It's so hot outside! How can I cool down?
Since I have been living in the Greater Phoenix area in Arizona for almost 20 years, I am used to hot summers. But sometimes, it can be just too hot! Here is a specific acupressure point that helps to cool down the body:
Key points of this video:
Du 14 or Governor Vessel 14 is an acupressure point that cools you down, or as we say in Chinese Medicine “vents heat”.
It is located on the midline, at the base of the neck, where the head attaches to the rest of your body; just below the notch that you feel.
Applying a couple of drops of Peppermint Essential Oil helps to cool down your body.
You can also activate this point by rubbing it with your finger or fingernail. You can even use something like a credit card to rub that area.
