I would like to thank the American Acupuncture Council, putting up this teaching. And, um, soon we will start with going deeper into understanding the mystery of, uh, one very interesting point kidney One. So let’s start the teaching.
So let’s start the teaching.
Well, as, you know, Kidney One is the only point that touches the ground. And next,
Next slide, please,
It is located on the very bottom of the foot. It has by the way, few locations, but this is the one that we use very often. Next slide.
We know in Chinese medicine, we are actually stepping in this footsteps of giants who had a deep understanding of how matter and energy changes into each other, how water and fire transform next. And so this is from matter and next to energy. So this is really the footsteps we are following. Next slide, please.
Can we look at men? Men stands between heaven and earth and then atomical position in Chinese medicine is with both hands out, you know, the anatomical position in West, in Western medicine, it’s with the heads down and that’s indicates the position of men pointing out to heaven and connecting heaven and earth. And in the slides, you can clearly see how the young, they have an energy goes down and how the energy goes up. And this goes through men, and this is also the movements of the meridians. The meridians starts from below and they go up and the young Marie didn’t start from above and go down the next slide. And with the same dynamic of, in any Ang interchanges, we can understand why all the in Meridian that starting with the work point, because that other dynamic from what to fire and why the young meridians are starting with metal, because they’re the dynamic of fire to water next slide.
This is a beautiful picture, uh, with my two colleagues about [inaudible]. We are working on this project of actually painting the acupuncture meridians. And this is the painting of the kidney, the whole kidney Meridian, which starts at the kidney one that you will see soon and ends up in the chest with the last kidney points. Next slide. This is the picture of a kidney one. And in kidney one, you see actually here, two birds, one bird is pointing downward, and one bird is pointing upward. And this is very much the dynamic in this kidney. One that brings the yang energy from a bow
But also brings the yin energy
Back up next.
Oh, you will be able to see the tree because there is this in the painting. We have a tree next. It’s the, well, it’s a DJing Wellpoint, and this is a very strong dynamic of a gene. Well point, the changing of the energy of in an yang next, you will see this,
Which is pointing down, bringing the energy down and next,
There is the young energy going up at this point. So this is a very strong and, and amazing dynamic on this, uh, acupuncture point next.
The name of the point is young Chang and young is bubbling or it’s kind of opening also for flowers. So it’s, so you have this very strong dynamic of energy entering the body. And when you stand with your soul, your feet on the ground, you can actually feel this energy coming up from the ground, but it’s a very special one. The Tron talks about like a spring and it’s to do with the water and with some special water gushing out at this place. Next, Every point has many names and this point also has many names. Um, one of them is in GU in GU called the invalid the deep Valley
And when we, and I choose this too, to talk a little bit about the name of this, uh, the secondary name of this pointing will because it’s very strongly indicates that this point is genius on the Meridian. It’s the most heated point. It’s a point when you look at somebody, you don’t see it by the way, there is two hidden points. One is on the kidney and the other one is the heart art one. This is the two points you can never see there, but it’s also to do with this hidden route of energy of the kidney. And this is the place where things are starting and initiating. And it’s almost, what’s one of the interesting point actually, to treat fear and deep seated treat, because fear is well, is hidden inside and gushes out and fills you when you are full with fear and will later I’ll give an example of how you use this point with people was fear and anxiety, even panic attack next.
The nature of this point is it’s an entry point of the kidney Meridian. It’s a gene, well it’s wood point and it’s the lowest point of the body and it’s to do with the gene. So you see all this pointing to a very strong dynamic of the kidney. And the next time You mentioned before, and it’s very special about it’s one of the only points that has this Juul action. One that it takes a strong access from the head. I just treated somebody with very high blood pressure kidney one immediately reduced his blood pressure, especially if he’d because in his case it was for kidney deficiency and it helps on the other hand to revive consciousness, it brings the young app and revive consciousness, and it helps to calm this period and also rescue the young when needed next slide. This was a good example to show what happens when it’s like when the kid is tapping into the water. So one, we have the dynamic of going down and then the water are coming up. So this kind of a nice reminder of young energy going down while the ene energy responding and going up next slide,
One of the
Paul and one of the, to me, it’s, it’s more than, than the action of the point that this point touches the ground. And this touch this, uh, sole of the foot touching the ground represent on one hand the EAN, but also the beginning of transformation of the cause they, it starts from this point goes up to the Mo to the body, and this is the most place to root yourself. You know, when you walk in the ground, when, and sometimes people went down rooted and just say, take off your shoes. The best is if you’re a next to a beach, you know, you stand in the sand, but also if you are out there in the forest or in your garden, and you put your feet on the ground, you feel that you can root yourself endlessly into the ground through this point. So it has this very strong rooting ability, but also the connection to the ground is like in electricity, we have one place which is connecting to the ground. It allows this access from the head to be discharged naturally to the ground. Unfortunately, we work with shoes and we are full with our head with activity. So this, this charging a notion doesn’t happen. And it means our head stays full with the noise. And the ability of this points to calm is not utilized, unfortunately, because we don’t walk barefoot and we don’t spend time, you know, just being in touch with the ground next time, next slide.
The lowest point in the body, but also being the would point, what point means there is a strong dynamic there, the word for spring, for the strong dynamic of this point for moving the water is very important. That’s why a lot of time we’ll see very strong effect of this point, almost immediate because of this word nature. So this powerful effect of this point is to do with the strong gang movement on the very, in a Meridian of the kidney. This is where the energy move from the bladder to the key liter is a strong change of energies. That’s why it can treat also extreme condition like epilepsy, Vertex, headaches, especially in off sometimes Vertex side effects can be hypertension next time. So one of the incidents is collaborative, young loss of consciousness, the best way to treat loss of consciousness. It’s treat kidney one on the feet and then heart nine. So you balance the fire and water. The two gene dwell points that are very strong in the dynamic of yang and bringing back consciousness next. And it helps to reduce the access of young suffer, red face waiting in the upper parts, strong feeling in the face next.
And one of its deep abilities is to balance the key and the heart. So it’s used very often for agitation, insomnia, but really hard difficulties in falling asleep, but also fears and anxiety, and very important point for menopause. Next line.
Uh, I want to spend a few minutes on this harmony of kidney and heart because they are very commonly seen in the clinic and sometimes they don’t respond. And until you create this strong dynamic of water and fire and for agitation for insomnia, but it’s also used even for memory problem, um, tendency to fear, a lot of time around menopause, women will complain and all this, uh, symptoms and because the water and fire are getting out of balance, especially if there is a preexisting condition of inefficiency. That’s why I put here the tongue of a patient, uh, with the treated with menopause, hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and very strong anxiety attacks all related in coming around the menopause time. And kidney one was the one that really resolved the case. Next slide.
And also since it’s a wood point on the kidney and the water is the mother of wood, it’s very good in, um, balancing the liver and kidney. So for uprising of livery angle, liver fire. So especially when you see the strong vision is visual dizziness. My, my last patient in the clinic had the strong spell out of very strong dizziness and, um, and actually changes in vision in the light days. And also kidney one was just immediately after she said, Oh, what did you do? I feel grounded. My dizziness went. So just today, I have to thank this point and his strong ability to help this balance. Next There’s a nice story about Quato and who was treating the general weight. I too had a very strong headache and was, was mine was confused. And yet this very strong visual dizziness, probably some kind of a migraine and headache. And, uh, Watteau was puncturing kidney one and immediately got cured, but also maybe he had the high blood pressure. So again, this was a nice story from already the second century, you know, saying how this point was used dramatically in this case, by the famous WATO physician. Next
Another nice case from the clinic. It’s a patient that I’ve been treating for a while. Uh, he has a fear of water. He has a lot of memories from early childhood of being beaten by his father, but also with great anxiety and fear from, from this beating in, from the father, when he came, he has lower back pain feeling of cold. This general called this as some dizziness. Sometimes you wake up at night to urinate many times, sometimes twice, and he’s quite young. It shouldn’t be, it has a sexual problem is performance anxiety. So you see all many different aspects related to fear and to unstable water and kidney energy. Next, This is his picture and you can see the eyes, you know, you can really see the fear there. You can really assess it. Yeah, I do a lot of diagnosis from observation says you come to the room and go, what’s going on with his kidneys. What’s going on with this fear next. So on him, I treated kidney one and kidney 23. And the reason I use kidney 23, because all the upper Kimmy chest point are very good for deep seated fears from early childhood, from, uh, things that are happening already in the natal or even prenatal life. So, uh, I feel be interested. I’m teaching a lot about this point and especially about 10 points, next slide.
And now they’re good example is a female she’s 42, and I’m saying 42, just married with two. And she felt extremely exhausted when she came to me for the last three years. And this exhaustion is actually got deteriorated in the last year. So when she came, she was most of the time spending in bed. It wasn’t like a depression. It was a real physical exhaustion. She would hardly call go out in, in bed. I even to do simple things before this, she was very functional. She was executive in high-tech and she said she has difficulty concentration insomnia, lower back pain, strong, lower back pain, uh, periods were very delayed. And, um, last year she had infertility and, uh, now she has this all the time. Also dislike fears coming out, even from doing little tasks and difficult. And let’s say she’s 44 because she’s in this time of changes of the kidney Meridian every seven years,
Feature from the clinic side, just from the, you know, I needed a kidney one and I’m bringing this patient because after this one treatment, she, she was like, totally better. You know, she came out of bed and she started to get better from, from this point on, would I obviously treated her more and, uh, in this case is, are so inspiring in South teaching for the effect of the point. So this is, to me, it was always a good example of the, the strength and the, um, ability of this true point to create a dynamic change in, in patients a case.
It looks like we use this
Point also in Chicago. You know, there’s two like main points. One is on the kidney. One again, when you in the simple exercise, simple Chicong exercise, which I recommend for everybody is sustained. Obviously, if you can stand without shoes on the ground, it’s even better. And you root yourself, you inhale and exhale through this point to root yourself, to root the lower that here, Dan can the lower abdomen, and it helps the body to absorb this yin energy. And after a while you feel stronger and firmer, so pericardium and kidney one, or the two, this access and entry points of energy, which are used a lot in Chicano.
This point with boxer, it’s actually one of this, uh, almost homeopathy likes cures likes. It says to subdue the liver young and reduce excess in the head to warm up this point.
Calming effect of this point is just touching it. It works amazingly in children really dramatically. So you can just touch this point. And then you’ve seen that children are kids that they cannot fall asleep. They’re overactive. So even just touching this point, you can even tell them to breathe to this point, but also in the clinic. If we can just touch for a minute, you see how people immediately relax and come down for insomnia, especially before bedtime. Uh, if you can do it to children, to others, it helps to kind of relax and bring down in the root Dene. So it helps to fall asleep. And now they’re good exercises just to put before sleep, to put the legs. And before this to massage a little bit, this point in hot water, you can even put salt in the water. Again, it helps to discharge the success of energy from the head down to the leg and into the water and helps to relax before sleep next line.
Uh, there is another interesting, uh, um, recorded, uh, teaching, which I did with my colleague, Ron Yale, that we are reading together, writing together this book about kidney one, where we are just discussing this point. So you can also enter and watch it for free if you’re interested, but everything in life is about the jink and Chen. And this exchange, when we see gene is water and Shen fire, and this changes of fire to water and water to fire. This is where we started of method, changing to energy and energy into matter. This is the essence of life on earth. So that’s why this point being on this very edge of this essence of yin is so dramatic and so important and can be used utilized in the clinic in so many ways. Next slide. Again, I would like to thank the American Acupuncture Council for allowing this teaching and thank you all for watching it. I wishing you the best of health. And especially in this time, the best of spirit and happiness, all the very best from me or my mom. Thank you very much.
