Did you know that the traditional Chinese medicine is based on the belief that the Chi or Qi energy flows through the body – through pathways called meridians? Well yes, and these experts think that if these meridians are blocked, it can cause some health problems and diseases. So, in order to improve the flow of the Chi or Qi and cure all diseases, the Chinese medicine practices acupuncture and acupressure. Well yes, and you should also know that each meridian in the body is connected to a certain organ. They also have pressure points, which when massaged or treated with acupuncture or acupressure, release the blocked energy, and thus cure any disease related to that certain organ.
Ice Cube Treatment
How this works – well, according to the Chinese medicine, in order to improve the energy flow and boost overall health, you should place an ice cube on a certain part of the neck. By doing so, the mood also improves and energy levels increase. And, before you try this technique, you should know that it’s completely harmless, safe, and easy to do at home. Thus, you can enjoy the benefits of the traditional Chinese medicine without going to the acupuncturist or acupressurist. And, one more thing – this neck point is placed at the back of the neck between the two tendons, right under the skull base which is near the hairline. This powerful point is called Feng Fu, but it is also known as Wind Mansion.
Here’s what you need to do – it’s very simple: you just have to lie on your stomach and place an ice cube on the Feng Fu point. In order to prevent the ice cube from slipping away, you may either hold it or place a bandage over it. Keep it for 20 minutes and do the treatment twice a day, once in the morning and once before you go to bed. And don’t panic, because you might not feel as comfortable during the first minute due to the cold, however, as the time passes by you will start to feel the influx of heat at the Feng Fu point.
