With fingers flat, stroke up the sternum, around the top of the chest, out to the shoulders, down to the base of the ribs and back to the bottom of the sternum, making a heart shape. When ready, move up to the neck with smooth, slow upward strokes.
Then have your loved one lie turn over and lie on their chest. With arms on either side of the spine, stroke up to the back of the neck, around the shoulders, down to the waist, and then back to the spine.
When finished, keep clothing loose so the vapours can rise to the nose and mouth. May be repeated up to four times a day.
