How to Relieve Back Pain Through Reflexology

Edited by: Jack son
Back pain is a universal complaint that can be relieved through reflexology therapy. Most back pain is non-specific and can’t be traced to a particular event, such as an injury. This type of back pain often occurs sporadically. But whether or not your back pain is intermittent or chronic, there are reflexology techniques you can use to give yourself both short-term and long-term relief.

Sub Topic 1: Foot Reflex Points for Relieving Back Pain


Treat lower back pain by applying pressure to the reflexes on the soles of your feet, the entire area around your heel and around your ankle, as well as the inner edge of each foot—the reflex points for your spine are located along the inside edges of your feet. Upper back pain is treated by applying reflexology to the reflex points for your shoulders and upper back, which are represented on the soles and tops of your feet just beneath the base of your toes.

Sub Topic 2: Direct your attention first to your cervical spine


The spine reflex points follow the line of the inside edge of your foot; these reflex points are not on the sole of your foot. Support your right foot with your left hand and use your right thumb to work all of the spine reflexes that are located along the inside edge of your foot, from the tip of your big toe, all the way to your ankle. Starting at your toe, press your thumb firmly into the skin and inch or creep along the length of your foot so you are sure to press every reflex spot.

Sub Topic 3: Hand Reflex Points for Relieving Back Pain


Use hand reflexology whenever it is more convenient than applying foot reflexology or if your feet are injured or infected in any way.Work on your right hand first and then switch to your left hand.
