According to an old Japanese legend, a father gave his son an extremely valuable knowledge that he has learnt from his own father.
He revealed the secret about a point which can lead to longevity, as it can prevent a hundred diseases. The son followed his father’s advice and regularly massaged this point on his body.
As his father claimed, this practice has helped the son live long enough to see the birth and death of many emperors.
Our body contains 365 points and 12 major meridians, the same in number with the days and months in a year. Acupressure is based on the system of these meridians and channels, and their link to different body organs. Acupressure includes the technique of pressing certain points of the body with the fingers.
Chinese medicine regards the body as an energy system, and the massage of these body points will influence the flow of energy in the body, and it will boost and enhance the function of the body organs.
Today, we will reveal one of the most important body points, called “the point of longevity” in China, and “the point of hundred diseases” by the Japanese.
The massage of this point, Zu San Li, will decelerate the aging process, and it will prevent numerous diseases and protect your health.
Its location is below the kneecap, and it can easily be found. Place your hands on the knees, left hand on left knee, and right hand on right knee, and you will find this point between the ends of your ring finger and the pinky, between the bones.
