With your fingertips tap the top of your head.

Slowly work your way all around the head, covering the sides, front and back. This exercise will wake up your brain and stimulate blood circulation.

Pull your fingers through your hair, this stimulates the bladder and gall bladder meridians on the top and side. (This is also great to do in the shower when massaging shampoo and conditioner through your hair, imagine you’re at a salon and give yourself a good head massage).

Place your fingers on your forehead, and apply a little pressure and stroke out from the centre to the temples.

Bring your fingers up to your temples. Drop your elbows, and massage your temples, using circular movements.

Massage down the side of your face until you reach your jaw.

Squeeze along jaw bone, working outwards from the centre. This is a very good technique for trying to relax.

Using your index finger and thumb, squeeze your eyebrows starting from the centre line and move slowly and laterally.

With your index finger and thumb, pinch the bridge of your nose and corners of your eyes.

Apply your thumbs to the sides of your nose. Breathe in as you stroke down the side of your nose.

The above routine is particularly good if you feel a cold coming on, or have one already. Although Doln exercises are specifically designed for self-help, the can just as easily be carried out on another person. The above routine will ease discomfort and speed recovery.
