Acupressure: Pressing These Points on Your Palm May Help You Alleviate Some Pains


Acupressure is said to relief any kind of pain by simply pressing the points on your palm. It’s free, non-invasive and seemingly effective. But is it too good to be true?


Acupressure Has Been Around for Over 5,000 Years

You will need to travel 5,000 years back in history to find where acupressure began in ancient China. It’s no accident that our human instinct is to put pressure where there is pain. Similarly, that is how acupressure was born. People discovered that pressing certain points on your body would not only alleviate the pain within that region but affected other areas of your body as well.


It has been said that early in Chinese history, some soldiers who were wounded by arrows or stones reported many life-long symptoms of disease simply vanish. Physicians couldn’t make a logical connection between the new trauma and the recovery of their health.

Through many years of trial and error, people have found ways to relieve their pain through pressing certain points on their body which are directly connected to other areas.

Many people even today turn to acupressure and acupuncture for pain relief as an alternative to dangerous pain medications with a long list of side effects. After all, painkillers are one of the top causes of drug addiction.


Try Acupressure For Yourself

The best part about acupressure is that you can do it yourself and it doesn’t cost a thing (especially for your health). So there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give it a shot.

  • After you’ve held it for 5 seconds, give it a 3-second rest.
  • Repeat this simple process for several minutes.
  • After repeating these treatments several times a day, over the next few days, your pain should gradually decrease.
