Put Ice Cube on The Neck 2 Times a Day and Improve Your General Health! It’s Simple!
Ice Cube can do a lot for our general health! Sounds simple but try this simple method and you will be amazed! Energy (chi or qi) according to the Traditional Chinese medicine flows through and around our body along pathways that we call meridians. People who practice Acupuncture and other practices actually believe that sickness or illness happens when something blocks our chi or something causes it to “ruin” the balance. By helping to increase the energy flow throughout our body, our organs can function in more efficient way.
Each pathway or meridian in our body in fact corresponds to a different internal organ. These meridians have pressure points, so people believe that practicing acupuncture or massage on these points can help release any blocked qi on the meridian. That is how we release tension in the related internal organ. Pressing and holding little bit the point draws qi into the channel to revitalize the organ.
We can improve our mood, health and energize or boost our body simply by placing an ice cube on few point which are located on the neck. If you practice acupuncture or massage, or you simply want to try it, this is a very easy, quick and safe method to explore the Chinese medicine theory at home.
The point on the neck is close to the base of the hairline, at the top of the neck or at the base of the skull. This point, in acupuncture, is named Wind Mansion or Feng Fu. People who practice acupuncture believe that by stimulating this point we can promote general health and overall well-being.
For start, all we need for this simple practice is an ice cube.
You can lie or sit on your stomach and put only one ice cube on the neck, on the Feng Fu point. Hold it there for 20 minutes, or put something like scarf or bandage to hold it. At the beginning, the cold will feel unpleasant, but in 30-60 seconds you will be able to feel the influx of heat to the point on your neck.
Every morning or before you go to bed, you can repeat this simple method. You will create energy by stimulating the release of endorphins into the bloodstream. According to Chinese medicine, this practice can actually restore and then maintain physiological balance. In the same time it can strengthen, rejuvenate and energize the body.
People believe that putting Ice Cube or constant activation of the Feng Fu point also can:
- Improve the quality of sleep
- Eliminate frequent colds
- Improve the digestive system
- Decrease toothache, headache and joint pain
- Improve breathing
- Cure gastrointestinal problems
- Manage disorders with thyroid
