What if you could take something out of your freezer, touch it to your skin, and experience improved mental health, rejuvenated energy, and even younger skin? Would you be interested?
You might think that this is impossible. But traditional Chinese medicine contains a wealth of knowledge that much of modern medicine is just beginning to appreciate. Some of its techniques involve various herbs or procedures that aren't always readily accessible in the West. But when they are, I think it's important to take note.
That's why I like this technique so much. You have all the tools you need already, you can perform it in the comfort of your own home, and it really works. Not only can it help you feel better and look younger in general, it can even help you fight the common cold.
And all you need is an ice cube.
Traditional Chinese medicine discovered long ago that we all have a pressure point at the top of our necks. You'll find it where the bottom ridge of your skull cap meets your neck. This pressure point is called Feng Fu, which translates to "wind mansion" in English. This pressure point was considered so important that the Chinese believed it was important to keep the wind off your neck to avoid getting sick. Walking through any large city in China during the winter, you will see almost everybody, men and women alike, wearing a scarf or wrap around their neck.

Stimulating this pressure point with ice can trigger your body to function at its best. In addition to the benefits listed above, you may experience better sleep, reduced PMS symptoms, better digestion, reduced thyroid issues, and a reduced risk of cardiovascular and lung disease. It can even help with headaches and toothaches.
To use this incredible technique, all you need to do is lie down on your stomach and put an ice cube on the Feng Fu pressure point. Remain in that position for 20 minutes. Try to repeat the process in the morning on an empty stomach and at night before you go to sleep. My 75-year-old Chinese medicine teacher used to recommend doing this for 30 consecutive days, preferably in the summer months. It's a bit of a time commitment but worth it. It is an easy, practically free way to improve your health and your skin from the inside out.
I have to admit that in general, I'm not a fan of random ice use. But it's not because it doesn't work. It's because I'm somebody who does not like intense cold. However, in this case, the ice does stimulate. And it can work wonders for free.
