How to proceed with acupuncture points?

Get to know and apply the most important body acupuncture points.
In the beginning, you may go through all the acupuncture points described below in a fast run. Treat the points at first only for 2 to 3  breaths. It is about feeling and experiencing the sense of the points, their treatment and their effects on yourself.

The points are selected meridian points that strengthen and energize corresponding organs and regions.
In China, they are often part of the daily routine. After the treatment you feel well in the long term. You do something for your health, your well-being and your vitality every day.
Of course you can also choose “your favorite points” and concentrate yourself only  to these acupuncture points.

The points work without visualization. However, you can enhance the effect by accompanying the treatment of a point with positive thoughts and feelings. For this purpose, visualizations (ie, mental images) are proposed at every point.

At first, stretch yourself comfortably and take a few deep breaths. Feel relaxed and comfortable. Release the spirit.
People are very different. Sometimes a simple touch of the points is enough. In other cases, pressing, rubbing, circling, massaging, fixed constant pressing, or pressing at intervals may be appropriate. Trust your own intuition.
You can also stay longer for some points, shorter for others.
Begin the well-being treatment with one or two deep breaths down to the abdomen.
If you want to, then you can connect with the exhale a really comforting sigh.
Then continue to breathe freely and allow your body a moment to react at each acupuncture point.
So always feel a little bit behind. Mostly, you can experience a revival of the region around the point.

A very good final is also the following
“Stretching into happiness”:
The stretching of the arms has so many good effects on body and soul, that this small movement sequence occupies a favorite position.
It strengthens the heart, circulation, lungs, digestive system, spine, back, neck, eyes.
The lung volume increases, more oxygen enters the brain, muscles, tendons and nerves.
Stretching balances the spine and relaxes the abdominals and diaphragm.

While breathing deeply, move your arms up above your head. Slowly turn the palms outwards so that the palms of the hands are directed towards the sky and the elbows are turned sideways outwards.
Push your hands up a little more. As you exhale, slowly lower your hands sideways.
Feeling: When stretching the arms upwards, you may feel as if you are lounging well.
Imagine, as if you stretch into the happiness or loll.
Breathing: When inhaling, let a pleasant feeling flow into the abdomen.
Feel how chest and stomach fill with the energy of heaven or, if you like, the universe.
While exhaling (perhaps sighing) exhale let everything spilled out of the mouth.
Exhale all tensions, constrictions, so that only pure feel-good energy remains in you.
It is similar to the feeling that remains after you have straightened, stretched and yawned.
Number: Normal are 6 movement sequences with 6 deep breaths.
If you do it right, you will be able to experience a satisfying animation after the first time.
Probably you will experience with the latest, the sixth time, how you smile satisfied …
(Just as all participants of my Qigong groups do, without that being mentioned at the beginning of this little exercise.)


o Have you also noticed a lateral stretching of the ribcage?
o Has a kind of satisfied loll feeling adjusted when raising the arms?
o Can you clearly feel the relaxing feel-good energy while exhaling?

Enjoy the pleasant effects of this movement sequence for a while.
(Perhaps you get the feeling of loving yourself and everyone and everything else around you … :))
