There are five points on your body that are linked to vital functions. Using the right method to stimulate them, they can exert a positive influence on important functions of your body:

1. The abdominal region at the navel: to eliminate fat, prevent constipation

The navel is an important “window” to the health of the body. According to Chinese medicine, the navel is considered “energy from God.”
Rubbing the abdomen is a form of therapy for arteriosclerosis, diabetes, stroke, and obesity.

3. The chest: to enhance heart and lung functions

The effectiveness of the human body’s immune system, to a certain extent, depends on the density of thymosin, which stimulates the development of disease fighting cells, prevents cancer, strengthens the body, and prolongs life.

Method:
Use both hands to “beat” the chest and posterior part of the body 100 times — do this both in the morning and at night.

4. Posterior part of the body: to improve immunity and prevent coldness in the body

Rub the meridian on the posterior part of the body and also the muscle, and then tap lightly. This can clear the meridian, which will enhance peace of mind, soothe the nerves, and prevent coldness in the body. It is a form of therapy for middle-aged and elderly people with chronic diseases.

Method:
Every day in the morning and evening, rub the posterior part of the body, then tap lightly, or alternatively, use a reflex hammer (on the neck as well).

5. The spine: to improve digestion, prevent spinal disease

About 70 percent of people suffer spinal disease due to lack of proper health care. The spine has four flexing points and the sections most prone to damage are around the neck (neck arthritis) and the waist (ruptured lumbar disc).

Method:
Every night, apply spinal treatment using gentle massage and then tap lightly.

To prolong life, it is important to take daily care of your health.
