Manage Pain Effectively with THESE 7 Pressure Points
5. Thumb Nail Point
This acupressure point can be located on the outside lower corner of the nail. If locating on the right thumbnail, it will be on the lower left side. Once this point is located, apply pressure or massage the point for some time to stimulate it. This point is known to help relieve negative emotions and even suppress fatigue.
6. Finger Tips
There are several sinus pressure points located on the finger tips. Activate these points by pressing the tips one at a time on both hands. These points are similar to the points on the toes and increase circulation which can help drain sinuses and relieve pressure.
7. Finger Nails
Similarly to the finger tip pressure points, all finger nails have pressure points beside them. Pressing these points gently and one at a time will increase circulation. This circulation also assists with sinuses and sinus pressure as well as other symptoms from colds and sore throats related to this part of the body.
Acupuncture is particularly useful as a tool for pain control. By pressing these points and many more, not only can various types of pain be controlled but also anti-inflammatory effects can be triggered. For pressure points in the hand, one of the positive effects of anti-inflammatory responses is a reduction in pain from things like carpal tunnel. The neuromuscular effects of acupuncture are also capable of relieving stress and tension in aggravated tendons and muscles in areas like the forearm, neck, upper back, and postural areas.
