You can cure just about any pain you feel in your body by simply applying some pressure to a certain point on your palm.

There is an easy yet highly effective way to get pain relief in any part of your body without experiencing any of the possible side effects of conventional painkillers. It involves the use of hand reflexology, a method based on the application of pressure to certain points on one’s palms to alleviate pain. The principles of reflexology have led to the idea of finding the pressure points within the palm of your hand that are connected to the part of the body causing you pain.  By pressing the thumb point into the corresponding part of the hand you will soon effectively relieve your pain.


What you should do is simply follow the instructions given below and consult the given infographic to locate the place from where your pain stems.
