There is an ever growing population of people just like you, who believe that there is better way of relieving pain and promoting an overall feeling of good health, than the more traditional way of drugs.
Products like the MINI DOCTOR™ (sold separately) – the latest technology in drug free pain relief, are becoming very popular. People see these products as a first line of defense in the battle against aches and pains. Self care disciplines, like acupressure, are increasingly becoming common place and standard practice.
As you go through the pages keep in mind that there a four basic techniques that can be used in any of the charts.
- Firm steady pressure is the most common technique. Use the side of your hand, your palm, thumbs, fingers, or knuckles to apply steady stationary pressure.
- Slow motion massaging uses the thumbs and fingers with the heels of your hands to squeeze large muscle groups firmly.
- Brisk Rubbing uses friction to stimulate the blood and lymph.
- Quick tapping with the fingertips stimulates muscles on unprotected, tender areas of the body such as the face.
Caution: If you have a serious illness or chronic life threatening illness, such as, a heart condition, high blood pressure, or cancer, you should be very careful when applying any of these techniques. YOU WANT TO AVOID OVER STIMULATION.
