Further exploration of the use of non-physical energy. 3.3.16
Many people are unaware that acupressure , as a system, can be used not only as a physical , emotional and spiritual form of therapy , but can raise our energy level as well as beautifying the physical body. There are specific points along the meridians where the qi/prana flows near the surface of the skin and these are like gateways to our internal energy system. Manipulation of these points helps to balance the body’s energy , of the hundreds of points 24 are located on the face. This simple technique of gently massaging the various points can help with insomnia and help to fortify the internal organs.
