Coconut Shell Therapy
I visited a Burmese friend's house in Ann Arbor and found coconut shells, which they use for medicinal purposes. A lot of people use that in Burma including my family. So I thought I would take a photo and write about it.
To be honest, I don't know the science and the details on how it works. It is believed that applying pressure to the feet is good to temporarily relieve headache and dizziness caused by high blood pressure or some other problems. Just like a massage can make you relax, standing on coconut shells can make you feel good because it is like applying pressure to the nerves, veins and arteries in your feet.
If you know more and the details on how it works, please leave a comment or let me know.
