Many of you ask me how to cure medical problems; I am not a medical doctor. I only teach what I know works – from my experience using these acupressure points for 40 years. In this article, I’ll tell you why stiffness occurs and what to do about it.

The Holistic Approach to Relieving Stiffness involves the following four aspects: 1) Stretch regularly, throughout the day, whenever you get the chance, 2) Stimulate the acupressure points: GB 34, a muscle relaxant point with St 36 a muscle toning and strengthening point by rubbing briskly with your fists on both sides, below the outer part of your knees. These points are remarkable for obtaining greater vitality, endurance, and long life. 3) Choose to think positively about issues in your life and make wise choices, and appreciate what you have, and 4) Eat more greens and less fried, rich foods.

The Wood Element includes your liver and gall bladder, which govern your tendons and ligaments. They become flexible and healthy by eating lots of greens and through more daily stretching. I know this holistic approach works for not only being more flexible, but for having greater aliveness.
