I am so impressed by how “little” things can make such a BIG difference in our lives. As a chiropractor, I get to see big changes in my patients from just the small things I do for them in the office. We see even bigger changes when the patients do exercises, or other activities that I have taught them to do, on their own. I love things like in this video below from Ayurveda by Curejoy. The video shows several simple acupressure points on the ear, that you can activate with a basic clothespin, to provide relief of symptoms in various parts of your body. I was having a lot of sinus congestion and post-nasal drip irritating my throat. I just held the throat and sinuses area between my thumb and index finger for about a minute and got quit a bit of relief.
I don’t fully understand how acupressure or acupuncture work, but I do know that our bodies are systems and things that happen in one area of the body can certainly have effects in other areas. I have seen many amazing things come from this type of treatment both in and out of the clinical setting. So, if you are having any problems in any of these areas, give this a try and let me know what your experience is.
