A lot of you would probably like to know an easy and simple method to alleviate headaches or to boost your energy levels, right? According to The Hearty Soul, one such method is putting an ice cube on the back of the neck in order to encourage what is known in traditional Chinese medicine as Feng Fu point.
Where to Find the Feng Fu Point?
This point is located on the midline at the neck’s nape, in the depression between where the neck meets the skull. According to proponents of traditional Chinese medicine, this method has helped a lot of people to address brain and body issues and significantly boost their health.

What about Using Ice Cubes?
According to traditional Chinese medicine, some health issues are linked with the body having excessive or too little heat and vice versa, i.e. excessive cold or too little cold. This is where the idea of using ice during the stimulation stems from. Sometimes, a headache can be caused by surplus heat. In case the underlying cause of your headache is too much heat, adding ice cubes to the treatment may be advantageous!
