When it comes to drug-free ways to manage chronic pain, the internet is full of ideas, from herbal tinctures to meditation. Some of them may prove very effective once you get past the taste or if you’ve got a lot of time to invest in perfecting your practice. But there are options that can bring instant relief and relaxing, enjoyable experience.
Acupressure is a form of therapeutic massage. It’s rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been proven effective over millennia for the treatment of illness and as a pain therapy system. Utilizing the same acu-points that acupuncturists use — but without the needles — acupressure massage specialists can bring relief from stress and trauma carried in the body. Using fingers, palms and elbows (never needles) to apply deep but gentle pressure at specific points along the 12 main meridians in the body for short periods of time, acupressure can help to unblock the flow of energy (Qi) throughout the body. This diffuses the toxic build-up that can accumulate in muscle tissue.
There are several ways that acupressure massage can help with pain management.
Reflexology is a very specific form of foot massage based on ancient holistic practices that originated in China and Egypt thousands of years ago. By pressing on specific points in the feet and hands, a professional trained in reflexology can stimulate a reaction in corresponding organs and areas of the body. This in turn triggers a healing response, making reflexology another great pain therapy system. A professional reflexologist understands the interconnectedness of the body and how to restore balance.
