The Wind Points

I’m excited to share with you a very valuable energy understanding. In your energy system there are a series of powerful access points, known as the wind points, where the energies of the environment can enter the body. They play a vital part in managing your health and your resiliency at the times when you are feeling pressure in your life.

Recently, I have noticed that many of my loved ones have been having real challenges keeping their wind points, or pressure valves, stabilised.

Do you recall your grandparents telling you to always wear a scarf on a windy day? Well, they were right. And first up, you have to be aware that the ‘wind’ points aren't just about when it is a windy day. ‘Wind’ in the Chinese understanding means a force of external environment or climate, including various types of external energies such as damp, dry, wind, and heat, that can be carried into the body when these access points are open and unprotected, acting as a portal through which your vital life energy can leave you and the mischievous affects of the external climates can continue to flood into your whole body system.

These energies are called various names in the ancient Chinese texts, including the wind points, climate points, and (this one makes me laugh every time) the five pernicious devils! I like to think of them as pressure valves, and it is very common to have challenges with the wind points when you are ill or when the seasons are changing.

These points are located on various points on the head, neck and shoulders - you can watch my video demonstrating the location and correction of the points, filmed on a very windy day!

If you know how to energy test, you can energy localise any of these points and test to see if they are strong or weak. If you don’t energy test then you can simply work on any or all of the points. Notice if any feel more vulnerable or sensitive than others and give them special attention. 

If you are someone who doesn’t like the wind or feels affected by being out in it, then you may need to work with these points every time that you go out in wind, until your points are more and more resilient, and you can also support the wind points by most definitely by wearing scarves when you go out into the wind!


You can find out more about the pressure valves, how you can access them and work with them in my series of two 90 minute online classes:

In Class 1, called 'Feeling the Pressure', you get a thorough introduction to the pressure valves, with information on where they are, and how you can access them and work with them to keep them in balance so that you can stay safe, resilient and empowered, every day. Find out more and sign up here

In Class 2, called 'The Pressure Valves of the Body', you will deepen your understanding of the pressure valves, demonstrating how to work with them on other people, and why they are so vital to your client outcomes. This class is designed for all healthcare practitioners, carers and educators who work with their clients to empower health, balance and vitality. You can also benefit from this class if you want to extend your understanding about pressure valves to a deeper level. Find out more and sign up here


I hope this helps you keep your energies stable and joyful. With love, Prune
