Even on a good day, you can suddenly be struck by some annoying malady—aches and pains, a leg cramp, a queasy stomach, sinus congestion, etc.—making you miserable and disrupting your activities. Too bad you don’t have a traveling medicine cabinet with exactly the remedy you need. But guess what? You actually do have such a thing—right at your fingertips!

It’s acupressure. Maybe you know that unlike acupuncture, which stimulates your body’s energy meridians with needles, acupressure does the same thing using simple hand pressure on those same meridians. What you may not know is that you can do acupressure yourself—and relieve a wide variety of symptoms, including pain, nausea, stress…even depression. What’s more, it’s easy. You can press a spot on your hand to diminish arthritis pain anywhere…use a tennis ball to relax painful neck muscles…avert an asthma attack by pressing a place on your arms…pinch a certain spot to quell a queasy tummy…calm stress by grabbing your ankle…tap away an unhealthy food craving….and much more.

Read below for more about all the aches, pains and other ailments you can relieve by using the “medicine cabinet” at your fingertips…
