Incorrect posture, an unfortunate accident or suddenly moving the wrong way – regardless of what may have caused your injury, if you’re experiencing chronic back pain, you’ve probably tried numerous treatments and are desperate for immediate relief.
With so many options to choose from, selecting the right back pain relief for you can be overwhelming and frustrating. While some treatments, such as chiropractors and physiotherapists, may offer temporary solutions, the long-term results of these practices are debatable.
Developed over thousands of years, the practice of acupressure and reflexology massages in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers proven and immediate results for chronic back pain relief.
To help understand the benefits of acupressure and reflexology, it is best to first understand the initial cause of chronic back pain. The discomfort caused by an injury is frequently treated using pain medications (i.e. Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen) that are designed to numb the pain. While these medications offer the illusion of immediate relief, they often fail to treat the injury itself. The pain, caused by stress to the body’s muscles, reoccurs because the initial stress to the muscles remain untreated. Relief can only be fully expected if the original injury is properly treated. Offering relief to the origin of the pain, acupressure and reflexology provides treatment that is both immediate and permanent.
Using TCM, there are two options for treating back pain. These options are acupressure and reflexology.
Without the use of the actual needles, acupressure is somewhat similar to acupuncture. Accessing the body’s natural healing ability, various acu-points are deeply penetrated using a gentle massaging technique. Massage techniques for the practitioner involve the use of their fingers, palms and elbows. In addition to providing relief for most forms of pain, acupressure is also suitable for treating numerous illnesses and diseases.

Similar to acupressure, reflexology foot massages access various pressure points within your feet to help relieve an assortment of pains and illnesses, including chronic back pain. Like acupressure, a gentle, deep, penetrating massage is applied. Also using their fingers and palms, your reflexologist can help relieve a wide assortment of your ailments.
How Acupressure and Reflexology Will Benefit You
While acupressure and reflexology massages offer numerous benefits, the most obvious benefit is chronic back pain relief. With professional treatment, most patients can expect immediate results and, by accessing a series of regular treatments, full recovery from back pain can be expected. However, the benefits of acupressure and reflexology for other pains and illnesses can not be overstated. Additional benefits can include pain relief throughout the entire body, relief from stress, a calmed mind, a relaxed body and muscles, a reduced need for pain medications, more energy and even reduced wrinkles.
