Pulses in the Shower

Majid Ali, M.D.

Do arteries of everyone respond the same way? Of course, they do not. In this tutorial, I offer suggestions for those whose pulses do not respond initially.

Fingertips to Fingertips Pulses

I focus on the fingertips during early training in autoreg for a simple reason. Fingertips contain the richest supply of sympathetic nerve fibers. It is easy to see the wisdom of Nature in this. We use our fingertips for more functions than any other body organ. It also means that the walls of arteries in our fingertips have the tightest reins on them from the vasomotor center in the brain. It also explains why our fingers and hands are the first body organs to feel cold when we are stressed or become depressed.

There is yet another simple method that many of my patients found to be very useful during early training. This method is especially valuable for those who do succeed in getting the pulses when training with a professional but are unable to get them on their own.

In this method, I ask my patients to hold their hands together in their laps with the fingertips of one hand touching the fingertips of the other. Juxtaposition of the fingertips assists in the perception of the pulses. Again, once a person succeeds in getting the pulses, he should separate his two hands to see if he can sustain the pulses when his fingertips are not touching.

Children learn autoregulation fast. They can be quickly taught to ease up on these autonomic reins on their arteries and let the pulses flow freely.

Pulses in the Wash Basin

I wrote earlier that a vast majority of patients in my autoregulation class learn the method of directed pulses during the very first training session. It was different when I began teaching autoregulation to my patients over ten years ago. At that time, many patients were frustrated by their inability to perceive any energy in their tissues with autoregulation. This was quite common among very ill patients. Even when some of them felt the pulses during my autoregulation class, they were unable to perceive or sustain pulses later when they tried the method on their own. It didn't take long before their angst became my frustration. I began to think of ways that I could help such patients overcome their systemic resistance.

The answer to the riddle became obvious one day in my laboratory when a woman in her mid-eighties related her experience. She had patiently sat through the training session for more than two hours without perceiving any energy in her hands as other patients in the class related their positive experiences. After the last autoregulation exercise, suddenly her face beamed with excitement as she loudly proclaimed that finally she had felt the pulses. Then she added, "I guess it happened now because my hands have been slowly and steadily warming during the class, even though I didn't feel clear pulses."

Like a flash, her comment gave me the idea of using warm water for the initial warming of hands, before beginning autoregulation. The next question was simple and predictable: What would be the simplest and most convenient way to warm hands?

In the method of pulses in the washbasin, a person dips both hands in a washbasin full of lukewarm water for five to ten minutes. When the temperature of the hands and fingers rises to that of the warm water, the person takes his hands out of the washbasin, dries them and begins autoregulation.

I have now validated the clinical efficacy of this method with extensive experience. Most patients who report initial difficulties with autoregulation find this method very useful in breaking the initial systemic resistance.

Pulses in the washbasin may be tried in a kitchen or bathroom sink or in a warm-water bathtub.

Pulses in the Shower

As I stated earlier, pulses in the shower is another method I tried—and found to be very effective—during my early years of research with autoregulation. I experimented with this method before I thought of using warm water in a washbasin for overcoming initial systemic resistance. This was an important discovery for me—a powerful demonstration of the phenomena of energy in self-regulation work. I moved on to the method of pulses in the washbasin for some important reasons, which I describe later in this section.

I strongly caution chronically ill persons against this exercise. Specifically, those with high blood pressure and heart disease must not attempt this method. Furthermore, all readers must read about the three cautions given on the following pages before trying this simple method.

Persons in robust health may try this method as follows: After a relaxing bath or shower, dry yourself with a towel. Stand upright and still for a few moments. Keep your back and neck straight and loose. Now move your shoulders a little and feel your arms literally hang loose from your shoulders. Shift your awareness to your hands. (Do not try to focus or concentrate on your hands or on anything. Also, do not try to unfocus, since that is also a cortical trap.) Simply be aware of your hands, keeping them limp and loose. Now repeat to yourself seven times each of the following five sentences:

- My hands are heavy and warm.

- My hands are heavy and warm and limp and loose.

- My fingertips are tingling.

- My fingertips are throbbing.

- My fingertips are pulsating.

At the end of this simple exercise, in all likelihood your hands will feel heavy like lead and very comfortable. You will probably also feel clear and strong pulses in most, if not all, ten fingertips. On rare occasions, extremely ill patients have told me they did not succeed in feeling the pulses with their first attempt. Such people require more than one trial.

After you have succeeded in getting the pulses, you may continue this exercise for as long as you wish. If you lose the pulses, you can easily bring them back by repeating the same sentences.

When Not to Do Pulses in the Shower

For emphasis, I reiterate that the method of pulses in the shower should not be tried under certain circumstances. There are three important considerations.

First,

Read the paragraphs on cortical braking on the previous pages. You may be surprised or even overwhelmed by the way tissues respond. Pulses are an element of self-discovery and it is a very pleasant surprise. Still, it is necessary to be prepared to receive the response from your tissues.

Second,

If you are under treatment by your physician for a specific disease, please check with him or her. It may be necessary to practice the initial training under professional supervision. Autoregulation is regulating yourself. But in the midst of an established illness, it is necessary to be cautious.

Third,

There are other more suitable methods for ill patients to begin practicing autoregulation methods. One good alternative is pulses in the washbasin.

When Not to Do Pulses Anywhere

Directed pulses are a simple, safe, and useful method for stress control and for increasing the blood supply (and healing energy) to any part of the body. In general, one cannot overdo the pulses. I have taught this technique to a very large number of patients. There are, however, a few situations where it is best to avoid directing pulses to some part of the body.

1. The pain in acutely inflamed tissues may be intensified with the dilatation of blood vessels brought about with pulses. The same holds for acute abscesses where the pulses may precipitate throbbing pain.

2. Congestion in the nose and sinuses is usually made worse with the pulses.

3. An established severe headache is generally made worse with this method. The pulses are useful for dissolving headaches, but only during the initial period.

4. While internal wounds heal, dilated vessels carry the risk of internal bleeding. A patient underwent prostatectomy. The wound in his bladder stopped bleeding in two days. He was very proficient in the method of the pulses. On the third day, without consulting with me, he tried it on his own to facilitate wound healing by sending the pulses to his gland. Within an hour, the wound started bleeding. He called me for advice. I told him not to do the pulses. He stopped, and within a few hours, the bleeding stopped.
