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.
