If you are feeling fatigued, anxious or over thinking, do this exercise daily. Place your thumb and middle finger together while lacing your wrist. This covers your Pericardium meridian. This meridian is known as both the Heart opener, as well as the Heart or Spirit protector. This channel protects the Heart from emotional trauma, constricts the chest to protect the Heart, and helps to express the Joy of the Heart. It helps regulate circulation in the major Blood vessels running in and out of the Heart.
While your middle finger and thumb lace your wrist, rub the wrist as shown to massage it and cover all the points on the wrist. This stimulates the following points: Heart 7, Lung 9, Pericardium 7, Small Intestine 5, San Jiao 4, Large Intestine 5.
At point Lung 9, energy (Qi) gathers. It helps to circulate our body's energy properly and calm the mind.
Another point worth noting is Heart 7, the Chinese translation is Shen Men, which means Spirit Gate. As its name suggests, this acupuncture point is fantastic for calming the mind and helping to resolve symptoms such as anxiety, worry, panic attacks, and Heart palpitations by deepening the inner connection to one’s spirit. Heart 7 is the source point for the Heart meridian, so it helps regulate any associated conditions and make sure circulation is smooth. This is great for high or low Blood pressure, anaemia and varicose veins.
Do both sides. Rub for 1-3 minutes, 2-3 times per day or as needed.
