Surabhi Mudra stimulates the manipura chakra (solar plexus) and helps to bring all five elements into balance, particularly by calming the fire element. When the eight fingers come together, a number of nerve centres and glands are stimulated, such as the adrenal, pineal and pituitary. As such, Surabhi Mudra helps to detoxify the body, and improves digestion, metabolism and hormonal equilibrium.

Surabhi Mudra is a sacred gesture or 'seal,' otherwise known as the 'wish-fulfilling' mudra. In yoga, mudra's are used to direct or seal energy in the subtle body. Surabhi Mudra is named after Surabhi, daughter of the divine cow Kamadhenu, and the placement of the fingers in this mudra symbolizes the udders of the cow.

One of the earliest depictions in art of a handshake is from the 9th century B.C. Homer mentioned a handshake in The Odyssey a century or two later.
A stressful situation — whether something environmental, or psychological, can trigger a cascade of stress hormones that produce well-orchestrated physiological changes.
This combination of reactions to stress is also known as the "fight-or-flight" response because it evolved as a survival mechanism, enabling people to react quickly to life-threatening situations. The carefully orchestrated sequence of hormonal changes and physiological responses helps someone to fight the threat off or flee to safety. Unfortunately, the body can also overreact to stressors that are not life-threatening.
