Jing Well Points
The points on hands and feet are the more superficial and most dynamic ones along any of the twelve ordinary meridian channels. Being the most superficial, they are the points representing the connection between the body and the environment. Emotionally, they relate to the connection between the psyche and external influences, and they directly impact on our programmed or patterned reactions.
These special points are where the energy changes polarity from yin to yang or vice versa. Due to this polarity change, the life force energy is most unstable and therefore most easily influenced at these points. They are referred to as jingwell points, where jing means essence.
From an acupuncture or acupressure perspective, the jingwells have a particularly strong effect on the mental-emotional state and are known to quickly change a person’s mood.
These most superficial points are potent for
- release of excess or distressing emotions, (tapping or holding the finger or foot points will produce immediate relief). Use for irritability, mental restlessness or confusion, anxiety, and emotional states of extreme imbalance.
- as emergency points (for things like fainting, extreme breathlessness, or shock), because, much like a ‘reset button, they produce immediate changes to the flow of energy in the meridians affected.
These are called’ miracle points’, and are best used when you have no idea how to treat something–simply stimulating these points to flush the qi through all the meridians will reset the entire system and restore calm.
When using them, apply the FA oils as indicated in the protocol for the 12 ordinary meridians to associated hand and foot points.
Because of the power of the jingwells to cause instant changes in qi flow, they are recommended for use particularly in cases of acute emotional states, especially if you notice physiological changes too. You can do ths for yourself, or by proxy for those in your environment. Hold intention to release all the static programs and assumptions that are implicated in the acute imbalanced state.
These are good points to use with children in states of agitation and over-excitement. The FA master1 blend for children may be used, and oil rubbed in into finger tips and toes, as appropriate. For over-excitement, Heart point on the pinky is a good ’emergency’ intervention.
The foot points are also good ones to use if you do want to minimize the scent from the FA oils, as you can wear six of the oils on the feet, under socks and shoes.
The hand points are also good alternatives if you are fully dressed and cannot easily reach points under your clothing.
They are easy to have clients apply, when hands-on treatment is not part of your services.
Connection between Body an Environment
Being the most superficial, they are the points representing the connection between the body and the environment. They surface nearest the skin, and cause a reversal in qi flow, correcting imbalances such as taking things personally and seeing outer reality as having an effect on you.
Applying FA Oils to the Jingwells
