Finger Technique: Finger Flicks

Finger Flicks 1

Finger Flicks, one of eight Nia finger techniques, offers self-healing and conditioning benefits to your hands, arms and whole body. This move trains you to direct movement by tuning into the sensation of agility, a start-stop as you flick the fingers of each hand. Isolated, this move strengthens the muscles of the fingers, hands and forearms.  Use finger flicks to release energy into the space around you. Continue below for tips and video.


Tips: Create a little positive tension with your thumbs before releasing. Add variety by turning your hands up, down and in different directions as you flick.  Play with isolating one finger at a time or even reversing the flick with the thumbs.  Watch and move to the video below to bring this finger technique alive!
