Your FREE seated exercise and acupressure point instructions
Open the Bow as Though Shooting the Buzzard:
Begin as usual sitting in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the floor, back fully supported by the back of your chair.
Breathe slowly and calmly in and out through your nose for 6 to 12 breaths.
Put your hands back to back (hands should be closed in fists) as you breathe in through your nose.
Pull your right arm out to the right side, elbow high and arm bent as you slowly breathe out.
At the same time, stretch your left arm out straight to the left side, little finger, ring and middle finger curled toward your palm, thumb and index finger out straight. You will look as though you are about to shoot an arrow from your bow.
Reverse and repeat for a total of 6 to 12 times, alternating arms each time.
Locate the acupressure point labeled GV 24.5 in the photo.
Press firmly on this point with the middle finger of one hand while using the middle finger of your other hand to press firmly at the center base of the skull at the same time.
Breathe in and out deeply through your nose for one full minute while you visualize all the stress and tension leaving each part of your body.
Benefits:This acupressure point will help relieve mental stress, tension and produce a calming effect.
