This is what will happen to your body if you place an ice cube on this spot in your neck
Have you ever suffered from a blown headache or a migraine so severe that you would do anything to make it go away?
This has happened to me in the past almost all the time. But did you know that you can relieve the pain with a simple ice cube?
It sounds almost like magic - but an ice cube can actually make you feel calm and relaxed.
Chinese medicine is based on the belief that energy flows in our body through passages called meridians. With the help of acupuncture, blocked energy can be released and restore order in our body.
The following acupuncture technique is called 'the ice cube trick', they say it cures fatigue and a series of other medical problems - in just a few days.
All you have to do is place an ice cube on your neck for 20 minutes.
The specific spot in the neck is called the Feng Fu spot in Chinese medicine and it releases endorphins in the blood when something cold comes in contact with it, according to David Wolfe.
According to LifeAdvancer website, it only takes 40 seconds before the neck doesn't feel the cold and actually emits heat.
Place an ice cube on the back of the neck (where the red dot is). You can use a bandage or scarf to keep it in place.
But the easiest way is to lie on your stomach, place the ice cube and let it do the magic.
Many people claim to sleep much better after using this technique for 20 minutes in the morning and evening.
So next time you have a headache, give it a try and see if it works for you!
