power points and master acupuncture
and thank you for all the positive feedback on this series of power point presentations, much appreciated.
So, here goes with our third presentation!
mastering the pain of angina with the power point Xi Men
Also known as 'door of opposition' and PC-4, this power point regulates the blood and energy flow to the heart.
As western medicine now knows, angina is a referred pain resulting from a narrowing of the coronary arteries which are then unable to deliver quantities of oxygenated blood on demand.
This referred pain travels from the heart along the Pericardium energy meridian.
Xi Men works by dilating the coronary arteries and expanding the diaphragm, responding to oxygenation demands made upon heart muscle.
Medical Qigong, especially dragon tiger qigong, is recommended in tandem with treatment by Xi Men.
mastering knee pain with the 'four eyes of qi' power points
the 'four eyes of qi' power points are located as shown (see the four black dots)
The knee joint is the most complicated joint in the human body. Not only that, it has to bear our body weight whether we are standing still or are on the move!
In clinical master acupuncture practice our findings are that 85% of knee pain responds favourably to treatment with the 'four eyes of qi'.
You can even gain some relief from knee pain by finding these points yourself (as with most joint energy points you will find them in small grooves or clefts around the joint) and applying finger acupressure to these power points. Stimulate with some vigour to obtain temporary pain relief.
Follow up the 'four eyes of qi' treatment by firstly using standing medical qigong exercise, and the secondly, once pain levels reduce, use moving medical qigong exercises.
Sadly, in the very mental civilisation that we live in today, the tendency is for mental activity to dominate physical activity, resulting in ungrounded living!
Much knee pain could be prevented by not using the knee joint as a weight bearing joint, but rather as a weight transference joint, transferring body weight to the soles of the feet. Hence, the advice to practice medical qigong exercise.
Further long term advice for those suffering chronic knee pain is to drink horsetail grass tea. A pot of tea a day for three months is said to regenerate cartilage tissue in the body - knee cartilage erosion is a big factor in this type of knee pain.
next power point presentation
Master acupuncture goes 'mental' in our next power point presentation.
We reveal the yin and yang depression formulae and the point that gets you high!
Until then, may we all be blessed with health and harmony.
