This point is my all time fav!
Why, because it's so profoundly brilliant for so many conditions of the head and face... Eg. headaches, migraines, toothache, clarity of mind, sinus infection, congestion and pain, tired, dry or itchy eyes plus all the symptoms of cold and flu.
If you have any of the above symptoms try rubbing this point and see how it can help. Go in slowly with pressure as it usually is a tender point.
How to locate: If you close your thumb and finger together the point colon 4 sits on the high side of the crease in the muscle on both hands. On applying pressure it should feel tender.
It is also our main induction point for our pregnant ladies at 40 weeks, as it has the action of producing oxytocin into the blood stream that causes contractions to start and increase. When pressured or massaged in labour it will increase their contractions which helps cervical dilation occur. It also takes the edge off the contraction pain when used throughout the birthing process. I love calling it a "birthing woman's best friend", due to the fact that the woman can use it to help her in labour.
If you are pregnant and have any of the above symptoms then please don't rub this point as it is powerful. We can use other point combinations to help you with those above sypmtoms while you are pregnant with great results.
