In the last post I suggested that you can DIY certain acupuncture points and treat yourself. Today let’s talk about the Five Tigers and how to use them.
The allergic reaction that people have is the bodies’ way to recognize the fact that there appears to be a foreign invader present. This reaction can occur as hives, rashes, breathing difficulty, swollen and red eyes are all really common symptoms.
The Five Tigers come from the Tung Style school of Acupuncture. They are especially useful treating foot and heel pain, but can also be used for finger and palm pain, sciatica, and those of you with carpel tunnel may find them useful as well.
You’d think short legs wouldn’t be a problem. Less body to nourish and protect, right? But according to the online article, “The Ten Weirdest Clues to Your Body’s Health,” that’s not the case!
There are Acupuncture tips about different breed that have their tails docked. Puppies are usually between 2 to 5 days old when it is done without the benefit of anesthesia or any pain medication. At that time the “dewclaws” are removed, also.
Then place the middle finger of one hand on Liver 4 (a little dip in front of the anklebone) and the middle finger of the other hand on Lung 8 (on the crease of the wrist just below the thumb).
The main idea with this list is to recognize that when your health isn’t there, ALL of the other areas of your life are affected. Consequently, the need to put in pockets (reserves) for your health is paramount.
