Dear Juicy & Strong Beauty
Thousands of years ago, Lao Tzu, the father of Taoism and Taoist Medicine said that those who breathe through their heels know the secret of life and true health.
What did he mean by that?
1. The center of the soles of our feet houses a truly special and significant acupressure point called K1 (Kidney 1). When stimulated this acupressure point helps rejuvenate and regenerate our life energy and increases blood flow to our kidneys, adrenal glands (which are most susceptible to being drained by stress), and our reproductive organs. Good blood flow and circulation are the very foundation of health. This acupressure point is the main Switch of your rejuvenation and the best SOS panic button against overexertion and burnout. Did you know that the principles of Tai Chi is and Qi Gong are based entirely on opening this acupressure point and connecting us to the ground? Have you ever wondered why?
2. Earthing/Grounding: mounting evidence and studies confirm that by touching the naked soles of our feet to any natural surface, the Earth’s electromagnetic field helps rebalance our inner bioelectrical environment and cool down our overheated sympathetic nervous system. Not only that: connecting the soles of our feet with the Earth resets our biorhythm clock (the existence of which was confirmed through scientific research that won the Nobel Prize), and lowers elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
So it is important that you spend at least a couple of minutes a day with your bare feet touching the ground, the earth, the grass, the sand, and connecting to nature.
If you want to further boost your body’s rejuvenation and regeneration, regularly massage the K1 point in the center of the soles of your feet. Another powerful technique is visualizing how with every exhale, your bare feet that are in contact with the ground are releasing all the stress you are feeling into the earth, while every inhale fills you with tranquility, health, and strength.
The simplest things are always the most effective – all you need to do for them to work is to do them!
All the POWER is WITHIN YOU!
