The Essential Health Benefits Of Hand Acupressure (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 

(N.Morgan) In the last decade or so we’ve seen a dramatic increase in people looking to natural or alternative medicines to effectively treat their ailments. Perhaps everything else they’ve already tried hasn’t worked or they don’t want to have to rely on modern, expensive health options.

Mainstream treatments usually involve harsh and costly pharmaceuticals, which often have even worse side effects than the actual health issue. Many people end up turning to homeopathic remedies in an effort to naturally balance and help heal their bodies, as well as their minds.

One alternative that is most popular and effective treatment methods comes from the ancient Chinese alternative medicine field of acupressure. The act of applying focused pressure to various points on our bodies does wonders to dissolve away aches, pains, tension, and built up stresses that are bogging us down.

Acupressure works by stimulating the thousands of nerves in the body, thereby increasing blood flow. 

Human feet alone have over 15,000 nerves and they all connect to form a network that reaches different areas of the body, like the main organs and glands. Many have found that by using simple acupressure massage techniques at home they could dramatically relieve pain and discomfort caused by common ailments. People have successfully treated their migraines, headaches, back pain, digestion and sleep issues, and more by massaging different body points associated with the area in which the problem stems from.

Headache Relief with Pressure Points

One point is found on the hands and it’s primarily used to help relieve pain and discomfort stemming from headaches and migraines. The point can be found right above the webbing between the thumb and index fingers on each hand. To activate it, press firmly down on the point while massaging and rotating in a circular or back and forth motion for at least 30 seconds and up to a couple of minutes at a time.

Make sure you are relaxed and comfortable, sit back and close your eyes, and breathe evenly in and out. This technique may be done anywhere at anytime of the day and it can be repeated however many times you’d like.

The accompanying video shows you exactly where and how this self-massage should be done and it also demonstrates a number of other pressure points that can be used for headache relief.

There are many more acupressure treatments that are incredibly simple, convenient, easy to do, and don’t cost you a penny if done in the comfort of your home. If you’re hesitant or doubtful about whether or not acupressure could help you, try thinking about it like this; you have nothing to lose and potentially lots to gain by giving yourself a hand massage. At the very least you’ll feel more at ease, relaxed, and comfortable.

      Hello Angle#3(prelim),

      Charlie here. I believe the best therapy for your hands is to have a doughnut in one and coffee in the other. Have you tried this doughnut/coffee method??

      I personally do not believe your body parts are located in your hand.

      Signed,

      Charlie (doughnuts in the stomach can do wonders for you) :lol:

      how do you test that your ovary or prostate is getting better by massaging you hand?
