Photo by @fritzphotos | Beneath the uniform and the armor James Harrison wore as outside linebacker in the NFL were the bruises from cupping treatment. Cupping is an ancient therapy practiced for centuries in China. At 39, Harrison was the oldest defensive player in professional football in the United States. Photographer @fritzphotos and writer @petergwin visited Harrison during his spring training in Scottsdale, Arizona, to witness his workouts and health routine (no alcohol, refined sugar, or processed carbs) for the Nat Geo story on Chinese medicine in the January 2019 issue of the magazine. Before retirement, Harrison was spending about $350,000 a year employing a team of specialists, including massage therapists, acupuncturists, and chiropractors, that helped manage the pain and impact his intense workouts and the game had on his body. When it was mentioned to Harrison that scientists are skeptical about cupping and some of the other treatments he uses, he shrugged and said, “All I know is, before I get treated, I hurt, and after, I feel better.” Check out the story online or in print to see more pictures of James Harrison with cupping jars and acupuncture needles and to learn about Chinese medicine. #Cupping #Chinesemedicine #NFL #JamesHarrison #92 #fritzhoffmann

Point Zero - back to base 👂🏻 This ear acupoint lies in an area of inner action by the vagus nerve. Stimulation of this point can yield significant parasympathetic effects.
.
Great for calming. It’s like a RESET button to bring the body back to balance⚖️

Acupressure Liver 3 Point is a well known point that can heal dizziness as well as fainting. The Liver 3 Point (LV 3) is also called Bigger Rushing Point. The Acupressure Liver 3 Point is situated on the top of the foot. You can find the proper spot of Bigger Rushing Point (LV 3 Point) in the gap between the big toe and second toe as displayed in the picture above. The gap between the big toe and second toe is also known as valley where the Acupressure Liver 3 Point is located. As you find the Liver 3 (Bigger Rushing) Point on your foot as shown in the picture, apply firm pressure on LV 3 Point with your thumb for 30 seconds approximately. Thereafter stimulate the Liver 3 (LV 3) Point on the other foot. Repeat the process for better results. Applying pressure on Acupressure Liver 3 Point (Bigger Rushing Point) on both feet will be helpful to cure problems like anxiety, anger, menstrual problems (in female), headache, fainting, dizziness, loss of consciousness, exhaustion etc.
