Do you feel sluggish and lack energy during the day, especially after meals? The condition of your spleen channel can be behind the problem. Western medicine shows that the function of the physical spleen in the body filters and synthesizes antibodies. However, the spleen channel in Eastern medicine plays a major role in distributing nutrients and fluids throughout the body. If the spleen channel is compromised, the lack of effective nutrient/fluid distribution can result in fatigue.
The acupuncture point acupuncturists use to improve your energy level is called Da Bao (大包). To locate this point, first stand up. Clench both hands into fists and put your fists on each side of your chest.
Apply pressure between the ribs, tilting your head back slightly and slowly. Then, roll your shoulders forward. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Then relax and massage the ribs for 30 seconds. Repeat several times throughout the day. If you are having trouble locating this acupuncture point, just massage your ribs in general and make an appointment with Jane Rong Rohrs, L.Ac.!
