According to traditional Chinese medicine, the “chi/qi”or the energy runs through our body along pathways called meridians. When something blocks the chi or causes imbalance, the body gets ill. In order to make the organs more functional and more efficient, we need to increase the flow of the chi through the body.
The meridians have pressure points and they are linked to certain organs in the body. Acupuncture or massaging the points can release the blockage, relieving the tension which is affecting certain organs. All you need to do is press and hold the point to draw the qi into the channel.
If you place ice cube on certain points on the neck, it will improve your health and mood and increase the energy levels. This point can be found between the tendons in the back of the neck, at the base of skull, and the top of the neck, near the hairline base. The acupuncture calls this point Feng Fu, which means Wind Mansion. According to acupuncturists, stimulation of this point will improve overall health and wellbeing.
For starters, you`ll need an ice cube. Sit or lie down on your stomach and apple the ice cube on the Feng Fu point. Hold it or secure it on that place for about 20 minutes. In about 30- 60 seconds, after the initial unpleasant feeling, you`ll fell heat at this point of the neck.
The treatment should be repeated in the morning and in the evening, before going to bed. This will trigger the release of endorphin into the bloodstream, increasing the energy levels. The Chinese medicine claims that this practice will restore the physiological balance and rejuvenate and energize the whole body.
These are only some of the benefits of regular activation of the Feng Fu point:
Improve sleeping quality
Relieve headache, toothache and joint pain
Relieve arthritic pain
Treat gastrointestinal problems
Reduce frequent colds
Treat thyroid disorders
Reduce stress, depression or fatigue
