The book Energy Medicine Balancing Your Body’s Energies for Optimal Health, Joy and Vitality, by Donna Eden with David Feinstein, Ph.D. was first published in 1998.  My copy is the Tenth Anniversary Edition which I refer to often for my own self-healing and working with my clients.  There will be many of my future posts dedicated to Donna Eden’s wisdom and exercises she shares in all of her books.

The Return of Energy Medicine

Our remedies oft in ourselves to lie

Oh my aching feet, or not. This might not be a pretty picture but it represents something amazing. The red dot graphic foot marks the Kidney One acupressure point on the Kidney Meridian.  If you were to take a hold of your foot and place the thumb on that location, it would definitely relieve an aching foot.  What else can benefit from applying pressure to the Kidney One acupressure point?  It can help regulate blood pressure, relieves dizziness and faintness, clears the mind, improve  memory, concentration, and mental alertness.  It can help hot flashes, relieving anxiety, restores energy and increases general vitality in the body.

                 IT IS TIME TO PRESS THE RED DOT

Many of you are probably too young to remember the character Tarzan, or had little brothers running around the house pounding the center of their chest like a drum pretending to be Tarzan of the jungle.  Now I know that they were doing some great energy healing.  Tapping the area over the thymus gland is a simple technique that awakens the body’s energies, helps the immune system, and increases your strength and vitality.  This is especially true if your immune system is being challenged if you are catching a cold, fighting an infection or if you are feeling a little down.

youngtarzanthymustapThe Tarzan thump is a simple technique:  Take the four fingers of both hands and tap the center between the breasts, or you can make like Tarzan and tap with one fist.  Tap firmly, breathe slowly and deeply, in through your nose and out through your mouth for two or three deep breaths.  This is one of those exercises that you can repeat throughout the day which will help stimulate and reset the thymus gland.  Happy thumping.
