Please, make use of the precious moments in the morning to take good care of your bodies and thus make yourselves happy and healthy.

I also highly recommend a morning meditation. If you just meditate for 5 min, it will change the whole day and don't forget to finish your meditation or massage with expression of gratitude. Follow this post for morning meditation and breathing suggestions

  1. When you wake up in the morning, do not open your eyes immediately, but rest in the bed for 30 seconds so that the body could get prepared.  Next, rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover your eyes with the hot hands and begin to massage eyes in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After that, slowly rotate your eyeballs from top to bottom, from left to right, and finally in circles. Repeat the eye-rotation for 18 rounds. Then open your eyes and stare at the ceiling for about 1-2 minutes. After completing this part of the massage, you will have a bright eyesight and feel refreshed, comfortable, and vigorous.
  2. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover both of your auricles (the outer projecting portion of the ear) with the hot hands and begin to massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively.
    The movements should be slow, light, and comfortable. After the massage, gently insert the tips of both middle fingers into the exterior ear holes (fingernails must be trimmed and smoothed beforehand), and massage in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After the massage, gently cover both of your auricles with the palms and use the finger pulps to softly tap your head.
    This will refresh the brains and improve or maintain your good hearing.
  3. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then cover your cheeks with the hot hands and begin to massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. Rub your hands again until they get hot.
    Then cover your forehead, mouth and nose with the hot hands and begin to lightly massage them in circles. Complete 36 circles in the clockwise and anticlockwise directions respectively. After that, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. This provides natural and cheap self-beautifying effects.
  4. Rub your hands until they get hot. Then gently cover your face with the hot hands. Slightly push your middle fingers against the nose wings on both sides, and gently massage the face from bottom to top. The massage route may cross: Mouth, nose, eyes, forehead, hairline  and Baihui Acupoint on the top of the head.
    Then move the palms across the back of your head, the occiput (back part of the head or skull), the upper hind neck, the cervical vertebrae, the lower mandible, Chengjiang Acupoint (directly below the lip), the mouth, and the philtrum (under the nose). Repeat this process for 8 circles.
    This will improve your looks, refresh the brains, restore the spirit, promote blood circulation, and dredge channels.
  5. The four massage steps described above can be completed while you are lying on the red or sitting on the bed. After the exercises, sit on the bed and have a rest for 30 seconds and then stand still on your feet for 30 seconds. 
    This will completely ease the body and prepare you for the day ahead.

Acupressure Points on your Feet for Headaches and Migraines

by Holly Tse, CMP at www.chinesefootreflexology.comIf you get headaches or migraines, here are four acupressure and Chinese Reflexology points that can help you feel better right away.  Learn how to rub your feet for fast pain relief and for long-term improvement of your symptoms. Let’s face it, headaches suck! While I often write eloquently (or so I think!), there’s no other way to describe the stabbing pain that shoots up through your eye, the vise-like grip that radiates from your head to your shoulders or the incessant throbbing that leaves you feeling cranky, crabby and foggy.

If it sounds like I've experienced some killer headaches, your assumption is 100% correct. I've had stabbing migraines, headaches that follow you to sleep and greet you on waking, dull achy head pain, and ocular migraines too.  Fortunately, I learned how to bring my body into balance so that I now can’t even remember when I last had a headache. Here are some good books on Reflexology

Qigong for Strengthening the Kidneys

In Chinese Medicine, as in reality, there is no way to separate the mind and the body.

The most pronounced emotion related to Kidney Deficiency is fear. This type of imbalance would be marked with unfounded fear and anxiety during everyday life rather than fear relating to true danger. 

Unchecked, it can manifest as infertility, sexual dysfunction, menopause, prostate problems, impaired immunity, chronic inflammation, high blood pressure, heart irregularities and anxiety.

Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue.

The kidney meridian starts at the underside center of the foot. It moves to the inside of the foot and circles the ankle. Then it moves up the inside of each leg, through the groin, and up the center of the torso about an inch fr…

Home Remedies For Warts

Warts are small benign growths on the skin, caused by a variety of related, slow-acting viruses HPV (human papilloma virus). There are at least sixty known types of HPV. Warts may appear singly or in clusters. We will talk about three types of warts: Common warts, Plantar warts, and genital warts.
Common warts can be found anywhere on the body, but are most common on the hands, fingers elbows, forearms, knees, face, and the skin around the nails. Most often, they occur on skin that is expose to constant friction, trauma, or abrasion.

They can also occur on the larynx (the voice box) and cause hoarseness.

Common warts may be flat or raised, dry or moist, and have a rough and pitted surface that is either the same color as or slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They can be as small as a pinhead or as large as small bean. Highly contagious, the virus that causes common warts is acquired through breaks in the skin.
Common warts can spread if they picked, trimmed, bitten or touch…
