Why Does Applying Pressure on the Forehead Provide Benefits?
Numerous scientists have researched this technique and they all claim that only a slight pressure on some parts of the body can offer amazing relief. All of the points on our body are connected to an organ. So, if you apply even the slightest pressure on a particular point, it means you stimulate an organ! Those points are present on the whole body, especially on the hands, foot and face.
You should know that there is a governing meridian that goes down the center of your face and forehead. You will activate the energy center found under your skin as well as the flow of previously blocked energy if you apply pressure. That will help you restore balance. By applying pressure on the forehead, you’ll manage to improve the whole circulation, but also stimulate the brain function as well as reduce muscle tension.
This particular point is called GV 24 (Governor Vessel), but also the Third Eye Point. Its location is between the eyebrows, a little bit above the upper bridge of the nose, right where it meets the forehead.
Improved concentration, strengthening the sense of intuition as well as relieved headaches are only some things you’ll acquire by pressuring this point on the forehead. The time for applying pressure on this point is from 45 seconds up to 1 minute.
You’ll also acquire numerous rejuvenating effects, prevent wrinkles and sagging face, remove the negative metabolism and eliminate all the nervous tension. Your blood as well as lymph flow will be stimulated, but you’ll also have firm skin, correct any mouth and eye corner and speed up any healing process!
