G-Jo: First Aid Without Needles

Strain your back or kink your neck? There are lots of self-care techniques to get a client through until he can get a massage. One is an acupressure technique that can be used as first aid.

G-Jo means "first aid" in Chinese, and the technique originated in the Orient thousands of years ago. It's a primary form of finger pressure acupuncture (or acupressure), and—with a little reading and practice—you can learn enough G-Jo to avoid much needless suffering and become more nearly independent of doctors and drugs ... especially if your lifestyle is already a healthful one.

However, while G-Jo is great for both acute and emergency symptoms, it's not so effective for chronic problems ... those which have been a part of the sufferer's life for more than, say, several weeks, or those that seem to reoccur with regularity.
