Anybody who has been to an acupuncturist has probably heard about the pressure points that are located throughout the human body. These points travel along with a call meridians different areas in your body which have somewhat of a cause and effect type of feeling. What I mean is this. If you were to pinch and area between your thumb and inside of your palm you could relieve the pain that you feel somewhere in the back of your neck. This is just an example and probably isn’t correct, however it is a good idea of what the concept is about.
When I first heard this from my acupuncturist I really didn’t think that it could be that beneficial to relieving my pain. Although not a long term solution, massaging or triggering your pressure points without the use of a needle can give you short term relief. Especially if you also avoid the activity that caused it for a brief period of time.
In my honest opinion, I truly believe that acupuncture will always be a much better treatment. Although this is a great way to quickly relieve any pain that might start to cause problems as your day continues.
