Ever wondered if Acupuncture can help with your blood circulation?
Today I’m going to share some cool facts about a point called He Gu.
He Gu is Located on the back of the hand, on the web between the index and thumb.
This point is a powerhouse to help improve circulation in the body. According to the Chinese medical philosophy, this point is a strong mover of “Qi” – Qi is an energy found everywhere around you and is vital in moving blood around the body. So, when you are feeling cold all the time, especially in your hands and feet, this point is commonly used to help get that circulation moving.
Fabiana Freire from the Instituto Jing Medicina da Dor had the brilliant idea to film a client receiving this point with an infrared camera so you can see this amazing point in action. Essentially blue means cold, and red means hot – take a close look at the before and after of this client’s hands, it’s pretty spectacular!
