Have you been suffering from chronic pain in your shoulders, back, lower back or other parts of your body? We came across this ultra-simple method of relieving pain from these areas. Of course, this is something you can apply on yourself, but if your condition is serious or the pain is debilitating, we’d still recommend that you go to a doctor to get yourself checked out.
So, what does this super simple method consist of, and what do you need? You’d need your ears, and a clothespin. That’s all. According to what we found, the method works based on reflexology, where you remove pain by pushing on several points found on the body.
A simple illustration would be you placing your thumb and index fingers on the top of the bridge of your nose and applying pressure, this would go a long way in relieving that bad headache that you have.
