Kidney tonification is not only a man’s business, women can also have kidney deficiency. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that Chang Yongquan Point, Guan Yuan Acupoint and Taixi Acupoint can replenish kidney qi and solidify the body.
As the saying goes, “ten men and nine voids”. Men are prone to kidney deficiency. In fact, women also have kidney deficiency. Kidney is closely related to human growth and development and aging, especially for the elderly, more emphasis should be placed on tonifying the kidney and maintaining kidney qi. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that regular massage of the three major health acupuncture points can replenish kidney qi and solidify and protect the kidney.
1. Yongquan Point: the “Longevity Point” that replenishes kidney solids
The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Canon says: “The kidney comes from the spring, and the spring is also full of heart.” “The fountain point is located at the anterior 1/3 intersection of the midline of the sole, that is, when the foot flexes the toes, the anterior depression of the sole.
Regular massage of this health acupuncture point can stimulate the meridian qi of the kidney meridian, unblock the meridian of the kidney meridian, harmonize the qi and blood of the kidney, adjust and improve the function and functional activity of the kidney, so that the kidney essence is sufficient, the ears are clear, the energy is full, and the walking is powerful. Place the tip of your thumb or forefinger at the spring point and rub it back and forth, 100 times a day.
2, Guan Yuan Cave: the place where a true yuan is hidden
Guan Yuan has the functions of tonifying kidney and aphrodisiac, replenishing deficiency and profit and loss. To find Guan Yuan Acupoint is also very simple, on the middle line of the human body, measure the distance of 4 fingers wide from the navel down, which is Guan Yuan Acupoint.

3. Taixi Cave: the “Yangtze River” that gathers the vitality of the kidney meridians
Taixi Cave is located in the depression between the tip of the inner ankle and the Achilles tendon, which is the original point of the kidney meridian, so the ancients called Taixi Cave “one of the nine points of Huiyang”, believing that it has the function of returning to the Yang and saving the rebellion. When massaging this health acupuncture point, you don’t have to stick to the method, you can take about 5 minutes each time.
