During the long and cold Flu season, one will try anything to stop our nose from running and stay positive and healthy!
In saying that, a piece of news from the ‘weird but true files’ is claiming that placing an ice cube on the back of your neck actually has various health benefits, from cold and fly relief to even support of our mental health.
Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Feng Fu Point treatment supposedly brings the entire body back to its natural physiological balance, rendering strong life impulse and body stimulation.
So where on your neck do you place the ice cube?
The precise point of your neck is called the Feng Fu. To locate it, move your fingers at the back of your neck and find the spot where you can feel your skull meeting your neck, this is the Feng Fu Point, and its where you place the ice cubes.
- Health benefits of Feng Fu:
- Support positive mental health
- Improve your sleep
- Mood improvement
- Help PMS
- Relieves aches, pains and headaches
- Thyroid health support
How to do it:
While lying on your stomach, place the ice cube on the spot that you have previously located and stay still for 20 minutes.
For ideal results, repeat the procedure every morning and night for two to three continuous days.
If you feel some heat after 30-40 seconds, don’t be scared, this is an entirely normal sensation!
