The technique is suited great for not only children but also adults!

How should you perform “smart massage?”

Fritz Auglin, a child psychologist from Switzerland, developed this amazing technique and repeatedly applied it in his practice. He argues that external impulses can affect the cerebral cortex in a very positive way.

A group of children aged 7-15 years suffering from MBD (Minimal Brain Dysfunction) had been undergoing this massage for 8 months. 3 weeks into it, 98% of the test subjects showed increased brain activity and began to show various interests. Children began to learn better at school and show leadership skills.

Auglin recommends performing this massage from birth. First, it should be introduced like a game by either of the parents. After that, older kids can perform these simple exercises on their own.

Auglin’s “smart massage”

Perform each exercise by slowly counting to 10.

Leading speech therapists have adapted Auglin’s massage and described detailed instructions that can be understood even by children:

  1. Hold the child’s earlobes; pull them down. Hold the tops of the ears; pull them up. Hold the middle of the ears; pull them forward, back, and to the side.
  2. With the index and middle fingers of both hands, simultaneously “draw” circles (massage with circular movements) along the contour of the cheeks.
  3. “Draw” circles along the contour of the forehead and chin with the index and middle fingers. Your movement should be performed with both hands at the same time but in opposite directions.
  4. “Draw” glasses around the eyes with the index and middle fingers (eyes should be open). The fingers’ movement should follow from the medial ends of the eyebrows through the sockets to the inner corners of the eyes.
  5. Press the pads of both index fingers firmly on each of the sets of points (as in the picture below).

After the main massage, you can perform an additional optional exercise: Open the mouth and lower the jaw to perform several sharp movements from right to left and vice versa.

Children are delighted with these simple exercises and don’t get tired at all, because it takes only 10 minutes a day.
