Look, we all get it - Nursing IS NOT EASY.
You're working hard, busting your butt all day.
Running around for 12 hours, lifting overweight patients, cleaning them up, and doing all sorts of thankless work!
All of this isn't just mental stress but physical as well! Plus, unfortunately, a lot of aches and pains that add up at the end of the night!
We COULD go on and on, but let's talk about a simple, amazing solution that at the Nurses Only Club, we have come up with:
1. Acupressure is all natural
Nothing unnatural - no pills or anything. No side effects. Nothing weird.
Acupressure works by producing endorphins and blood flow in the areas affected. This creates almost a "hurts so good" type feeling that ends up relieving stress and pain!
2. Acupressure is proven.
Many features about modern medicine are amazing...
But when we asked on Facebook, over 85% of nurses agree that our patients are way overmedicated!
Let's be real - there are some real issues we have to sort out.
Acupressure has been PROVEN to work even by mainstream groups like WedMD and MayoClinic. Meanwhile, alternative therapist sites are in love with the idea as well.
3. Acupressure has been done for 1000s of years.
Acupressure has been a part of Chinese medicine for 1000s of years.
The Chinese thought that there were meridians, or parts that had to be stimulated to balance out the yin and yang.
Whether you believe this or not, the science is there that it improves circulation and releases endorphins.
And if the Chinese did it for 1000s of years they must have had a great reason!
4. It can be done from the comfort of your home - for VERY little.
You can go to an expensive acupressure therapist - but this will cost thousands of dollars very quickly.
Or - believe it or not - you can do acupressure from home.
We've designed a mat especially for that purpose!
We call it the Nightingale Mat - because it was designed with our nurses in mind!
5. Acupressure is PERFECT for nurses
If you use our Nightingale mat properly, you will get all natural pain relief in just 10 minutes at the end of your shift.
It can be combined with yoga or meditation, and can be done during your off days or (if you get a chance to sit down) even during your work breaks.
And because of its proven pain relieving methods, this method is great.
