Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has evolved thousands of years ago and has been commonly practiced ever since.
It is a combination of herbal medicines and various mind and body practices, like acupuncture and tai chi, that effectively heals the body and treats various kinds of health issues and diseases.
It revolves around the notion that the body vital energy, known as qi, flows through meridians, which are paths that connect all major organs and bodily functions.
Yin and yang are complementary forces that interact in all aspects of life, and affect the qi. It actually manifests itself through yin and yang, which need to be in a perfect harmony to ensure optimal health.
Traditional healing techniques, like acupressure and acupuncture, are effective methods to treat pain due to various causes and avoid the serious side-effects of painkillers.
Reflexology is a popular healing method, part of the alternative medicine, which treats various health issues by pressing certain points on the body in order to stimulate them.
This healing method, also known as zone therapy, is the practice of controlled pressure, on ‘reflex zones’ found in the feet, hands and ears, as a way to encourage a beneficial effect on other body parts, improve general health, relieve symptoms of stress, illnesses, and injuries, and prevent illness.
If done frequently, this will help the body heal the issues in a completely safe and natural day.
These points are pressed with the hands for 6 seconds, followed by a 3-second break, and another wave of pressure for several minutes. Dr. Oz claims that reflexology is a powerful method that can do wonders for the body.
He invited an experienced reflexologist, Deborah Flanagan, in his show, in order to show people how to alleviate pain in this way. She chose guest volunteers for the experiment, and successfully treated their back pain, fatigue, insomnia, constipation, sinus blockage, and diminished libido.
