For thousands of years, people have been used acupuncture and acupressure as an alternative treatment for a long list of health issues and reduce the symptoms of certain conditions. These techniques are not rocket science; the way they function is actually very simple. If you have problem with some organ you just need to locate its corresponding point and massage it, because, every organ in our body is linked to a certain point through channels of energy.
Chinese people believe that in our body we have pathways through which energy pass. These pathways are called Meridians. Acupuncturists say that when this chi/qi is halted that is when ailments arise.
All of our organs are linked to meridians and every meridian has pressure point. These points should be free so that the chi/qi can flow without obstructions and it will improve our health.
It is recommended to place some ice on pressure points along the meridian situated on the neck and it will boost your health and improve your mood.
Where is the Pressure Point Located?
It is located between the tendons situated at the base of the skull and top-back of the neck which is about at the base of the hairline.
This point is known as Wild Mansion or Feng Fu
Place one ice-cube on this point and hold it for 20 minutes.
