Holistic Prevention for Cold Season: Stimulate GV-14 (Daechu) and BL-12 (Poongmun) energy points.

If our immune system is weak, with too much stagnant cold energy, the flu virus thrives in our bodies, especially in the dark, moist passages of our nose, throat, and lungs.

Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, suggests helpful exercises for cold and flu season in their Health Tips series this month. The article, “Warm Up Your Energy,” introduced in a recent issue of the newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life, shares ways to get rid of cold energy in your body to prevent and manage illness.

Dahn Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines the ancient wisdom of Ki energy training with modern techniques to maximize and change your energy. Recent research seems to be endorsing the possible benefits from ancient healing arts and meditation in creating a balanced body and good health.

This month’s article shares three techniques: a combination of meridian exercises, breathing, and acupressure, to help expel cold, damp energy from your body by activating the Dae-chu and Poonmun energy points. The Poong-mun (BL 12 acupressure) point and Dae-chu (GV 14 acupressure) point are located along the spine at the upper back, between the shoulder blades. The article emphasizes beneficial exercises and states, “If our immune system is weak, with too much stagnant cold energy, the flu virus thrives in our bodies, especially in the dark, moist passages of our nose, throat, and lungs.”

Those who wish to learn more about Dahn Yoga practice are encouraged to visit the website, which also includes a treasure of archived editions of Dahn Yoga Life from months past.
