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.
