HAND REFLEXOLOGY POINTS FOR PAIN…

Reflexologists believe that the hands are considered to have electrical properties.

The right hand palm being positive and the left hand palm negative.The right hand also has a reinforcing, stimulating effect while the left has a calming, sedative effect.

The back of each hand is opposite to the palm, so the right is negative and the left positive.This is important when using reflexology as if the object is to revitalise the body and restore energy flow, then the right hand will have the best effect. The left hand, with its calming effect is best used for pain.

Since hand reflexology is performed by applying pressure from fingers and thumbs on reflex points on the hands, the practice can provide an easy, cost-effective and safe way to treat ailments.While reflexology hand mapping feels best (and may be more effective) when done by someone else, it is possible to work on oneself.

HEALTHLINE shows that if you press the hand valley point can be found in the firm skin between the thumb and index finger. Reflexologists claim that applying firm touch to this pressure point may help reduce stress, as well as alleviate migraines, toothaches, shoulder tension, and neck pain

Try having a go on yourself by pinching the finger tips and thumb of your right hand. The pressure applied to each finger should be firm, but make sure it is not painful. A few seconds for each single finger tip will be sufficient. Now do the same with the other hand. Check with your GP first if you are on medication.

A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE DEVELOPMENT OF THE THERMAFLX GARMENT FOR BACK PAIN…

Ross Lorberbaum a long time back pain sufferer, like myself, contacted me about his launch to “Kickstarter”, to raise funds for a full body hot and cold therapy garment they have developed. Here are the full details on how the ThermaFLX garment can help you.


ThermaFLX brings you the ability to take full advantage of hot and cold therapy anytime and anywhere. ThermaFLX Hot & Cold Garments allow the user mobility, ease of application, and evenly distributed hot or cold therapy to any combination of major muscle groups. Our compression fit garments bring a unique and much needed solution to applying hot and cold therapy.

Whether you have an upper or lower body injury, stiffness, muscle pain, aching, back problems, or muscle spasms; ThermaFLX was designed with you in mind!

When you head over to their page there is a video on how to use the ThermaFLX to get the full benefit of the garment.

ThermaFLX Hot & Cold Packs bring the best of both worlds, offering you access to the full benefit of either hot, cold, or contrast therapy. Our packs were made with a focus on quality, longevity, and ability to maintain the proper temperature to meet the demands of your therapy.

Use our all-in-one packs for heat applications by throwing them in the microwave, or for cold applications by throwing them in the freezer. There’s no need to have different packs for different situations. ThermaFLX packs can handle them all!

Our team knows what it means to have no way to apply hot & cold therapy on the go. We’ve all been stuck on the couch laying on an ice pack for what seems like eternity. We couldn’t help but think there had to be a better way to apply hot & cold therapy.  

We set out to start developing ThermaFLX products well over a year ago as a small side project. It quickly turned into a full-blown passionfor our team. We’ve been through countless product design iterations to ensure we bring our customers the quality and functionality they deserve. Mediocre is not something we were willing to accept. The more individuals we connected with, the more we felt a sense of duty to bring these products to the market.

Check out the ThermaFLX story on “Kickstarter” to maybe help them and you kick start their journey to pain relief for many with the ThermaFLX garment.
