Many people believe that hands and feet are connected to your body organs. By pressing certain points in our hands or feet, we can relieve the pain temporarily or help to keep you healthy.
Although more scientific research is still needed to prove the touted health benefits, many people turn to pressure points due to their limited side effects and ability to reduce pain and promote relaxation.
I often press points on my hands to relieve headaches, indigestion, stress and tiredness.
