Acupressure is a holistic, noninvasive way to relieve pain in the body. If you have a sore area, you can address it specifically by finding the corresponding part of the hand. For example, for lower-back pain, press on the back of the hand right between the middle and fourth finger. Once you find the proper point in the hand, apply pressure for a few seconds. The results of acupressure are instant and in some patients, they are so dramatic it seems like magic.

Lightly hold each finger one at a time. Begin with your right thumb, exhale and inhale 36 breaths (or 3-5 minutes). Continue with each finger. Do the right hand, then the left. If you don’t have time for both hands, hold the side that feels most tense.
