The Chinese medicine sees our body as a complex energy system that can be influenced by pressing and massaging certain acupuncture points. These methods alter the energy flow of the organs. The Chinese also believe that putting an ice cube on a point on the neck will improve your overall health, the mood and re-energize the body. The point is located between the tendons in the neck at the base of the skull, just below the ridge of the skull cap at the top of the neck. Acupuncture calls this point Feng Fu – Refuge of the Wind.
Stimulating this point will improve your well-being.
Start by lying on your stomach, and put the ice cube on that point, holding it on for 20 minutes. Secure the ice cube with a bandage or scarf to ensure it doesn’t fall off. After 30-40 seconds, you will feel heat on the point of action.
The method should be repeated twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. The procedure will release endorphins into the bloodstream, so you may experience euphoria during the first few days. However, do not consider the method as a treatment of a condition – it’s a method that will restore balance, rejuvenate the body and strengthen it. Regular stimulation of the Feng Fu point will improve your sleep, mood and overall health.
Besides this, the method can also improve the digestion, and eliminate the pain emanating from toothaches, headaches and joint pain. It will treat asthma, obesity, malnutrition, degenerative spine changes, gastrointestinal diseases, STDs, respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, thyroid gland problems, arthritis, high blood pressure, cellulite, stress, chronic fatigue, depression, menstrual cycle disorders, as well as psycho-emotional disorders.
Note: do not use the method if you have a pacemaker, if you’re pregnant, or if you suffer from epilepsy or schizophrenia.
