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

How TENS Can Help With Sciatica

(lively guitar music) – Hi everyone, welcome back to Dr. Ho's
healthy living vlog. We actually have Dr.
Ho here with us today, hi, Dr. Ho.
– Hi Kathe, hi everyone. – Now Dr. Ho's here to answer
a very important question we get a lot from everyone out there. What is sciatica? – Sciatica is back pain, that spreads to your hip and to your leg. It could be a numbing
pain, a burning pain, and even like a stabbing pain. It can be disabling. Now, sciatica is caused by tight muscles in your back and in your pelvis. In order to get relief,
we have to reeducate the alignment of your lower back with the relaxed back
muscle and the hip muscle and we have to promote better circulation of the sciatic nerve. Now you may wonder, what
else can cause sciatica? You could have a herniated disc, in that case we have to do decompression, or if you're sitting wrong we have to teach you how to sit right. – Okay so, is that why so many
people suffer from sciatica, because we're sitting wrong? – Sitting can cause poor
posture, tight muscle, deterioration of the disc,
which can cause back pain and numbing pain in your leg. Absolutely, we have to
teach you how to sit right. – Okay, so you're gonna show
us right now how to sit right? – Absolutely, follow us. One of the best way to relieve
your back pain and sciatica is to use my pain therapy device. This device will output
over 300 different types of pain relieving wave. And what it does, it relaxes the muscle and improve the circulation
and relieve the pain. By putting the big patch
here, in the low back, help to relieve your low back pain. Hold this for me please, Kathe, thank you. By putting the big patch here
on the back of your buttock, and the back of your leg, will help to relieve that numbing,
shooting pain in your leg. By using both together on a regular basis, your back and your leg will feel great. – So Dr. Ho, I'm using the
tense machine on my back, but I find that I get a
numbing pain in my leg when I sit for a long time, is there something else I can be doing? – Absolutely, you know when you sit, it can cause back pain
because you can slouch. Now I highly recommend you
use my perfect back rest and the attached cushion
on your office chair and even in your car. Now by sitting against this, it help to realign your lower back spine and the rest of your posture. By doing that, we take
pressure off the disc, we take pressure off your
joint, and most important, we help to relax the muscle
to relieve your back pain and that numbing pain in your leg. Because when you don't sit right, you put pressure on that disc, you put pressure on the nerve, and you can get serious pain. Now we use it together tense
unit, that is the best. – Okay, so Dr. Ho, this is
the same perfect back rest that was just on the chair
but we're on the ground now, can we use this on the ground? – The perfect back rest
is the perfect tool to realign your spine,
to reshape your spine so if you use this every day, you could be a spine very healthy, help to relieve back pain,
and sciatic pain too. Now go ahead and use it. Now first of all, yeah, pull
that against your buttock, and just go ahead and lean right back, go lay right down, and feel
it reshaping your lower back. – Oh, wow!
– What's– (laughs) – Yeah there's like a lot of support there that I'm not used to when I lie down. – Exactly, now, when you sit,
your spine, your low back, becomes too straight, by
putting a back rest here, I'm actually reshaping the low back to restore the curvature which reduce the pressure in the disc,
reduce the back pain, and especially for a herniated disc, reduces sciatic pain down the leg. So you're gonna love to do this every day. It just keeps your spine nice and healthy. – Dr. Ho, thank you so
much for teaching us about what sciatica is,
how to relieve that pain, and how to just kind of sit properly so we're not constantly in pain. Any kind of last words of
advice for everyone out there? – Well my mission in life is
to help you relieve your pain so you can live a better life, a more active and healthy
life, with less pain. So, look after yourself, please. – That's great advice. Alright, we'll see
everyone next time, bye. (lively guitar music)

Acupressure Points to Relieve Neck Tension

>> Hi. I'm Dr. Elizabeth Manejias. I am a physiatrist and acupuncturist
at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Thank you for joining me today. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. I'd like to share a few tips to help
alleviate neck tension and promote relaxation through acupressure techniques
that you can do at home. The first point is called
KAB 20 or gall bladder 20. The best way to find this point is to
position the thumbs at the base of your skull. You'll find two small, bony bumps,
one on each side, left and right. Move right beneath those bony bumps to find an
area that is soft and perhaps a little tender. You can use your other fingers to massage your
skull while you are also massaging below these bony areas. Massage in small, circular
motions for two to three minutes. The next point is called your
GB or gallbladder 21 point. It is located midway between the
base of your neck and your shoulder in a muscle called your trapezius. You can use two to three fingers
to apply firm pressure and small, circular motions to your trapezius
muscle again for two to three minutes. You can do the same thing to the other side. Small, circular motions for
two to three minutes. Another great point for neck tension, headaches, upper back tension is called your large
intestine four point, or your LI-4 point. This point should be avoided
if you are pregnant, however. It is located between your thumb and
your index finger in the muscle belly that is soft and perhaps also tender. You can apply small, circular
motions for two to three minutes. And then you can switch to the other side,
again, for two to three minutes, small, circular motions with enough pressure to find
an area that is slightly tender to touch. Another great point for neck pain
is your small intestine three point. If you make a fist and just above the
outer edge of the bone in your hand, you'll find the meaty area in the muscle. And you can apply firm pressure, two to
three minutes, small, circular motions. And same thing the other side. Step off the bone in the outer edge of the
hand into a soft, meaty area of the muscle. Small, circular motions for
two to three minutes. That's all I have for you today. Thank you so much for listening and stay well.

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 : Acupressure Point for Headaches

"Wow, I really seem to be having this problem
with my head". Having problems with headaches? My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental
Medicine, Physical Medicine Specialist and International Speaker. Headaches can sometimes
be a symptom of larger problems but if you're watching this now, I'm kind of assuming that
you're having generalized head pain or maybe specific patterns of pain that are going on
in the head. I'm going to give you a couple of acupressure points that can help with that.
I do want to mention also that many times a good massage or neuromuscular therapist,
specifically, can help with any type of headaches that you have that occur in regular patterns
or regular intervals throughout the day or the week. Some of the points that can help,
from an acupressure standpoint, specifically, one directly between the bony prominence underneath
the ear and the back of the head, there's a little spot between the muscles that you'll
find that's soft. This soft spot, pressing directly up and towards the center of the
skull, gallbladder twenty-one, is excellent for headaches of all sorts. You can use it
on one side or on both sides, stimulating for approximately one to two minutes at a
time. The second point that's really good for head pain, a common cold, busting the
immune system, is a point, LI4, that's directly between the web of the hand, pressing towards
the palm of the hand. As you press this what you're going to feel is a deep dull ache,
that's going to help with anything that has to do with facial pain, head or neck pain.
Now remember, headaches, if going on for several days, if they become severe, if they are accompanied
with nausea or especially if they're accompanied with fever, are something that may need to
be checked out by your health provider. My name is Doctor Mark Brinson, wishing you balance
in your life.

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
powerful point, for pain of all sorts, especially pain in the head, Li 4 can be really helpful
as well. It's found right in the web of the hand, pressing towards the center of the palm.
You can use each of these in thirty second cycles up to three to five minutes and that
should help reduce some of your pain. But remember, seeking a qualified health professional
to help you with migraines can be very important and you don't have to live them. None of these
issues can be resolve very quickly. My name is Mark Brinson, Doctor of Oriental Medicine,
wishing you a balance and happy day.

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

How to Relieve Headaches u0026 Migraines | Reflexology

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.
