What happens when you place an ice cube on your neck
Chinese traditional medicine says that a combination of the Feng Fu point and ice therapy may rejuvenate the entire body. Stimulating this point with an ice cube may help you to get more energy and consequently be more healthy. Sounds amazing! Simply place an ice cube on the Feng Fu point every day.
Below are some of the benefits of this procedure.
It can reduce headaches and pain
The Feng Fu point is associated with healing headaches, low energy, and dizziness. Placing pressure, heat, or ice on the right pressure points can stimulate energy. This energy is directed against pain. Ice, however, is the best solution against headaches.
It can reduce PMS
Acupuncturists claimed a long time ago that there was a connection between the base of the skull and PMS symptoms. And when you use pressure or ice to stimulate the Feng Fu point, it helps to reduce the syndrome, including cramps and mood jumps. This point also has a direct relationship with the body’s menstrual cycle and stimulating it can normalize the process in case of a problem.
It can improve sleep quality
Per Chinese medical books, the Feng Fu point helps to improve one’s quality of sleep. This important control center is responsible for activities done in deep sleep. It may help you to fall asleep quicker and not wake up in the middle of the night. As a result, your body rests more and changes its sleeping habits for the better.
It can reduce stress.
This point manages psycho-emotional disorders, depression, and stress. Users say that after stimulating this point stress levels and anxiety become less. Of course, if you stimulate the Feng Fu point, it won’t cure psychological diseases, but by rejuvenating the body it can give a jolt to your life and consequently, you’ll want to live better.
It can help your digestion.
This area manages important processes in our bodies like swallowing and salivation. Consequently, it may help us to digest food better. In addition, it may reduce abdominal pain, inflammation and cramping.
Chinese people may be onto something when it comes to long living. You can try Chinese acupuncture or mix it with ice therapy.
