You hate the taste of medicine but you are having a bad headache and rushing to finish your work. What do you do?

Also known as zone therapy, this alternative method has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its ability to alleviate pain. Some of its most common health benefits include improved circulation, reduced stress, and alleviation of allergy symptoms. If you prefer skipping the pills or if access to medicine is limited wherever you happen to be, relieving common discomfort or pain in your body through hand reflexology may just do the trick. Take a look here for four illustrated tricks you can try in order relieve a headache, ease your neck and back pain, prevent a cold, or even fend off your insomnia.
