Chronic pain and discomfort throughout the body has yet to be properly addressed by western medicine. Contrary to it, alternative medicine is light-years ahead in relieving pain. The best option would be to combine both western and alternative medicine, but having a look at reflexology is another good idea.
Reflexology is basically the practice of finding certain pressure points on the palm of the hand which are connected to the body part that causes pain. Pressing them for 5 seconds, releasing for 3, then pressing them again for 5 and repeating the process for several minutes and times a day, will bring positive results and considerably reduce the pain.
The video below demonstrates this techniques and others, and as you will see, Dr. Oz’s guest is a reflexologist who claims that our limbs are essentially a microcosm in our bodies. Five members from the audience on the stage give details on what body part is causing them pain or discomfort, and the reflexologist explains how pressing certain points on the hand can bring relief from the pain over time.
The audience members suffered from:
- Constipation and bloating
- Insomnia and exhaustion
- Sinus congestion
- Upper back pain
- Low libido
Dr. Oz’s guest shows them how to work on their palms and reduce the pain, and explains what sensations they might experience while massaging. Watch the video below for detailed instructions:
