It is not a good idea to always rely on medicines to treat even the simplest problems. That is why we suggest some traditional healing techniques that can prove as effective as the medicines most people are taking on a daily basis. Furthermore, both acupressure and acupuncture can prove as effective for soothing the pain.
But, you won’t need to visit a professional to treat these problems. Here is a simple trick that might help you heal some parts of the body.
Besides, there are no side-effects, nor expensive methods for healing. All you will need is at home.
Reflexology is a healing method that is based on using pressure as a way to stimulate certain parts of the body. This method can help heal a number of health problems. As a result, people consider it part of alternative medicine.
For this method to work, your hands will be your primary ‘’tool’’. Every massage takes around six seconds, followed by a three-second pause and another wave of pressure for a couple of minutes. Simple yet effective.
If you do this every day or whenever you need to, you might improve the overall performance of the body and avoid any uncomfortable pain. According to many people, this method can do wonders for the body.
A Full Step By Step
According to Deborah Flanagan, a popular reflexologist, people can get rid of the pain by simply massaging certain spots on their hands. Furthermore, this method might even prove useful for dealing with constipation, back pains, sinus blockage, fatigue, and diminished libido.
Here is how you can try this method to treat some parts of the body that cause pain.
Use some moisturizer or cream of your choosing and apply it on the hands. Massage your hands with the cream until it has been completely absorbed. Next, relax the hands so that they will be more flexible.
Note: Don’t use a slippery or greasy cream. It will make it difficult to massage specific points on the hand.
Choose an area best suited for the type of pain according to the picture. Focus specifically on that area and massage it for a couple of minutes. Start by massaging the spot for six seconds, followed by a three-second pause, and continue massaging the spot for a few minutes.
Follow the guidelines shown in the picture to locate the pain to treat it properly.
Keep pressing the reflex point firmly and slowly increase the pressure after some time. This will activate the reflex and soothe some of the pain.
Hold some pressure on the spot for about 30 seconds and release.
Take a break after every pressure and keep repeating the process as much or as little as you may like.
With the thumb apply light pressure with a circular motion on the spot for five seconds. Next, rotate in a circular motion in the opposite direction again for five seconds.
Relax for half an hour and drink some water to get rid of the toxins from the body.
