Though practices like acupuncture have become popular in the West over the last few decades, they have been a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. Hand reflexology and acupressure are two techniques that can achieve similar results to more complicated practices like acupuncture, but can be done at home, on yourself, without any tools.

This book acts as a beginner's guide to these pressure-based practices. Through illustrations and easy-to-understand language, readers can learn a variety of useful pressure points, how to properly utilize them and daily care that can be done to address certain health concerns.

Through recent studies, hand reflexology and acupressure have been shown to help with a variety of issues, including:
  • Nausea
  • Stress, tension and anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Chronic pain
  • Digestive issues
  • Muscle and joint injury

The safe, reliable techniques outlined in this book are easy for anyone to master and, importantly, can be used anywhere.
