We are back in the groove with another power point presentation, same format, different energy points!
A prescription for intelligence - the neuroacupuncture power point Ya Men
Also known as 'mute's door' and GV-15, this power point is the master point in the treatment of the traditional chinese medicine (tcm) syndrome 'phlegm/fire mists the orifices of the brain'.
Saying that, it should be obvious that anyone with that 'woolly head' feeling is going to benefit from this power point!
Now Master acupuncturists, of course, know so much more about this power point than the
mere tcm understanding.
Being a stand alone, one point neuroacupuncture prescription, the master acupuncturist will use a gold needle for maximum effect (needling technique will be neutral). And that effect will be to open and strengthen an energy gate (known as a window of sky gate) between the brain and the spinal cord, stimulating neural transmissions. The two most stimulated neural pathways using this power point with a gold needle are those affecting the pituitary gland and the vocal chords.
Ya Men is situated on the midline of the nape of the neck, between the spinous processes of C-1 and C-2. So, not difficult to find for everybody. This power point responds to acupressure and so we can all massage ourselves smarter with the tip of a finger!
As an endnote, when you are out and about, just observe people's necks and notice who's napes of the neck are open (energy gate open) and extended and who's are closed and bent (energy gate closed).
A prescription for life - combining Hou Xi, Xuan Zhong and Bai Hui points
Sometimes the battle between life and death can hang on a knife edge! Days, hours, minutes, just not enough time to maybe avert death.
It's at those times that this power point prescription can come in handy. The energy points are needled in a specific order: first hou xi (SI-3) ; second bai hui (GV-20) ; third xuan zhong (GB-39) according to the principles of Heaven-Earth-Man.
Hou Xi is the master point of the extraordinary meridian Du Mai (Governor Vessel). It stimulates adrenalin at a glandular level.
Bai Hui is the highest energy point of the body and a meeting point for all the yang meridians. It stimulates brain activity.
Xuan Zhong is the meeting point of all the lower limb yang meridians and mobilises red blood cells.
All three together powerfully arouse internal energy movement and therefore internal organ function.
Sometimes it's not all over!
Next power point presentation
Acupuncture is well known as a pain relief treatment, but you have to know what you're doing!
In traditional chinese medicine (tcm) the same old points are used over and over again, and sometimes they are successful, and mostly there is an improvement.
Master acupuncturists go to the next level when it comes to pain.
We'll use the same format, one needle power point acupuncture and a power point combination, to treat angina and knee pain respectively.
Look out for news of the next presentation in this series of power points on our facebook page.
