It's so hot outside! How can I cool down?

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.
