Learn 5 of our favorite acupressure points on the hand that are easy to treat and incredibly effective for pain relief!
Hello everyone! So with our business closed for over a month now, we've been staying in touch with lots of tips around immune boosting and stress relief, so I thought I'd take some time to focus on another extremely important topic, PAIN RELIEF! So many of my patients are not only unable to come here for acupuncture, but are being delayed with surgeries, cortisone injections and other therapies that they depend on for relief from their pain. So in this post, I am going to teach you my favorite acupressure points that are easily found on the hand, to treat pain in many different areas of the body.
The best way to treat this is for you or a fellow quarantined loved one to apply strong massage to the area. All of these points are quite strong and best avoided if you are pregnant.
I truly hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! Try the points above and please let me know if they helped you! If you want to meet up online for some acupressure, I am teaching an acupressure class every Monday at 12pm (noon)! Email or call us to sign up or find out more info!
