Place Ice on This Point 2 Times a Day and Something Amazing Will Happen to Your Body!

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.

It is believed that you can improve your health, mood and energize your body by placing an ice cube on a certain point located on the neck. If you practice massage or acupuncture, or you’ve been wanting to try it, this is a quick, easy and safe way to explore the theory of Chinese medicine at home.

The point on the neck is found between the tendons in the back of the neck, at the base of the skull and the top of the neck, close to the base of the hairline. In acupuncture, this point is called Feng Fu or Wind Mansion. Acupuncturists believe that stimulating this point promotes overall well-being. To begin, all you need is an ice cube.feng fu

Either sit or lie on your stomach and put one ice cube on the Feng Fu point on the neck. You’ll want to hold it there for twenty minutes, or secure it with something such as a bandage or a scarf. The cold will feel unpleasant at first, but within 30-60 seconds you should be able to feel the influx of heat to the point on your neck.

You can repeat this method in the morning and before bed to stimulate the release of endorphins into the bloodstream and create energy. According to Chinese medicine, this practice can restore and maintain physiological balance, while rejuvenating, strengthening and energizing the body. Regular activation of the Feng Fu point is also believed to:

  • Improve the quality of sleep
  • Improve the digestive system
  • Eliminate frequent colds
  • Decrease headache, toothache and joint pain
  • Improve breathing
  • Cure gastrointestinal problems
  • Manage thyroid disorders
  • Help with asthma
  • Aid in the relief of arthritis
  • Manage menstrual disorders
  • Help manage stress, fatigue and depression

It should be noted that this method is not recommended if you have a pacemaker, are pregnant, or have epilepsy or schizophrenia. Check out the video below to learn more about using the ice method to energize your body by stimulating the Feng Fu point.

This is irresponsible. As a a licensed acupuncturist, I can assure you, Traditional Chinese medicine is against the use of the application of ice. Do not use our medicine to suit your publicity. It’s irresponsible and wrong.This is PATENTLY A BAD A IDEA.

i have used accupressure on a lot of people and it has always worked . having said that the guy in the vidio is doing it wrong because he is using a bandana and putting pressure on more points , i dont consider that a trial. however Cedron. i also know accupuncture and you should Know there is a variation to both arts. never dismiss something that could be legit. try it yourself and then speak up. otherwise you come across as a ignorant Accupuncturist.

    Hahahaha. This is rich. I’m a also a licensed acupuncturist and, unlike Alex, I often like getting into verbal spars with internet trolls.

    I particularly love how you, the un-trained and un-licensed, call the fully qualified licensed acupunctirst ignorant.

    But this… hahahahaha… this…. OMG
    “I know ‘accu’puncture.”

        appearantly both of you are ignorant, not only do i know your job ,but all natural medicin that i have studied for more then 25 years .not a single modality can cure any thing just like no single herb can either .it is always a combo of things combined. I opted not to get any degrees because im writing books and as a ND or any other doctor degree i get muzzled by the goverment of what i can say and cant..and yes i do fight for our rights to treat people and to let people make their own health care desicions and be dictated by our goverment. And Kevin if you think people are trolls because they dont agree with you or know more then you ,then you need to wake up and smell the coffee, because there are always people better then you or me. and yes im writing 4 books, and yes i will mention all modalitys so everyone can make informed desicions.

          I’d actually be honest and say that I, myself, fall on the spectrum of internet troll. I was mostly riffing off of what Alex said.

          It boggles my mind that you keep calling educated people ignorant.

          Any trained acupuncturist will tell you that you cannot learn acupuncture from books. In fact, during the first week of my formal education, our instructor told us that by the time we finish our 4 years Master’s degree (5 years for most) we would know just enough about acupuncture to start learning what it is really all about. I have found the statement to be true.

          Trolling ahead:
          Where was anyone talking about about any modality being a panacea? I think you didn’t opt for any degrees because you have basic comprehension problems.

          hmm comprehension problem is more up your alley. i call any one ignorant who stops learning behond what they learned or received a degree in . some people call that close minded. and no im not impressed with any degree period. and yes i know how long it takes for accupuncture schooling. since i lived in Cali and the best one is in Buena park,CA. also who said i only read books? Studieing implies hands on or reading. And it boogles my mind that someone like you is a accupuntureist and hates people who have different views or opinions. may want to take some self improvement classes. being negative and verbaly assault people is unbecoming to anyone. Have a nice life.

          Once again, you are imagining you see things which are not there.

          Stop learning… me? lol. But, maybe, I think you think there is more for me to learn about fengfu. You think that the website of a reality TV personality has a more accurate picture of fengfu’s effects than hundreds upon hundreds of years of tradition and experience. You are wrong.

          Also, there are actually three acupuncure schools in CA ranked higher than South Baylo. It is ranked 22nd overall n the US. But, why not go ahead and print out a copy of this web page and take it over to the profs at South Baylo and ask them what they think?

          I do not hate people who have different views or opinions. I actually love people with different views or opinions which are rooted in enough integrity, logic or practicability to prove me wrong. It means I can grow. Having it out with people on the internet is one way I test the integrity or logic of their argument. I’m not learning from you. But I do not hate you. This is an act of tough love.

          Verbally assaulting people… You drew first blood. I rose to the challenge.

          And please… please… for the love of Qi Bo, learn to spell acupuncture.

          last time, i give you credit for knowing that school. but for me it was over 20 years ago. again you are not listening to what i write ,you are reading into it and there is nothing to read into. and 2ndly i have nothing to prove to anyone .gave that up a long time ago. people wil think and do whatever they want. and no i did not draw first blood you did by again reading into things. and yes i do know how to spell TY. just dont bother some times. and anyone that knows me ,knows integrety and honor is what i live by all my life. soooo whatever your opinion is of me i dont care. you have your own walk in life and maybe in 20 years now you will wake up.

I sincerely hope that everyone reading this realizes that the article has more holes than Swiss cheese. As a university professor and Licensed Acupuncturist in New York and Connecticut, I am particularly disturbed by the use of the word “cure” in the list of potentially treatable ailments. I am also baffled as to how anyone could put this information on the internet without citing any sources. If you have any questions about the functions and indications of acupuncture points, please speak with a licensed practitioner. Last but not least, I do not like to get into verbal spars with internet trolls, but if you are going to attack a licensed practitioner, you should at least learn how to spell correctly.

        Of course it is the best he can do. He obviously can’t follow the research which proves acupuncture’s effectiveness, and he also can’t follow the trends where hospitals are increasingly making acupuncture available to their patients.

I did not read this article and assume anything about a “cure”. I took it as a way to learn something and enjoyed it! Way to people have to get so bent out of shape oover nothing so much? Chill out!

    Kevin Leonard - June 14, 2016

    I think it is wonderful that you did not assume anything about a cure when reading this article. However, I’m not so suure that the rest of the internet will be so astute. And when you say that you learned something from the article, unless you were just talking about the basic description of acupuncture and the name and location of fengfu, I’m afraid you have been misinformed.

    And this is not “nothing so much” in an age when acupuncture is working hard to earn its legitimacy in the Western mindet. Other people will read this and think there is a cure and try the technique. When they end up with a headache and no improvement of their symptoms, they will think that their experience proves that acupuncture does not work.

    So, I’m really not sure why you think that when licensed acupuncturist try to correct bad information about their professionm they are getting “bent out of shape”. As for being called ignorant and a quack, maybe you can understand why that might get on someone’s nerve.

Sorry but this is not an exact method. Only half of it. At the same time, you have to put another piece of ice on the second point on your body. Making this you creating (electric like) circuit for stimulating certain glands, which will injects the endorphines in your blood stream.
