1. Palm Exercises

These are meant to stimulate the various acupuncture points surrounding the eye area. This will help relax the muscles around the eye.  Sit in front of a table so you can rest your elbows on the table. Rub your palms together so they become very warm, and then cup them over your eyes. Keep your eyes closed. Don’t out pressure on the eyeball, just cup your hands lightly over the eyes. Let your fingers rest gently on your forehead. Allow your hands to cool, and then repeat. Do this repeatedly for a period of about 3 minutes.
