Acupressure

Acupressure is a holistic, noninvasive way to relieve pain in the body. Su Jok, a Korean form of healing acupressure, is based on reference meridian points in the hands and feet that represent the entire body.

If you have a sore area, you can address it specifically by finding the corresponding part of the hand. For example, for lower-back pain, press on the back of the hand right between the middle and fourth finger. Once you find the proper point in the hand, apply pressure for a few seconds.

The results of acupressure are instant and can be similar to Chinese acupuncture; in some patients, they are so dramatic it seems like magic.

    Tamb1 if you look at the diagram, you'll notice you are looking at the bottoms of the feet. If you imagine the feet are turned upright, the big toes are ones touching. I see how it looks confusing, but you're looking at the underside of the feet, and the diagram is accurate. Hope you still tried it and found relief for what ails you :)

    This diagram makes absolutely no sense. I don't know about the rest of you, but my big toes are next to each other, not my little toes.
