How To Use Hand Pressure Points To Get Rid Of Pain, Nausea & Stress

Many people, ancient and living today, believed that most of the body's ills comes from disharmony inside of the body.

That disharmony can be achieved through bad diet, bad habits, and poor thoughts.

Jin Shin Jyutsu, which is an ancient art of mending from Japan, uses certain pressure points to create harmony again in your body.

Lest you think this practice is anything less than scientific, the UC San Diego School of Medicine's Integrative Medicine Center offers the following explanation:
