How to naturally raise your energy levels through acupuncture
I wanted to introduce to you one of my all time favourite points, for you to perhaps do a little acupressure on yourself. Let me know how you get on.
Bai Hui 百會 // Hundred Convergences
A beautiful point and all around favourite for patients. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we consider this point to raise Yang – our energy or Qi – our internal fire and driving force that keeps us approaching each day with spirit and gusto.
It also helps to calm this the Shen – our mind – when we can no longer switch off and it’s effecting our mental/emotional state.
In between treatments, I often recommend some highly effective acupressure points for patients to self-administer and this is one of them. Need a little boost on rising or struggling to switch off at night? This point is located approximately on the midpoint of the line connecting the apexes of both ears. Rest and hold for 3-5 minutes, calm your Shen and feel your Yang Qi surge.
