When I have a patient who is feeling disconnected, uninspired, or cut off, this is a fantastic place in the body that, when stimulated, often brings an almost immediate restoration of deep connection. I love this point! and find it particularly useful this time of year as Autumn reveals or sometimes forces opportunities to let go and grieve.
We will stimulate this point by tapping with our fingers. Continue to tap, until you feel a deep breath come and go.
