Mudra therapy is a non-medical mode of treatment which helps without harming. Mudras are various postures of fingers and thumbs. In mudra therapy, different diseases are treated by holding and retaining the fingers and the thumbs in different ways.

This simple measure surprisingly restores a state of balance(homeostasis) within the body and raises the level of the performer’s resistance . With the patient’s immunity thus strengthened, the disease has no other option but to flee.

  • Mudra therapy is advantageous in a number of ways:
  • It is very simple, perhaps the simplest among different non-medical therapies.
  • Mudras are quite easy to perform.
  • It is an extremely gentle form of treatment
  • It is entirely safe since no chemical medicines are employed
  • Mudra therapy is inexpensive because no instruments are required
  • It is a form of self-treatment.Any person who has acquired basic knowledge about mudras can treat most trivial ailments on his own
  • Mudra therapy has a preventive aspect, too.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               


Any person who analyzes and understands his temperament and his bodily constitution (on the basis given in Personality through health table ) can realize what ailments he is susceptible to and can , then regularly practice certain mudras to prevent those susceptibilities from manifesting in to overt illness.

Mudras enjoy a universal application. They can help all types of disorders ; Sub-acute, acute or chronic; they can help all type of people :young or old, men or women.

Mudra therapy can be advantageously combined with other forms of treatment: non-medical as well as medical. Being a part of Ayurveda, it goes especially well with Ayurvedic medicine.      
  Even after this much saying some you may say that “All this sounds too good to be true. does it really work. Or is it all in the mind ? Perhaps mudras help because the performer strongly believes that they will. With out the performer’s faith,mudras would fall flat on their faces”.
But some doctors and scientists never believe in such things but some tested and say this really work. So it upto You to decide whether it work or not. I can say this because as far I had find out and with my own experience with mudras I can say that 
Mudras help people who are entirely new to or unaware of, Mudra therapy and have never witnessed its efficacy to become ‘believers’.
Mudras help young children and even insane people, where the question o belief does not arise and Mudras even help semi-conscious or unconscious people (on whom Mudra therapy is carried put passively by using rubber bands to maintain thumbs and fingers in specific positions).
Even though mudras help in many disease there some where it has no role in the treatment of the following disorders

Purely mechanical disorders like mature cataract, a big hole in the eardrum, deviated nasal septum, cleft palate, hare lip, heart0valvular defects,varicose veins,hernias,big stones in the gall bladders/urinary tract, prolapsed uterus/rectum/inter vertebral disc, fracture, etc. These disorders will, obviously, need surgical intervention.Ailments caused by deficiencies of nutrients. vitamins, minerals, etc.Disorders that are a part and parcel of old age (senile degeneration).


Life threatening ailments like cancer, AIDS, encephalitis, diphtheria, heart failure, kidney failure, cirrhosis of the li
ve, septicaemaia, gangrene etc. These ailments cal for strong, extreme measures rather than gentle mudras.

So what I say that mudra therapy is an excellent key to try in the the lock of disease. More ofteh than not, it succeeds in opening up th lock . This key should, certainly, be tried when other keys(e.g modern medicines) have either failed or are undesirable / inapplicable. You may say that mudra therapy seems to simple to be really effective. So what I can say is in life, most important truths are , indeed , write simple!
