To Help Heal and Stop Knee Pain, Chinese Reflexology
Please remember this method is with out the benefit of Acupuncture or Herbs.

First you'll have to accept, One of the core principles of Chinese Medicine is the concept of Qi or life force energy. Similar to how your body has a network of vessels for transporting blood, there’s also a network of channels for the flow of energy in your body.

When Qi (energy), blood and fluids aren’t flowing as they should, this can lead to pain. Generally speaking, in Chinese Medicine, there are two main causes of knee problems.  The first occurs when Qi is blocked and/or stagnant. It’s like the energy is pooling in the knees and there’s too much going on there. This describes a typical knee injury where there’s swelling and throbbing and usually the pain is quite intense.

The second cause of knee problems is not having enough Qi, blood and fluids flowing through the knees. This is usually related to aging or insufficient nutrition and it tends to manifest more as a weakness of the knees.

In both cases, knee pain is a result of a disruption in the normal flow of Qi, blood and fluids through the knees. 

Now, with Chinese Reflexology, your feet tell you where there are Qi disruptions in your body. That’s because your feet house the “master control points” for regulating the flow of energy in your body. When you massage your reflexology points, you stimulate the proper flow of energy in your body. And when energy flows as it should, blood and fluids also flow properly and this supports your body’s natural healing process so that you can feel better faster.

How to Find the Knee Reflexology Point.
The Chinese Reflexology point for the knee is located on the outer edge of your foot where the skin meets the sole. It’s like a circle with a diameter slightly wider than the width of your thumb. To locate this point, use your thumb to feel along the edge of your foot in the area in front of your ankle.

If your knees are sore, you’ll know you’ve found the knee reflexology point when you feel a tender spot.   BINGO, That's The Spot!
Reflexology points are only sensitive when there’s an energy disharmony in the corresponding area of the body, such as one caused by a knee injury. You can measure your healing progress based on the sensitivity of the point. As you heal, the point will feel less sore.

The point on your right foot corresponds to your right knee and the point on your left foot is for your left knee.

OK, How to Massage the Chinese Reflexology Point for the Knee.
You can use either your thumb or the knuckle of your index finger to massage the knee reflexology point.  Press and rub the area using a back and forth motion, from toe to heel and back again.  If you have an acute knee injury, massage the knee reflexology point for 60 seconds, 3 times a day.  

Do this until the acute phase of the injury passes. Then, you can gradually reduce the amount of massage until your knees are healed.  E.g. 60 seconds twice a day reducing down to 30 seconds at a time.

If you’re massaging for chronic knee pain, you will need to massage the reflexology point for your knee for a longer time frame.  Things that are chronic have been ongoing for a much longer time.  
Please understand, it takes your body more time to rebalance itself, but you should notice that the reflexology point is less sensitive after about 2 to 3 weeks.  That’s a good sign.  It means the Qi is starting to flow as it should and your physical body will begin reflecting this soon.

Water in the knee indicates a holding of emotional energy, particularly a resistance to surrender, or there may be too much emotion to cope with and the weight is being carried in the knees.

An inflamed knee indicates something or someone is making you feel irritated or angry, and you will not give in!

A dislocated knee shows a resistance to giving way. The knee can no longer take the pressure, so it collapses and you are unable to maintain your standing.

OK, for some Herbal Medicines, I won't go into the more effective herbs that you need to be measured out for You and Proportioned For Your Condition. 

But I can recommend some other type of herb that don't require a lot of preparation.

Now please understand, normally an Herbalist would Examine you and Evaluate your condition and create packets of this and other Herbs for you.
