I use LV 3 to relieve headaches. Even the point is all the way down on the foot, it is one of the best points to relieve headaches. Apply vigorous pressure with the intention of literally moving Qi.

Understanding the internal pathway of the Liver meridian is key to understanding the effects gained by working the Liver meridian and acupoints.

Shower Power Flowers - how fun is this?!
 
Another really great project with kids - make Shower Power Flowers!
It's so much fun for kids to help make them, and then simply put it on the shower floor for the aroma to rise!

The Heart, seat of our Spirit, passion, love and communion with others and our spiritual beliefs, is the Yin Organ associated with the Fire Element.

http://meridianmassageinstitute.com/blog/fire/
It’s summer, the height of the Fire Element. I noticed since when the Summer Solstice has arrived, the grass stopped growing so quickly (the passing of Spring Energy) and the pace of people also slowed down. The change from frantically attending to our gardens in the Spring, to sipping iced tea on the porch with... Read more »

The Lungs and Large Intestine are the Organs associated with the Metal Element. Many traditions practice meditation early in the morning during the Metal time. As the Lungs regulate our breath, we can see the wisdom of morning meditation.

The Metal Element is active from 3am to 7am.  The Lungs and Large Intestine are the Organs associated with the Metal Element.

Our bodies, thoughts, and emotions are manifestations of energy.

http://meridianmassageinstitute.com/blog/harmonize-qi/
Qi is energy. Our bodies, thoughts, and emotions are manifestations of energy.

The Large Intestine meridian has more of an impact on the respiratory system than it does on the large intestine.

Surprisingly, the Large Intestine meridian is very helpful when treating respiratory conditions.

Chinese Medicine brilliantly points out that there are many different types of headaches.

http://meridianmassageinstitute.com/blog/5-points-to-relieve-a-headache/
Chinese Medicine brilliantly points out that there are many different types of headaches.  It’s easy and  effective to massage the associated points even without diagnosing the type of headache your client is suffering from.  Work each one of these points until your client says, “wow, I feel so much better.” That’s when you know you...
