To bring in the spring season, the acupuncture point Kidney 1 (Bubbling Spring) moves the stagnate Qi (Life Force) from winter to spring. This point is the lowest one in the body, closes to the earth. As winter changes to spring, going from cold to warm, Kidney 1 helps with the transformation within the body. Kidney 1 also helps with blood pressure, headaches, and menopausal symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, and restlessness). Kidney 1 calms the mind and helps to reduce disharmony of the heart. Kidney 1 is the best point for resolving feet sole pain, feet numbness, and hot or cold feet. To stimulate this marvelous, acupuncture point, use an orange stick or q-tip to push inward towards the top of the foot for a couple of breaths. Repeat two to three times.
