Alternative medicine can often be light-years ahead from the western medicine when it comes to relieving pain. But, a combination of western and alternative medicine is probably the best way to treat all kinds of health conditions; it is worth looking at the benefits of an alternative form of pain resolution, such as reflexology. The main principles of reflexology have led to the idea of finding the pressure points within the palm of your hand that is connected to the part of the body causing you pain.
If you press the thumb point into the corresponding part of the hand for 5 seconds, releasing for 3 seconds, pressing again and repeating this cycle for several minutes, several times a day you will get results you want.
This methodology, as well as others, is demonstrated in the video below. In this video, Dr. Oz’s guest is a Reflexologist who explains that both the hands and feet can be seen as a microcosm of our entire body.
5 members of the audience come to the stage to explain what part of their body is causing them pain. For each disorder, the reflexologist explains which part of the palm is connected to the body part involved. She then shows how using one hand, different forms of pressing or massaging of a different part of the palm of the other hand will, over time, relieve the pain they are experiencing.
The audience members in this video suffered from:
- Constipation and bloating
- Insomnia and exhaustion
- Sinus congestion
- Upper back pain
- Low libido.
Her explanations were fascinating and easy to follow. She showed them how to work on their own palms to lower their pain or problem. She said what kind of sensations they would feel while they apply pressure and massage; that would signal that they were working in the correct area.
After watching this video I think will try some of the methods demonstrated for things that I need relief from. What you think about reflexology after watching the video? Have you ever tried it or you will you give it a try?
