Acupressure for Migraine Headache – Massage Monday #378

Hi everyone. I am Yasuko and it's time for Massage Monday. My dear friend is suffering from migraines
so this week I'm going to share acupressure points for migraine. Migraine is a severe case of headache and
often comes on one side of the head and accompanied by blurred vision, pounding sensation, nausea,
and physical movement makes it worse. Press these points for one minute as you breathe
deeply. The first one is on your hand. If you are pregnant do not press this point
until after the due date because it can cause labor. You can press all the other ones in this video. Close your thumb and index finger. It's at the end of the crease. This is called Large Intestine 4 or LI 4. Press this point towards the index finger
bone. This point is good for any kind of pain because
it produces endorphins also known as a natural painkiller hormone. The next one is in the corner of the forehead
where the forehead and hairline meet. This is called Stomach 8 or ST 8. Some instructions say half the thumb width
from the hairline. To be exact it's 4.5 thumb widths or 4.5 cuns
from the center where the nose line and the hairline meet. You can also use four fingers which is the
same as 3 thumbs or 3 cuns and two fingers which is the same as 1.5 thumb or 1.5 cun. I think it's simpler to imagine you have a
straight hairline across and down and it's in the corner. Find the depression in the center at the base
of the skull. Move to the side and go over the big ropy
muscle which is trapezius and there is a depression. These are called GB 20 or Gall Bladder 20. You can press or circle to stimulate these
points using hooked thumbs, fingertips, overlapped fingertips, or with free thumbs by weaving
fingers. The last one is on the top of the foot. Go up the valley between the pinky and 4th
toe and it's where the finger stops. This is called Gallbladder 41 or GB 41. If you have a hard time reaching your foot,
use a tool such as a pencil eraser to press these points. I hope this is helpful. Thanks for watching. I'll see you back next week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don't

Natural Sciatic Pain Treatment | How To Naturally Relieve Sciatica Pain | IntroWellness

I have leg pain — is it Sciatica? How do I know if my leg pain is Sciatica? How do I get rid of my Sciatica? Sciatica is a term commonly thrown around
to describe leg pain, which can include the buttock(s), thigh(s), or leg(s), and even
into the foot. However, Sciatica is not a medical diagnosis,
as it only describes symptoms, not the source or cause of why the symptoms exist in the
first place. The term sciatica derives from the sciatic
nerve, which is a collection of individual nerve roots stemming from the spinal cord. The nerve roots bundle together near the back
and buttock to assemble the largest nerve of the leg — the sciatic nerve — which then
branches into other nerves of the lower leg once it passes the knee. Though the term sciatica is used to loosely
describe leg pain and symptoms, it’s prevalence is quite high. However, not all leg pain is irritation of
the sciatic nerve! Sciatica is rarely associated with a specific
event causing injury, rather it’s described as occurring for no apparent reason. However, certain conditions requiring immediate
medical attention can mimic sciatica symptoms. If you’re experiencing sciatica-like symptoms
with progressive neurological symptoms (i.e. leg weakness, numbness, drop foot, bladder
dysfunction, or bowel dysfunction occurring about the same time) call the ER now. Spinal tumors and infections can also mimic
sciatica. The vast majority of people who experience
sciatica will experience resolution naturally by giving it time — from weeks to months
— and staying mobile. More serious cases of sciatica can take months
to years. Very few cases of sciatica require surgery. If the symptoms are severe to the point where
it’s drastically affecting your daily functions, medical intervention (i.e. steroid injections
or surgery) may be your best next step. While most cases of sciatica can be treated
conservatively with great results, identifying the source of the problem is absolutely imperative. Sciatica-like symptoms typically stem from
the spine. If your leg symptoms change with how you use
your body, it’s likely it’s from a spinal source and can resolve with the correct movement
strategy. Most muscle and joint problems, like sciatica,
will resolve on their own with time and movement. Here are a few helpful strategies to get you
there sooner, without unnecessarily setting yourself back. Motion is like lotion for your body. Unless it’s extremely painful to move, staying
active is the best advice to give someone who’s suffering from sciatica that changes
with certain movements, postures, or positions. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to avoid movements
and positions that make you feel worse or stiffer and continue to move in a way that
makes you feel and move better. For example, if sitting makes you feel worse
and stiffer, but standing or walking makes you feel better and more mobile, avoid sitting
and stand or walk more. If you have pain/stiffness in your back with
associated sciatica, your symptoms get worse when you sit and better when you’re up and
moving around, it’s likely you will benefit from a simple exercise called the press-up. What you do is lay down on your front, placing
your palms down beside your ears. Next, press your upper body up while letting
the hips sag toward the ground. If you have pain at a certain point of the
movement, “kiss” the pain then return to start. Perform this for 10 repetitions every three
hours for the next two days to determine if it’s mitigating your sciatica symptoms. The majority of individuals who respond to
a repetitive extension movement strategy can resolve their problem on their own. However, this exercise is far from a “one-size-fits-all”
solution. As a result, if you suspect the exercise is
making you feel more pain and stiffness, it’s best to stop performing it and seek professional
assistance. Yes, posture — every mother’s favorite
critique of their children. No matter how far your roll your eyes in the
back of your head, Mom has a point — posture matters. Though there’s no scientific evidence of
an ideal posture, we can easily test the effects of posture on ourselves. To learn if posture matters for you, try placing
a rolled up towel in the small of your back whenever you’re sitting. The towel helps you to maintain an upright
posture without having to ask too much of your postural muscles. Test the towel strategy for a few days to
determine if makes your sciatica symptoms more tolerable throughout the day. Lastly, if you are struggling with sciatica
or sciatica-like symptoms, contact a McKenzie Method credentialed chiropractor or physical
therapist to help guide toward a solution.

Tension Headache Relief with Simple Stretches – Ask Doctor Jo

Oh man, I've got a headache, and it feels
this big! Hey everybody, it's Doctor Jo. Today I am going to show you some simple exercises
and stretches if you have a tension headache. Let's get started. To start off, you want
to just loosen up those neck muscles. You can do some active range of motion. Simply
just start by turning your head like you are looking back behind you. Hold it for about
2-3 seconds, come back the other way looking behind you. Hold it there 2-3 seconds, coming
back. You can to that 5-10 times. Then taking your ear towards your shoulder. It's not bringing
your shoulder up to your ear, keep your shoulder down if you can. Come down to the side, hold
it for 3-5 seconds, and then come back the other way. Hold it about 3-5 seconds or 2-3
seconds, do whatever you can. Then you want to tuck your chin in towards your chest, and
then look up towards the ceiling. So same thing, just a couple seconds hold on each
one, going back and forth. That will loosen up those muscles a little bit. Now if that's
not quite enough, if your not feeling much stretch with that, then put a little pressure
over it and now you want to told it for a little bit longer, so maybe 10-15 seconds.
And then do each direction. I had a little pop in my neck, that's a good thing. Holding
it for 10-15 seconds, a little more if you want to. Then push your chin a little bit
to the side. If you have chin problems, use your had to the whole side of the head instead
of just the chin. Then back the other way. Probably with up and down you don't really
need any pressure. The next one is to actually start activating the muscles a little bit.
So this is an isometric muscle activation. Basically your just pushing into your hand.
So if I was going to look down with my chin, I'm going to put my hand on my forehead, and
push down like I'm trying to take my chin down. You don't want to push super hard, just
a little bit to start off with. Hold it about 3-5 seconds, and do about 3 of those. And
then you can do the same thing by putting your hand behind your head, and push back
like you are doing this motion, but my hand is stopping me from doing that motion. I'm
pushing into my hand. Then pushing on the side. So I would be doing that motion, and
then back the other way. Relaxing. And then, I'd be turning this way in that direction
and pushing into my hand. Holding about 3-5 seconds. After you do all that, then you can
start loosening up the shoulders just a little bit. So you can do shoulder shrugs, about
10 of those. Coming up and down and just a little pause up at the top. It doesn't have
to be too long, and then after those ten, then you can do some circles. Ten one way,
and then reverse it, for the Australians going the opposite direction. You can do some shoulder
squeezes. So you're taking your shoulder blades and trying to push them together. Squeezing
in, hold about 3-5 seconds for this one, and come back. Do ten of those. The last one is
going to be some chin tucks, so I am going to show you how to do it lying down. Now for
the chin tucks, roll up a a nice squishy towel to give you a target. When I say chin tucks,
I don't mean bringing your chin down to your chest. Actually pushing your chin downwards.
So the towel gives you the target to take those neck muscles and push them down. Let
your head rest against the ground, and your pushing down that way. So the chins going
down, holding it for about 3-5 seconds and then coming up. Not going down towards your
chest. Do that about 10 times. Those were some stretches and exercises for tension headaches.

5 Pressure Points for Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo

oh hey everybody it's Doctor Jo and Princess
Remy, and today I'm going to show you five pressure point relief spots. so
let's get started. so pressure points don't always work for everybody, but it's a really good easy thing to try
and it does work sometimes. if you've got some stress, a lot of times these help
with headaches, so depending on if you're stressed, if you're anxious, or maybe
you've got some headaches, or just new kind of stress in your neck here, these are
really good to try cuz again, they're quick, they're easy. it might not work for
you, but I think it's worth trying. a couple of them have really worked for me.
so each hold do you want to hold it for about five to ten seconds. and with
pressure points you want to put a good amount of pressure in there. sometimes
with some acupressure points and stuff you're just placing your hand on this,
but this is actually a pressure point where you want to put some pressure on
there. so the first one is over your clavicle area. so you can either do this
on the clavicle bones, some people like that pressure point, or slightly below it.
I like to do it slightly below it because I feel like pressure points do
well on muscle areas, and so you've got a little bit of your muscles right down
below that clavicle right there or that collarbone. so you can try it on the bone,
but I like it better just underneath because there's just a little kind of
groove that you can fit your fingers there. and so I'm pushing into that area.
I'm putting some pressure where it's slightly uncomfortable. it's not painful,
but I can definitely feel the pressure point there. so really again just pushing
five to ten seconds, maybe if you're in a clinic having a therapist do it for you
they might do it a little bit longer, but just starting off you probably just want
to do that five to ten seconds. you can do it a couple times. you can switch and
then do it on the other side. so again there's my clavicle or my collarbone
kind of in the middle of it this it sits here kind of coming in the middle that
little groove and just putting that pressure in through there. if you happen
to feel some numbness or tingling in your hands, if it's strong you might just
be pushing on some nerves through there, so you might want to slightly adjust
because you don't want to irritate the nerves. you really want this to be in the
muscle kind of area and again that five to ten
seconds. so the next one I've used this several times for headaches. so not
migraines, but just maybe like a tension headache or sometimes a dehydration
headache. you want to come down to where your thumb and your pointer finger meet
kind of in this little meaty area in between there's a muscle here a big
thick muscle called your thenar muscle, and you're kind of pushing in there and
in here. so you can see on each side almost like I'm pinching that area but
don't just get the skin, if you come low you're just gonna get the skin you want
to feel some muscle that you're pushing on in there, and I can kind of feel it
tingle into my fingers. Not tingling like nerve pain, but where I'm hitting like a
pressure point and that's what you want to feel. and so again I'm pushing pretty
hard for that five to ten seconds. and I'm going to show you when I let it up
you can kind of see where my fingernail mark is right there. so you know that I'm
pushing pretty hard and again you can do both sides. you can do it a couple times
like if you want to do two or three on each side,
but I'd maybe alternate back and forth. and again you can see that I'm pushing
pretty hard. you can see where it gets a little bit lighter right there because
I'm pushing into that area and then releasing it. so again, a lot of times
even though I'm pushing here, if you have a headache those pressure points kind of
work out throughout your body, so it can help a referred area kind of thing. you
can also do a little pressure point it's called kind of your tendon triangle,
a little bit higher up at your thumb joint up top here. and for some people if
you can get it right, there's a tendon coming here and a tendon coming here and
sometimes there's a nice little groove or a pocket almost where those wrist
bones are. so you can use your thumb in between there or your finger, I kind of
like to use my thumb because I get a little bit more here, but again I'm
pushing right into that triangle around those tendons. so not necessarily on the
tendons, but in between in that pocket and again five to ten seconds holding it
switching sides getting that five to ten second hold and really just kind of
getting that pressure in there and getting everything to relax. and a lot of
times that's just helps relieve that anxiety helps relieve your,
if you're kind of stressed out because it almost kind of resets those muscles,
resets the whole meridian in your body. so then the next ones are for your
temple. so again this is another good one if maybe you have some tension headache,
or maybe at that dehydration headache you feel in the front. tension headaches
in the back or on the side, so just kind of finding your temples. you can do both
of these at the same time or if you just want to do one at a time you can, but
again with this one I like to use my fingers instead of pushing it with my
thumb's just cuz it's up on my temple area sometimes this is a little more
tender. but again I'm putting some pressure on there so I can feel that I'm
pushing. I'm not just placing my fingers there, I'm really kind of pushing in for
that five to ten seconds and really getting that push really getting that
feel, and you can do that a couple times if you want to. and then the last one is
another big one where you hold a lot of stress. you hold a lot of anxiety.
especially if you have a desk job, you work on the computer a lot, if you're
typing. back here is your levator scapulae muscle, and this is the one that
brings our scapula or shoulder blades up. and if you come down to where that
muscle attaches to that shoulder blade or that scapula, a lot of times you can
feel a knot. you can feel that pressure point and so sometimes this one again if
you're doing it to yourself, it's a little easier using your fingers but
maybe if somebody else is willing to do it for you, sometimes using the thumb or
even using the tool so you don't have to wear out your fingers. but I'm almost
just grabbing with my finger kind of going like this, you can see .and a lot of
times if you are stressed out or you've got a lot of you know tension in there,
you're gonna find it pretty easy. you're gonna oh that's the spot and then just
push inwards with those fingers. so again maybe that five to ten seconds. if a
therapist was doing it for you, when I'm working on patient, I usually hold it for
about sixty to ninety seconds. so I'm holding it a lot longer to try and get
those muscles to release, but sometimes it's a little harder to do on your own
and again if you're doing this for the first time, you might not want to go
quite that long because you're going to be sore afterwards. a lot of times when
you're getting those pressure points or those trigger points in there, after you push on it it gets really sore. but then the next
day it actually feels better because it almost reset everything. oh oh yes.
so there's your five stress relief pressure points. if you'd like to help

One Minute Sciatica Exercises for Quick Pain Relief u0026 Cure of Sciatic Pain

top and Brad the 203 is physical today hi folks I'm Bob short physical therapist Brad I'm a physical therapist you got to be the most famous physical therapist on you know that bread in our opinion of course Brad today I want to just show some one-minute sciatica exercises you can do for pain relief these actually can lead to total relief – but it's just kind of a quick start right so so we've got a number of them here not all of them might work but more than likely you're going to find one or two them that are going to give you some good really exactly so let's go ahead and start off Brad the first thing well you know what we're trying to do Brad is we're trying to right away and I stand up sit back down okay out of your head what we're trying to do is we're trying times the pain is going down the leg exactly what can you trigger on stressor and please so a lot of times the pain is in here and then it'll go down one leg or the other leg and you know go out into the but then eventually go down to the back of leg maybe the calf and maybe even to the foot so what we're trying to do with these exercises we're trying to get that pain out of the leg especially out of the foot and calf first and then out of the thigh and then out of the butt and it usually that's the progression right that's what we're looking for from the foot up so this is my painful side aisle if we can see that blue on here I should probably took a red color huh Brad do you want to hand me those pillows here this is often the first step that we do with people when they're having that pain is we're going to have them lay on a couple pillows because some people can't lay flat so all you're going to do for one minute is lay like this kind of the pillows are underneath the pelvis or at the back and then sometimes can you lift up father sometimes I'll put the pillows this way and I'll depends on much more comfortable for so this way or this way right and I think some of these people will be the kind of people that have a hard time straighten up exactly this finding that they're walking forward with that back pain that's right and so this is the progression so you can stay there for a minute then you might just take one pole out Brad right and you might not be able to be on your elbows you may have yeah you'd be down like this yeah and then after another minute you take this one out right and I've done with the patients many times where I'll start with the two pillows yeah I am too and then they say oh it feels a little bit better a lot better with the pillows and you give them I might take a minute or two and then you take one pillow out because it starts feeling better and then you drop it down just like Bob is here so now you know some of you might be able to skip through the skip right away brad exact lemon you might build it and so we're going to have you lay this way for a minute now after that minute what you're gonna try to do is now you're going to try to prop up on your elbows for a minute right so again maybe you can go to this right away to write young people can write you may go up and say oh that kind of hurting we have to go back down but that's okay you're looking at what the pain in your leg is doing exactly this is making the pain in your leg worse or it's making it go down even further this is not the right thing to do then we're gonna have to try something else exactly all right so let's say just worked out fine Brad now we're going to go ahead and jump into the press up there and do these you know for a minute if you want I just did it with Jesus someone last week and he could do the pressure point got about this high you know not even a high by him up to here and you do baby press up because it hurts well I said just do some more and by the time he got to ten he was up to here okay and the paints are going out of his foot and out of his leg it was a good day what you're trying not to do is do this to lift up your pelvis you're keeping the pelvis down gently working it this way that's a good point Bob all right the next progression write it Bob before we're going to do that right that was ready for sure there's new people out there having that hi welcome to our channel Bob and bread yeah and today we're going to you know want you to encourage you to go ahead and subscribe to us it might be here yes some people set us up there I don't where some say it's on the screen but take a minute we upload a video every day and it's all on how to have a healthy fit pain-free Zeca not brand perfect alright so after the press up let's see the press ups don't work red you tried half press ups you know and it's just still giving you trouble these are the stubborn ones yeah and now the pain is on side so now where you going to try is what we call the banana sure so I'm going to move my butt over this way now moving my legs over this way and my upper body only this way this all makes sense Brad right now if you look at it from this angle we call it the banana because his body is shaped if you look at it this layer from the top down he's curved and its hips are over to the in this case the left usually if the pain is on the right leg you shift the hip to the left yeah so does my feet are to the right my shoulders are right my hips are to the left make that curve going in now in this position he's way here for a little bit you might get up on the elbow exactly and you might also try the press up yeah and what's going to guide you is if the leg pain is getting better then you go with it yep now let's say you find out this works for you this is the thing that you can do throughout the day for one minute and that's that's the idea behind all these if you if you find out the press ups alone work for you go ahead for one minute you can do those two every hour Brad yep I had a patient I've got to tell a story he was an excellent patient he has his own business he needed to get better fast he in his way from out to Las Vegas and he's having this probably is getting better at the time I said to him every one to two hours in Vegas in a shop it was his wife was shopping for some trinkets whatever he's down on the floor and I got yes he went to a place where there wasn't many people oh my god he got better though I've had people where I've had him take cardboard to work no and they worked on a shop you know like a manufacturer or and they would go down through it he won't hesitate if it works you want to get out or you'll do it now when we say every hour we know you may not be able to do it every hour but if you do it five to six times a day that's that's really helping a lot all right the next one Brad is this one doesn't work she's a banana boy we really got some beeping going on there yeah we're going to go ahead and put the towel underneath the soft side here yep so this is instead of the banana now if the banana don't work you might try putting at all right underneath the pelvis here right so what that does it tilt is the tilt the pelvis a little bit and it changes the force on the back it's going to take that disc that bulging the disc and get it out of the way right and again with this works that you can go ahead and do press okay we're throwing a lot at you here but you know try these step-by-step if you find one that works that's the one you're going to do everyday right alright the next one that you may it was just similar this one brad is actually the roadkill right so this is kind of an unusual name I'm not sure how it got because well you look like roadkill and I guess so I'm bringing just one leg up there one knee up like this so and again I'm gonna lay here I'm going to see if this and you had a patient is just constantly but yeah I use this one over the years a number of times with success yeah so in all this gives you the relief again it left leg and let's leg pain less back not less back pain normally it's usually less leg pain right eventually less back pain and then you can go ahead and do press ups even in this position don't you don't really do so no I'll have them do it for sure but it's just kind of I always tell a person that it's kind of a weird presip because you're not going to go as high but you still follow the same rules if the leg gets better it's okay okay all right this one Brad is a little more advanced let's see a lot of those aren't working for you want to try something new I'm gonna grab a pillow here right this is a mulligan technique and I don't what they do it in McKenzie too but here's my again my involved side by hope you can see that here's the side yeah so we're bringing it up like this Brad and we're going to actually twist over a little bit towards the involved side like this and you're going to see if that gives you some relief one little trick I don't know if you do this one bar but I'll have it put your foot down just lift your butt up and shift it that direction a little bit now set it down and then bring them up down over and sometimes that's tolerated a little better it works a little better it depends on individual things a little hit Brad I didn't know that once I know it works for me sometimes alright so you can give that one a try a different one a little variation this is kind of more of a sleeping one to help you sleep at night you want to grab one more pillow so you can lay on your side that's not painful this is gonna be hard for me because I got my mic here I'm gonna switch oh it's different on the other leg the water sciatic sis-in-law lay on the side that's not painful the painful side is on the side up yep so I'm laying on my side here and I'm going to go ahead and put just two pools underneath the cap underneath the ankle into that foot and believe it or not this often you know lay here for a little bit people often find out that this gives them some relief right yeah I can't haven't figured it out yet I think it works I think it brings it back up into you know a little bit of arch in here that I have to take it away this is another one that we do is called sciatic nerve flossing red eye so again since we got the painful side here this is something you want to be very careful with the static nerve is very tender and you know you don't want to go crazy on this I usually only have people do this once or twice a day right nerves don't like muscles if you stretch them too hard it sounds very uncomfortable this should not be painful red when you're doing it up so what you're gonna do is you're gonna go actually bring the foot up and bring the toe toward you but why you do that you actually bring your head back like this bread yep so so the toll goes towards you the head goes down at the same time then you go down and the head goes down so the Bettany and then the toe points down and yellow what you're doing is flossing a nerve so down toe goes down up head goes up coal goes up down hole goes down head goes down yeah you're just trying to loosen the nerve up yeah your box now if there's some scar tissue on to help judge decrease that so well Brad those are it we made it through the ten already yeah in other we probably got videos on these individual ones as well so just keep on looking at our videos and you're going to find some excellent we go that's going to fit you got playlist we can Jerris all yeah other side nerve some thanks for watching you

Acupressure Therapy : How to Use Acupressure Points for Migraine Headaches

So with difficulty with migraines. Well, I
really feel for you, those could be extremely severe. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of
Oriental Medicine, Physical Medicine Specialist and Pain and Injury Rehabilitation Specialist.
Migraines, I want to make sure that you determine whether you have a migraine or not by listing
of this. Migraines are characterized not only by the severity of the pain, but really you
have other symptoms that go with it. So you might have some nausea, you might have some
balance problems, you might have a little bit of fear of lights or loud noises. Essentially,
this is almost like a whole body headache and they can be quite severe. Migraines are
typically cause by an occlusion or cutting off some of the deepest circulation of the
brain. You got two very small arteries that run up to either side of the vertebrae that
account for only twenty percent of the brain's circulation but it's the most important twenty
percent. So getting those neck muscles as relax as you possibly can is really important.
Also, seeing somebody that specializes like a Neuromuscular Therapist or a Physical Therapist
and working not only the muscles of the neck and tractioning the cervical spine as well,
but also specifically working the first three vertebrae can be very, very important. Now
with migraines there's a few Acupuncture points that you can also use that are quite helpful.
One is located between the bony prominence just underneath the ear and the very back
of the skull, right in between. You're going to notice that the base of the skull, there's
a nice little depth that your finger can sink into. Using this on both sides, going directly
towards the center of the brain can be extremely helpful. Very gently, pressing Du 20, immediately
on the top of the head where the sutras meet can be helpful as well. And using the most

How to Relieve Sciatica | Reflexology

So we're going to start on this outer lateral
aspect of the foot. They sciatic nerve reflex will come down here. I'm just going to show you drawing the whole
line first. Pass through here, it'll continue on, on the
heel of the foot. And then it'll actually wrap around from the
heel of the foot. It'll actually then course up and then all
the way back up here. So you can see it's actually, the reflexes
are going all the way around and then back up again. Someone experiencing pain will actually often
experience a shooting down pain down the outer leg. Sometimes even in the inner leg. So you're going to want to use them walking. With them walking you're just using this joint
going down and back up a little bit. You're going to go in with constant pressure. Just lift up a little bit and then back in
again when you're doing the thumb walking. So we'll start here and we're going to do
it in one sweep. And we'll want to do that with both feet. So start here and you're just going to thumb
walk the sciatic nerve reflex. It can be very intense if somebody either
has a problem in that area or even someone that has tightness in their hips. So you can see now we're coming down here. We're about to wrap around to the heel. So you go through the heel reflex. You're going to pass through now on the inner
side. And from the inner side you can use finger
walking. And I'll show you on the other foot too so
you can see it from that angle. But I'm just continuing and finishing up there. Now we'll do it on the other foot. So on this side we'll be here. So you could actually start this way too. Either side, it doesn't matter. You come down through here. It could be really tender so check in with
your person. And if there is an area of tension just kind
of lighten up your pressure. You could even stop there for a moment and
just hold and then move on. And I always like to, especially when doing
a protocol for a certain area of the body, while we just did the sciatic nerve reflex,
I'll also want to give attention to the lymphatic groin or Fallopian tube reflex for her across
here using finger walking techniques. Do one at a time or both at a time. Sometimes it's a little bit easier if you
come from the medial aspect inside and then come out. I'm using my middle finger here. And of course supporting the foot with my
other hand and my thumb. I'll always give a little extra attention
to the lower back and here on both sides. And then I'll end with a little bit of angle
traction. When ending any protocol it's nice to end
with that solar plexus hold. That's coming up through here right below
the ball of the foot, about midway through, your thumbs press in. Right. Center there, and then you just lean forward
a bit. And that'll be your protocol for relief for
sciatica using reflexology.
