  • 4.1 crown point junction of hundred energy channels

    Crown Point 1

    I.  Head

    A.  Crown Point (Fig. 4.1)

    This is located in the center of the crown; in the fontanelle area of an infant’s skull there may still be a slight depression. The crown point is the junction of one hundred channels through which the energy of the body passes. Massage this area with both your middle fingers. This will relieve dizziness and headaches, which result from too much energy in the head. It also relieves high blood pres­sure and stimulates the nervous system.

  • 4.2 knocking the head

    Knock the Head 2

    C.  Knock the Head (Fig. 4.2)

    Hit the head with the knuckles of the hand, knocking all around the head. Knocking the head lightly can help to clear your head, elimi­nate stubbornness and make your thinking sharper. Many of our students use this knocking of the head to release the pressures that they have from today’s life of fast, advanced technology and the feeling of always having to keep up. This is especially true of those graduate students who feel a great deal of pressure and stress in keeping up with their studies. Each year students com­mit suicide because the pressures and stress accumulate too much in their heads, making them unable to think clearly: they start to feel everything in their society as too much pressure, which leads to worry, fear, sadness, and many, mixed emotions. The simple knocking of the head can release pressure and stress that accu­mulate there.

(Fig. 4.13) These exercises will reduce headaches in the front and in the temples. Find the painful point and massage it until the pain is gone.

  • 4.14 mouth massage

    Mouth Massage 14

    Mouth

    Depression makes the corners of the mouth drop. Looking cheer­ful, delightful, more attractive and happy are dependent so much on the eyes and the corners of the mouth. When the muscles of the mouth are loose because of stress, depression, or sadness, the corners of the mouth drop and the energy system is depressed and in low key. No one likes to look at a sad face or a depressed face; it makes other people feel sad and depressed, too.

    The flow of energy in the body and the expression of the face are the main attractive powers of a person. Massaging the mouth muscles up will help to lift the corners of the mouth. The Inner Smile and lifting up the corners of the mouth are very important to building up attractive energy.

    Beautify the Mouth Massage

    Using the thumb and the index finger of the right hand, touch both corners of the mouth and feel the Chi from the thumb and index finger pass to the corners of the mouth. Slowly press and push up about one inch, release and start again at the corners, pressing up ten to twenty times each day. (Fig. 4.14)

Head Massage:-

The head massage is for headaches, nervousness, and an imbalance of Chi energy in the brain. The causes of headaches and nervousness are very complex. The head is the place in which all the nerves are seated and is the central control of the whole system. Nowadays you see a lot of young people who are very nervous. This nervousness causes insomnia, loss of appetite, faster heart beat, difficulty in breathing, tiredness, laziness, etc. It seems that all of this is not symptomatic, but it greatly affects the efficiency of work and gradually is considered mental disease.

 

The skull massage will strengthen the nervous system. With the tongue touching the roof of the mouth as it is during the massage, and the eyes moving up to the left and then across to the right, you can feel the stimulation of the Chi energy from left to right. This balances the left and right hemispheres of the brain and will result in strengthening the glands, senses and organs.

 

The head and skull massage will increase the blood circulation and will increase the nutrition of the skull and hair. We have students whose white hair grew black and students whose falling hair became denser as more hair grew back. The hair also grows softer. In the morning and at night before sleeping, you should brush your hair at least 25-50 times. Find a good brush, and be careful of the scalp. Do not scratch the skull, which might result in a headache or sense of pain.
