Have you ever heard of reflexology? It involves alternative treatments of pain and guarantees great benefits. Reflexology understands the idea of determining the pressure points within the borders of your palm. These points are connected to corresponding parts in the body that cause pain.
By pressing a particular point on your thumb for 5 seconds, releasing the pressure for 3 seconds, pressing it again, and repeating the whole thing for a few minutes you will sure get the results you expect. For optimal results you should repeat the procedure several times a day.
