as they are freed.
However, when the skin of your whole body is clinging and clamping on your circulatory system; your blood pressure goes up.

The circulatory system is under pressure from the skin itself.
Your skin has lost some of its elasticity because you've never groomed it.
It clings so tightly to your circulatory system that it increases your internal pressure.
You can feel the pressure that the band puts on your arm.
Ironically, your skin does the same on your whole system.
As you grow older, all your folds deepen.
They put more and more pressure on your aging blood vessels.
Every time your heart beats, its efforts to pump out the blood are constrained by the pressure the skin applies on the circulatory system.
This mostly affects the systolic pressure.
Numbness and tingling
When your arms or legs fall asleep
You lose some pressure when you step on a watering hose.
We all undergo the discomfort of waking up with a dead member because our sleeping position has cut the blood flow to that part of our body.
This can also happen when you're sitting (possibly with your legs crossed) or standing.
You feel some numbness at first, but as the blood rushes back to the region, you experience a tingling pins-and-needles sensation that slowly fades away.
This phenomenon is called paresthesia and it is happens when there isn't enough blood to supply the nerves.
The pins-and-needles sensation appears when the blood returns to the regions where the circulation has been cut.
The folds in your skin have the same constricting effect on your circulatory system.
All your articulations are surrounded by pleated skin with large folds that dig deep into what is beneath them.
The blood vessels that pass though these joints get bent, twisted, compressed and pinched.
Their flow is greatly reduced.
Folds in the skin isolate and leave entire regions behind.
Holding a position for hours or doing the same movement repeatedly only compounds the situation.
For example, the flow in the carotid arteries, supplying oxygenated blood to the brain, can be significantly reduced by keeping your head turned for even short periods.
THE CAROTID ARTERIES
The folds bend and crush everything on their passage,
including nerves and vessels,
decreasing, and sometimes blocking, the blood flow.
When the flow to the arms and legs is reduced or stopped, we experience the effects of paresthesia; numbness and the pins-and-needles effect.
However, when the flow to the head is affected, several other phenomenons can occur including dizziness, nausea, short-breath and headaches.
When the blood can't reach your head and brain, undesirable effects can take place.
Folds in the skin block the flow in the veins
Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.
Once again, scientists have no idea what causes varicose veins.
They say heredity, pregnancy, obesity, menopause, aging, prolonged standing, leg injury and abdominal straining can play a role.
What a joke!
Obviously, these people haven't pressed their fingers and nails into the affected skin or they would have found out that the skin is folded all over.

The blockages mostly occur at fold crossings and can be freed by using pressure grooming techniques.
The veins aren't blocked because of faulty valves.
They are mechanically crushed by the folds in the skin itself.
You wont see most of those folds; the are epidermis over epidermis.
However, you can feel them easily with your nails and fingertips.
You're looking for the places where the obstructions have taken place.
Those are fold crossings and they can be very small.
At those points, the skin has pushed in deeply creating a hole, a small crater of tough, compacted cells.
The only way to get rid of those blockages is to crush those hardened elements away with your nail.
Muscle cramps do no exist; they are skin cramps
TOTALLY FALSE INFORMATION
A cramp is a sudden, involuntary muscle contraction.
This is a complete shame.
Cramps aren't caused by muscle contractions; they are caused by skin fold contractions.
You can't study these phenomenons with microscopes.
This only proves that no one on earth has ever put their nail on the cramps.
When you press your nail on the place where you feel the cramp, you find a fold crossing.
Simply grooming the skin with pressure strokes eliminates the cramp.
Muscles can't feel much and are incapable of producing the intense pain you experience when you suffer from a cramp.
The pain comes from the skin.
Cramp locations are simply huge fold crossing locations.
The reasons for the appearance of the cramp are possibly more related to blood flow than to the muscles themselves.
Blood clots occur where the skin is folded
A thrombus is an aggregation of platelets and red blood cells that form a plug in veins or arteries.
Platelets are a component of blood that reacts to blood vessel injury by clumping.
This is a normal response aimed at protecting the tissue, it only becomes a problem when the clots block the blood flow.
This internal process is very similar to the formation of coats of epidermis by your skin to protect itself from repeated folding externally.
The blood vessels get repeatedly folded along with the skin when you move or hold a position.
At the point of folding, the vessels get badly crushed and mangled.
This could lead to injury, so the blood vessels thicken their walls.
I am convinced that blood clots occur mostly where cutaneous folds intersect the blood vessels.
At the places where the skin bends and crumples the blood vessels.
Swelling and bloating increase the tension
Swelling of the body's skin occurs frequently even in healthy people.
It's an accumulation of fluid in the tissues that is greater than normal.
It can be generalized or only some areas can be affected.
Swelling can have numerous causes including fatigue, anxiety, an upset stomach, high blood pressure, PMS, pregnancy, œdema, ...
However, the swelling has many side-effects, mainly on the skin.
The swelling increases the pain you feel from fold crossings.
When the swelling occurs, the skin gets unusually stretched.
This creates extra tension at the places where the skin is attached to what is beneath it; like at folds crossings.
The fold crossings become painful, or more painful than usual, because of the extra tightness.
This explains why your symptoms may be much worse on days when your skin is swollen.
How to restore the blood circulation
Free your circulatory system from the pressures of your skin
Grooming your skin can bring back normal blood flow to areas where the circulatory problems listed above have reduced or stopped it.
You will have to use both grooming techniques:
• Superficial grooming; to restore the elasticity of the skin of parts of the body.
• Pressure grooming; to free the skin precisely where the blockages occur.
An introduction to human grooming
Human grooming lets you use your nails and fingertips to unfold your skin and free your blood vessels.
The following video will get you started:
Reestablish the irrigation of large areas
Superficial grooming techniques can help in situations where the whole skin, and not specific points, puts pressure on your blood vessels.
This can be the case mostly for high blood pressure and atherosclerosis problems.
The skin of the affected regions, or the whole body, has probably formed a thick cover composed of several coats of epidermis cells.
This coating hardens the skin and diminishes its flexibility.
With time, this external layer can hug and put continuous pressure on the circulatory system.
Removing this crust, and liberating your skin, with your nails will reduce the pressure.
Find and free the blockages with your nails and fingertips
Pressure grooming techniques can be very effective with many circulatory problems.
Since the folds and their crossings physically hamper the blood flow, opening up the folds with your nails removes their hold.
Superficial grooming should not represent more than 10% of your grooming activities, so the bulk of your efforts is made with pressure grooming.
As with pain or nervous troubles, you have to do some detective work to find out where the blockages are located.
But, unlike pain or nerves, blood vessels don't produce any feeling or clue that you are actually freeing them.
So, you have to work logically and go by trial and error.
Don't forget that the blood that goes out of the heart flows through the entire body and back, contrarily to the nerves who go to the head and back.
Check out the main hurdles your blood encounters on its route: shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, .. articulations.
Some vessels can even be followed visually and in some cases, such as varicose veins, you can even pin-point the exact location of the blockage.
Use every bit of information and your intuition to locate the problems.
Peck the skin at these points repeatedly with pressure strokes, but the whole area would benefit from pressure grooming.
Apply pressure strokes repeatedly on the suspected blockage points.
Be careful, go slowly and test-groom every area you work on.
Plan your grooming work over months, rather than days.
Don't forget that grooming the skin has many other benefits; such as removing pain and restoring beauty.
