Although every one of us always runs towards conventional medicine every time we have even a headache, it is nowhere near as effective as we’d like it to be.

Thankfully there is an option that is being increasingly preferred by a number of people. Amongst the many branches of alternative medicine, we have Reflexology. This practice is based on the fact that our body has corresponding pressure points on our hands and feet, which are connected to many different parts of the body.

When pressure is applied to a pressure point, it acts by removing the pain from the corresponding body part. This practice involves a cycle of 6 seconds of pressure applied, followed by a 3 second break, and then back to 6 seconds of pressure. It works even if you do it for just a few minutes.

If you can do this throughout the day, 5 or 6 times, then you can bid farewell to your pain easily. It has been proven effective for problems such as back pains, sleeplessness, fatigue, constipation, lack of libido and even sinus blockage.

For instance, if you are facing problems with your digestion, you need to apply pressure on the lower part of your palm. One way to do is to interlock your fingers, put a golf ball in your hands and roll it around that area.

You need to do it for 35-50 seconds in one sitting, and if done twice or thrice a day, it can begin to show results in just a few weeks.

For people struggling with insomnia and resulting tiredness, there is a simple thing they can do to get rid of the problem. For this they have to apply pressure on the point which is connected to the pituitary gland.

You have to use the nail of one thumb to apply pressure in the centre of the other thumb. If it feels like you are being stabbed with a needle that is the spot. You’ll find that overtime when you do it and start seeing results, this pinching feeling would go away.

Sinus blockage and congestion is connected to our fingers. To cure that, we need to apply pressure on all our fingers. By using the thumb of the other hand, go from the base to the tip while pressing on all the nodes. Alternatively you can also do a rubbing action on your fingers to apply pressure.

This same technique can be applied to a slightly different area to get rid of spine related problems such as back aches. The area to put pressure on is from the top of the thumb till the wrist.

For libido and other reproductive system related issues, you need to apply pressure on the side of your wrist. It can be done by encircling it with the other hand and sort of twisting it so that it feels the pressure.
