WARNING! Kidney problems are one of the main causes of high blood pressure. If your kidney functions improve, it is likely that the dosage of your blood pressure medications will need to be modified. Check your blood pressure regularly, and consult your doctors, nurses, and pharmacists as needed regarding these medications.

Purpose: To free up restrictions in the right kidney region by performing an advanced version of Organ Region Mobility Exercises Stage 4.

Schedule: Perform Organ Region Mobility Exercise Stages 9 and 10 together as a set. This set of exercises should be performed only if you are flexible enough to comfortably execute the hand positions and exercise movements as laid out in the instructions. If you are not quite ready yet, simply continue your self treatment until you are ready to try again at a later date. This exercise set should be performed on two separate days.

Step 1: Place your left and right hands as follows:

Left Hand: position behind and below the right ribcage.
Right Hand: place over the upper margin of the right pelvis.

Step 3: Repeat Step 2, this time bending the right kidney region backward.

Step 4: Repeat Step 2, this time turning the right kidney region to the right.
