Would you like to learn a simple and fast routine with acupressure to support and boost your immunity? Chinese Medicine has been treating immune health as well as colds and flus for thousands of years with acupuncture, herbs, moxibustion, and Qi Gong. In this blog, you will learn an acupressure routine with a couple of my favorite acupuncture points that stimulate immune response and give your immunity a boost. It's super simple to do and very effective to help you stay healthy. Plus, it is great for the whole family!
Chinese Medicine And The Immune System
In Chinese Medicine, the immune system and response is categorized as a specific type of Qi called Wei Qi, which means defensive Qi. This Qi is flows close to the skin and acts as the first line of defense from invaders. These invaders are bacterial and viral pathogens that try to enter our body from nose, mouth, eyes, and skin. The Wei Qi will protect us from these pathogens. Our constitutional Zheng Qi also needs to be strong so that our bodies are stronger than these invaders. Pathogens want to drive deep into our bodies and will hide out waiting for us to become weak so they can take advantage. They will go to our organs especially our lungs, nerves, and joints. The most important goal to staying healthy is preventing this from happening.
What Is Acupressure Therapy And How To Do It
This is where having a healthy lifestyle comes into place and using acupressure can give us an advantage. Acupressure is stimulating acupuncture points on the body. By stimulating, I mean more like massaging specific points to produce a certain effect on the body. You can either use your fingers or massage tools to perform acupressure. I prefer just using my fingers, because I can do it anywhere. The goal is to stimulate the points for about 3 minutes. You can do much short times, but more frequently through out the day. These points are excellent on anyone and even children.
Acupuncture Points For Immune Health
I have chosen 2 of my favorite acupuncture points that are known immune boosting points. I have included a video so you can easily find the points. See below.
ST36 Acupuncture Point
is located just below your knee. It is known as the immune-enhancing point by stimulating T-cells, cytokines, and increasing production of white blood cells. This point is located on the stomach channel and as we know most of your immunity is made in the gut. If you would like to learn more, I have include research for the is specific point and it's effects on the immune system.
