Looking to boost your energy, feel younger, and rejuvenate your body in general? According to Chinese acupuncturists, all you need is an ice cube and the correct pressure point. That pressure point, known as Feng Fu, is believed to be a kind of sweet spot for balancing the body, aiding in the prevention of disease and much more. And it’s located right at the base of the scalp – where most people find a slight indentation.
Here’s how it works according to Beauty Health Page:
Lie flat on the stomach and place an ice cube on the Feng Fu spot or the hole located at the back of your head. Also, you can sit. Hold the ice cube for 20 minutes and you can secure it with a scarf, bandage or anything else. Repeat this in the morning before you drink or eat anything and before you go to bed at night. You should do a 2-day pause between two treatments and don’t worry, you won’t get a cold.
So what are the exact benefits of practicing this strategy? Most notably, people have noticed immediate euphoria in the first few days because of the rush of endorphins into the bloodstream. But also, doing this could help you to relieve headaches, banish colds and get better sleep. You should also notice an improved mood all around.
It’s important to note something that we’ve seen on a few sites that talk about the benefits of icing the Feng Fu point. Do not try this if you have a pacemaker, if you are pregnant or have schizophrenia or epilepsy.
