It is important to know that our body is a perfectly functioning machine, but it needs to be stimulated in different areas in order to guarantee a deep and 360° well-being. The point we are talking about today is right at the back of top of the neck and all we need to activate its benefits is a simple ICE CUBE!

According to Chinese traditional medicine, this point is called Feng Fu point and is located at the back of top of the neck. Precisely where the head and neck meet to form a kind of hollow.

Method to apply this therapy

First, locate the Feng Fu point

The most practical and comfortable position for this application is lying on your stomach, belly down, to keep the area behind the neck free. If you have long hair, tie it up in a high ponytail so as not to interfere with the Feng Fu point. Once in position, take the ice and place it on the hollow between your head and neck. Let it work for at least 20 minutes.

You may feel some discomfort and numbness in the first few seconds, but you will get used to it. If you really can’t stand the feel of the ice on your skin, you can use a cloth to wrap the cube.

Repeat the application regularly, with an interval of 3 days between each application. The best times are in the morning on an empty stomach or in the evening before going to bed.

You can put the ice on a scarf or towel and walk around with it if you don’t have time to lie down with it for a few minutes.


Now, you’re going to feel a little cold… that’s normal! Immediately after, you will feel a sense of well-being and euphoria, as the ice favors a better and greater release of endorphins into your bloodstream.
