#FENGFUTHERAPY

Namaste to you, beautiful reader. 

How was your weekend? Anything exciting or upsetting to share? 

Well, mine was definitely different and it is all thanks to the ancient Chinese method of Feng Fu Ice Therapy. 

Confused? Don’t worry, I am here to explain the journey and hope you will try it out and soon. 

Feng Fu involves placing an ice cube on a specific position on the back of your neck for 20 minutes, but I did it for 15 minutes twice a day. 

The Feng Fu point is a pressure point found at the base of the skull, just below the bottom ridge of the skull cap at the top of the neck. Stimulating this point with an ice cube once or twice a day will promote overall health. 

I found this a bit far fetched as I still felt normal after each session and wonder if I did it wrong or was not 100% comfy when I started? (You are meant to lie down on a towel and place the cub on the Feng Fu point and zen out for the required minutes)

History of Feng Fu

Great insight from Davidwolfe.com

Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the belief that energy (chi or qi) flows through and around the body along pathways called meridians. Acupuncturists and others who practice this medicine believe that illness occurs when something either blocks your chi or causes it to become unbalanced. By helping to increase the flow of chi throughout the body, the organs can function more efficiently.

Each meridian in the body corresponds to a different internal organ. Meridians have pressure points, and it’s believed that practicing massage or acupuncture on these points can help release any blocked qi on the meridian, which in turn releases tension in the related organ. Pressing and holding the point draws qi into the channel to invigorate the organ.”

NOTE: This method is not recommended if you have a pacemaker, are pregnant, or have epilepsy or schizophrenia.
