|Point of the Week
Increase circulation within energy pathways with acupuncture
This point, known to acupuncturists as Kidney 5, is located on the inner ankle, in the depression slightly below and behind the medial malleolus bone. It is excellent for blurry vision, unexplained loss of the period and to restore regularity to the menstrual cycle. Pressing this point increases circulation within the energy pathways and can also be used preventively upon awakening each morning to avoid developing the symptoms.
