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 are 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 bellow. 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 from 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.
