Hey!
Is this supposed to work?

No relief?   Try these suggestions: 

1. Check to be certain that you started by selecting the image that best matches the location of pain on your body.  If you can find an image that is a better match try pressing those points.  If your pain moves to a new location after you press the first set of points go back to the previous page, select the image that best matches the new pain location, and try using the new points.

2. Check the general area around the point location by gently pressing to find the most sensitive spot.  Pressing on the most sensitive spot in the area will usually give you the best results.
3. Follow the proper techniques for pressing the points. Press hard enough to feel a connection and then breathe in and out slowly three times while pressing for at least 15 to 30 seconds.  If you do not get any results you should try pressing hard enough that it is quite intense but, please don’t injure yourself.  Breathe into the pain and slowly move the area of the body that you are trying to treat. Take a two minute break and try again.

4. Try points in the same area but, on the opposite hand, foot, leg, or arm.

5. Select another pain location image that is located close to the pain location on your body. Try using these related point selections to see if you get better results
6. Contact an acupuncturist and make an appointment.  An individualized diagnosis may be necessary to resolve your condition.
