Self administered reflexology and acupressure are great ways to provide quick discrete relief for a variety of pain and symptoms without having to wait for an appointment, further impeding your routine, or touching sensitive areas where you are experiencing pain.

Acupressure & Reflexology

Acupressure and acupuncture work on the same principles without the intimidation factor. Acupuncture uses needles, while acupressure uses fingers providing moderate pressure.

Reflexology specifically is the use of therapeutic pressure massage in specific areas of our hands and feet to facilitate functional flow of energy, pain relief and optimal health. There are areas on our hands and feet called reflexes that correspond to specific areas of our bodies and even organ systems within our bodies. Often in areas that we feel pain, there is a blockage of energy preventing health and wellness.
Below are combined approaches of these two practices that you can use, at home or on the go.

Migraines And Headaches

You can ease the pain from headaches and migraines by focusing on the area at the base of the fingernails. Concentrate on the index finger and the webbing between thumb and index finger.

Sinus Pressure And Pain

Face palm towards you and bring your thumb to the pad of your finger and forefinger to the opposite side close to your cuticle. For 1-3 minutes, squeeze and hold the tip of each finger and press firmly. Then, lightly massage the area. Do the same on every finger.

Tension And Pain In The Neck

Start by massaging from the middle part between the knuckle at the top toward the base of the finger. Do this on every finger on both hands.

Upset Stomach

Warm up the whole thumb by massaging it. It will respond to the stomach and spleen meridians. Also, you can press directly in the center of your palm.

Menstrual Cramps Or Abdominal Pain

Massage gently the whole hand and then press directly on the point on your index finger just below and on the side of your nail on the side closest to the thumb.

Another location you need to press directly is a point on your small finger just away from the nail on the cuticle line toward the outside.

First, start by massaging your hands together for a minute to boost the energy and sensitivity of your hands. Massage gently by using the fingers and thumb of your opposite hand to warm up the skin.

Press firmly the area of interest using your opposite thumb and fingers. Hold it for 1-5 minutes and repeat 1-5 times as needed, or each day to prevent this problem.

For more gentle areas hold 3-5 seconds. Keep the pressure and start slowly massaging in small clockwise circles up to five times. Then, give the area a small break. Try to move the tissue with this massage, not merely rubbing the skin. Press firmly again up to a minute and then take a break. Do this process up to five times.

Staying hydrated is probably one of the best tips from massage therapists and body workers. It is important because adequate hydration offers optimal health of the tissue, quality circulation, and aids in toxins removal from the bloodstream post massage and otherwise.

Warning:

Avoid deep pressure to the web of the hand while pregnant. Also, there are areas that can support stimulating uterine contractions, and if you are not in labor and supervised by a professional MT or doula, this practice should be avoided.
