Calming Stress Quickly

Holding the Neurovascular Points found on the face and scalp, increases the blood flow to specific organs in the body which has a positive affect on those organ's functions.  They were discovered by Dr. Terence Bennett in the 1930's.  Bennett was able to observe these findings by touching various points and seeing the reaction it caused under x-ray fluoroscope and he spent countless hours recording his points and findings.  Unfortunately for Bennett, his research took his life when he passed away from radiation poisoning.

We are blessed to have this information that we can use for our own health benefits.  Here is a chart of the Neurovascular Points and what organs they affect.




HOW I HAVE USED NEUROVASCULAR POINTS

MIGRAINES: 
1) Hold top of the head (Liver, Gall Bladder, Lungs, Heart, Central Meridians) 
2) Hold the largest part of the skull near the top and back of the head (Large and Small Intestines, Circulation/Sex, Kidney Meridians) 
3) Hold behind the ears (Circulation/Sex Meridian)
4) Hold at the base of the skull (Kidney Meridian)
Hold for as long as needed.  You can also hold additional points if needed. 

Give this a try, if you suffer from migraines, you know how much preventing them is a gift.
The neurovasculars increase the energy and circulation to the head.  This works wonderfully, especially if you do it early.  Migraine pain is from the blood vessels in the head expanding because of lack of blood flow and thus oxygen to the brain.  Holding the neurovasculars on the head will increase the blood flow to the head.

LETTING GO OF WORRY AND ANGER:
1) Place one hand on your forehead while
2) Placing the other hand on the base of the back of your skull

If I vent my frustration (even just by thinking about it), while holding these points, it will help the body be calm while thinking about the problem.  If you then think about a solution to the problem, letting go of what you can't control and thinking of what the best thing for you to do would be, this can even help physical pain.  

I have used this for pain in my wrists and found relief after just 15 minutes of thinking the problem through while holding these points. The problem had to do with my using my wrists too much because was doing someone elses job when I should not have been.  Part of the solution was to stop doing that but what surprised me was that the pain went away just by thinking about the solution and calming the body with neurovascular points. 

CALMING THE STRESS RESPONSE:
1) Put both thumbs on the triple warmer points in front of the ears WHILE
2) Resting the pads of all fingers on the forehead

In the fight or flight response to stress, blood leaves the head and goes to the arms to fight or to the legs for flight.  This has a negative affect on the brain, causing the body to release many chemicals that are stressful on the body and it interrupts the thinking process. 

I used this to let go of frustration from another's actions.  This was my first experience using neurovasculars and it taught me the power they have to relieve stress. 

PAIN IN LOWER AREAS OF THE BODY:
1) Hold top of the head (Liver, Gall Bladder, Lungs, Heart, Central Meridians)
2) Hold the largest part of the skull near the top and back of the head (Large and Small Intestines, Circulation/Sex, Kidney Meridians)
3) Hold behind the ears (Circulation/Sex Meridian)
4) Hold at the base of the skull (Kidney Meridian)
Hold for as long as needed.  You can also hold additional points if needed.

Pain is when there is too much energy, getting the energy moving up and through your neck and head will help to disperse that energy.   This is a great way to calm the pain in another area of the body.

I have used this for aching legs from sitting too long.

Strengthen Your Immune System by Strengthening Spleen

When sedating Triple Warmer, it is very important to strengthen spleen to avoid the risk of depression.   Strengthening spleen will also give a tremendous boost to your immune system. 
Begin by holding the inside of the foot  at the bottom of the big toe (right above the "bump") Be sure to use the hand on the same side of your body as your foot  (right hand holds right foot or left hand holds left foot). Hold Spleen 2
AND Using the opposite hand, hold the crease found between your small and ring fingers, Hold Heart 8  Hold for 3 minutes. Repeat on the opposite side of your body.
Finish by holding the control points found on the bottom corners of your big toe. Hold Liver 1 and spleen 1 for 1 1/2 minutes. Repeat on the opposite side of your body.
Another very good way to strengthen your spleen is to massage the neurolymphatic points found from 4" under each arm pit to the lateral sides of the chest.  Here is a picture of all of the neurolymphatic points.



Acupuncture Meridian Cycle Chart

If you tend to wake up during a certain time at night and you can't get back to sleep, you may have issues with a certain organ.  As you know, I have had issues with asthma and my lungs.  After testing, I found out that liver is involved also.  I usually wake up between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. and I am unable to go back to sleep; that is until it's time to get up and then I feel like going back to sleep.  I have been strengthening my liver and lungs and yesterday I decided to put it to the test and was very diligent about holding acupressure strengthening points for liver and lungs many times throughout the day.  I was very happy to wake up to the alarm clock this morning and find that I slept right through. 
Here is the timeline with associated organ/acupuncture meridian:

1am - 3 am ...............Liver

3am - 5 am ...............Lung
5am - 7 am................Large Intestine

7am - 9 am............... Stomach
9am - 11am.............. Spleen

11am - 1pm.............. Heart

1pm…
