Pain may be devastating at times, especially if it lasts for an extended period. That ibuprofen isn’t going to cut it for long, and it may even make things worse in the long run. There is only one natural remedy for any pain without side effects: reflexology!
Pressure points, acupuncture, and even yoga may be familiar concepts to you. Reflexology encompasses a wide range of practices. Especially in ancient Chinese communities, reflexology has been used for thousands of years. Pressure is applied to one part of the body to activate another. According to reflexology theory, these zones relate to organs and systems in the human body. Followers believe that applying pressure to these points has a positive effect on the organs and, as a result, on the individual’s health.
Benefits of Reflexology:
- Improved nerve function

- Toxin removal
- Central nervous system stimulant
- Migraines and headaches
- Cancer fighting abilities

In the video below, Dr. Oz has a guest star on his show who is a reflexologist. Five audience members come to the stage to explain what part of their body is causing them chronic discomfort or pain. For each malady, the reflexologist explains which part of the palm is connected to the body part involved. She then demonstrates how using one hand, different forms of pressing or massaging of a particular part of the palm of the other hand will, over time, alleviate the pain experienced.
