One little point, so many amazing reasons to use it. That is the Bai Hui.
The word Bai Hui translate to "Hundred Convergences", and it is located on the highest and most yang point on the human body, the head. Within this context, in traditional Chinese Medicine it is said that Heaven, Earth and Man are the three powers, and the Bai Hui point is the human connection to heaven. This point brings yin to the head and is considered to have a strong calming effect on the spirit.
The Bai Hui point is used to calm the spirit and treat emotions, memory and behaviors.
The Bai Hui is an important acupuncture point... yes! that's right! Qigong works with many acupuncture points in our body. This point is used for treatments of epilepsy, seizures, headache, migraines, nasal obstruction, deafness, feeling of crying, memory loss, dizziness, anxiety, stress, hormonal imbalances, mood swings, among other physical and emotional changes.
Also, it has a strong connection to the liver and bladder channels.
During our Qigong classes I teach how to massage the Bai Hui point to clear the senses and calm the spirit. No, we don't use needles! in Qigong we use the tapping technique to massage acupuncture points. Tapping is your best friend when you feel like your brain is scramble or foggy.
Practice the following exercise: The Bai Hui is located at the crown of the head, to locate it find the apex of the ears and draw the line up to the crown of the head.
Try lightly but firmly tapping this point for about a minute or so to stimulate this acupoint.
The Bai Hui has an effect on the central nervous system.
The video shows students tapping the crown of the head and making spiral movements to activate the Bai Hui point and receive energy form heaven.
