Heart 8 (Ht8), also called 'Inner Treasure of the Palace': Revitalizes and Re-ignites the heart’s fire. Release and let go of old worries and fears and tap into the courage to move forward. Diminish habituated force/urgency of repressing or unfulfilled desires. Feel harmonized and inspired! HT8 tonifies or sedates heart fire. Treats ‘burn out’
Heart 8 is located on the palm: curl your pinkie finger into palm as if making a fist to find Ht8.
Small Intestine 5 (Si5) is also known as 'Yang Valley'. This point fans the 'alchemist's' flame and burn off past karma that blocks transformation. Si5 empowers the fire of conscious awareness. Si5 imparts a clarity of vision as one's process: helping us sort, filter and assimilates life’s experiences. If you're feeling lackluster, confused, lethargic, lazy, stuck - you need Si5 to experience clarity & vitality! Si5 is found on the pinkie side of the wrist, where the wrist bends to the side (between the ulna and the triquestral bone).
Pericardium 8 (P8) is also known as 'Ancient Palace of Ancestors' this point resurrects a weary heart’s. When the heart is weary from past heartbreak, this point can rekindle one’s joy. P8 can induce a state of bliss within the heart to transcend past pain and empower us to regain courage to live/love again. If sedated, it can quell mania, addictive behavior and calm the spirit. Great for insomnia. Find P8 by curling the middle finger into the palm, as if making a fist.
San Jaio 6, also called Triple Warmer 6 (SJ6) or 'Flying Tiger’ imparts abundant strength and energy. This point helps to regulates fluid metabolism as well as our internal thermostat. When this point is tonified it can boost metabolism; when this point is sedated it cools inflammation. When this point balances the mind-body we are able to give and receive warmth and love, joy and harmony.
