Soothing & calming the mind can be helpful when we are triggered by stories, rumination, strong emotions, or agitation. The gentle touch of the palms against the forehead can invite the flow of blood into this area of the body. When there is gentle pressure here and the eyes are closed this can be an invitation to rest the head and take a break from the constant doing mode to being still, warm dark, and quiet. When we are agitated the eyes can sometimes flick, so placing warm hands over the eyes can bring some ease to the face. Feel free to use a cushion or pillow on the table for more support so there is no pulling or strain in the lower back.
