How Does Mudra Therapy Works?

Because of the fact that Mudras work on the nerves, Mudra Therapy is considered a neural science.  The fingertips of every living being have many concentrated nerve root endings which are free energy discharge points. Science also confirms that around every tip there is a concentration of free electrons which may be manipulated to bring the body into an energetic balance which may improve health (Vijay K. Bansal, “What are Mudras? How do we define them?”).

Mudra Philosophy

In Mudra Philosophy, It is believed that the five fingers correspond to the five basic elements (Fire, air, ether, earth, and water).  By the touching together of the tips of the fingers, free energy is redirected back into the body along specified channels and back up to the brain. This results in the body being brought into an energy balance that fosters healing and sustained Health.



Mudra Hand Poses

There are 28 to 32 root Mudras which are utilized to form different poses to affect different areas.  Below are 4 poses and the corresponding areas that are improved. Most poses should be done daily for at least 15 minutes to support health and up to 40 minutes if there is an illness being addressed. This Therapy can (supplement) any treatment that is already in place. It is recommended to allow 3 months to show any marked improvement or changes.

Mudra Therapy is a non-medicinal yet effective therapy that uses the bodies own bio-energy to heal or sustain health. There is no cost, no risk of side effects, and is very time effective as most poses can be done from as little as 15 to 40 minutes a day. Mudra Therapy is a Neuroscience which is not belief based. Therefore, no “belief” is required.
