Traditional Chinese medicine has discovered a point in our body when stimulated, promotes overall well-being.

This point called Feng Fu, and is the pressure point located behind the head, at the base of the skull, on top of the neck.

Why am I talking about this point? I’m going to give you a life hack: putting an ice cube to the back of your upper neck (Feng Fu point) is a game changer.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, this method restores the body’s natural physiological balance - giving a strong injection of life, rejuvenating the whole body.

Technique of applying an ice cube on a Feng Fu point:

Choose a comfortable position on your stomach.

Apply an ice cube once or twice a day for 20 minutes.

If this works better for you, you can use a cloth or a plastic bag to make an ice cube.

After 30 seconds at this moment, you will start to feel slightly warm.

In the first few days, there is a slight feeling of euphoria due to the release of endorphins.

Benefits from using this method include:

  • Reduction of headaches, teeth and joint problems
  • Helps regulate blood pressure problems (hypertension and hypotension)
  • Regeneration in the digestive system
  • Restore sleep and mood
  • Relieving gastrointestinal problems
  • Relieving neurological and psycho-emotional disorders: chronic fatigue, stress, depression, insomnia, etc.

This method is also said to improve:

  • Braking spinal degeneration changes
  • Recovering from breathing problems
  • Helps inhibit cardiovascular problems
  • Elimination of common colds
  • Stabilization of thyroid disorders
  • Relieves asthma attacks
  • Recovery from obesity and malnutrition disorders
  • Alleviating disorders related to coldness, impotence, and infertility
  • Recovering after menstrual problems

For maximum benefit, professional acupuncturists recommend doing the treatment twice a day – first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

Stay well.
