Any Type Of Headache or Migraine Caused by Toothache or The Grinding Of The Teeth Acupressure Points.
I used to have really bad headaches and migraines because of grinding my teeth while i was sleeping and I would wake up with blood in my mouth.I also started very early losing my teeth.Some by playing to rough but most just started to decay especially after I became vegetarian and i also hated the dentist totsally terrified of the occupation because of needles don't like them any where near me.so through meditation and the strengthening of my will I was able to map the points that got me to my current aspect of being pain free both from headaches and migraines to toothache and more.
Right at the top of the main artery leading to the brain in the neck going towards the back is a meridian point known as Triple warmer 17 press this point slightly inward and upward gently or to desired effect you will feel the lymph nodes in your neck on either side of your throat (the ones that get swollen when you get sick)release a chemical into your mouth swallow it. This will take about a couple of seconds but its very very fast the headache will start to ease up or migraine. For those of you who have the awareness of chi. You then to end all pain coming from that experience go to the middle of your forehead at the place most people call the third eye point take your middle finger and gently send your awareness to it and draw out the pain from the rest of your head using this point charged in the finger with the awareness known as chi you will start to feel this weird sensation of the migraine being drawn out of the body by your hand brushing this point and drawing it away from your body.
Headaches and Migraines caused by differentiation in blood pressure are eased by pressing the point of the radial nerve in the hand. Most of the time a circular up and inward pressure helps to relieve faster but most of the time all you will need to do is apply firm pressure to the point.
Upper Back and Chest Pain
When it comes to these meridians when working upon students I have found these points to really help with the releasing of the back and chest armor people create from holding in their negative emotions and not releasing the stress and negative emotions.
Large Intestine 16 on the back slightly underneath the shoulder blade
Stomach 13 on the left side of the pericardium and slightly above like half a fingers width. In conjunction with
LI 16 or at the same time circular gentle rubbing with the index finger will start to immediately release the armor effect.Engage pressure according to person. These will release the mid back muscles
Use pinching method along the sides of the brachial plexus or main artery within the neck the point within the artery will release the chest muscles
repeat as necessary or find a doctor as soon as everything is ok.Find the source of the problem.
You will also find with these points because of the way your muscles are you might have to change slightly the way you press upon your points you do not want to cause pain or should I say damaging pay which causes more stress but a releasing pain is always good.

A simple problem made complex.
Hi I have been reading abit about people who have knee problems in their tai chi training and how if you have a pre-existing problem with knee injuries tai chi is not the practice for you but I must add that this is a very serious fallacy when it comes to the art of tai chi . Most people believe that when you have to bend your knees that they have to bend their knees to the maximum or atleast to some type of middle ground this is very far from the truth. When it comes to bending the knees, you can bend as much or as little as you need to because no one walks with their knees locked in, so you can just use the natural bend within the knee and no more than that,coupled with keeping the knee aligned with the big toe, just enough alignment not overboard will stop any pain or injury on the spot. I have worked with many people throughout my years with knee problems and every time we stop the pain "Every Time." You also need a teacher who is going to stay on you and watch you meticulously to let you know where you are going off track when it comes to proper alignment.You can start the form with the correct alignment but many times in between I have seen students forget because of them paying attention to something else instead of their foundation if the foundation is weak there can be no tai chi. So granted fellow teachers you may have to put in more meticulous work and care for your students but it is more than worth it because when you help another to heal their problems you heal some of your own.

Feeling nauseous, anxious or dehydrated? The cure is in your own handsBy Toffler Niemuth 2 November, 2011
After stowing the passport and the traveler's checks, it’s straight to the airport pharmacy for most long-haul fliers for the pills, tonics and remedies used to alleviate aches and ills.
But there is another choice -- acupressure.
Acupressure is the practice of pressing or massaging certain points on the body said to stimulate self-curative abilities.
For each of the points descibed below, you may need to press or rub the point in 20-30 second intervals for up to 10 minutes before the effect is felt. You may also need to use it repeatedly throughout the day.
Play around with what works best for you.
Note: The author is not a medical doctor. For serious medical issues, always consult a qualified physician.
1. Motion sickness and nausea: Anti-vomiting point
ocate: Inside of the forearm, two thumb width above the wrist crease, between the two tendons. The point is actually located below surface level so pushing deep is more effective.
2. Neck and back pain: Back-movement point
Ever seen those wrist bands people wear for boat or car trips? Those are designed to press on this point to relieve motion sickness and nausea. This is also the number-one point I tell fellow travelers about.
Long days traveling, cheap hotel pillows and carrying a mammoth-sized backpack can cause neck, shoulder or lumbar pain. Rubbing this point eases these complaints.
For a stiff neck, rub in small circles while slowly turning the head one direction and then the other.
Locate: Make a loose fist and, looking at the pinky side, find the last crease (just below the biggest knuckle). Along that line at the intersection of the two slightly different shades of skin is the point.

3. Sore throat and lightheadedness: Cold-relief point
Overnight flights, sudden climatic changes and air pollution can all increase a traveler’s susceptibility to the common cold.
Rubbing or pressing this point relieves symptoms associated with colds, including sore throat, cough, sneezing and body aches, plus lightheadedness.
Locate: Loosely interlock your thumbs at the webbing -- both palms facing down, keeping your wrists straight, extend your index finger to the skinny edge of your wrist.
Under the pad of your index finger in the prominent bone you’ll find a small depression -- that’s the point. Reverse which hand is on top to find the point on the other side.
Also on CNNGo: Is massage good for you or does it just feel nice?
4. Headache, constipation and fever: Release point
Whether you feel a headache coming on from dehydration, too much drinking, or just the pains of traveling press this point to relieve headaches and general pain.
When all the unfamiliar food of Asia or the oftentimes poor diet of a traveler leaves you constipated, massage here. This point is also used to reduce fever.
Caution: This point can induce labor, so do not use on pregnant women.
Locate: Spread your index finger and thumb, then place the joint of your opposite thumb along the webbing and bend the thumb over. Just in front of the tip of your thumb is the point -- search around until you find the sore spot.
Also on CNNGo: The Japanese underpants that burn calories for you
5. Digestive issues: Stomach-solution point
Exotic food, an unfamiliar environment and less-than-sanitary conditions can wreak havoc on normal digestion
Use this point for abdominal pain, bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation, as well as the oftentimes accompanying fatigue and weakness.
A harder massage may be required, but it should feel tender when you have found the right point.
Locate: It is on the outer shin just below the knee. Relax the leg straight, place your four fingers on your knee with the index finger against the knee cap.
Mark the horizontal level under the pinky finger. At that level, using the middle section of your middle finger, place the knuckle on the shin bone, where the second knuckle lands (going toward the outside of the leg) is the vertical line.
At the intersection is the point.

THE MYSTICISM OF OBE
In the past, both in the East and the West, induced OBE had been considered secret practices. And Buddhist and Taoist traditions in China carefully distanced themselves from "OBE with a personal agenda". I believe for two reasons: firstly, it is in direct opposition to their religious beliefs, and secondly, lest their religions might be persecuted by the authority (though sometimes they were still persecuted despite their distancing from OBE with a personal objective, but that will be another story) In China's mainstream religious tradition, those who practiced any form of OBE for personal gains were unfortunately oftentimes being considered as "evil cultists" (邪魔外道). If we do not assume that the authority was always on the right side (politically or morally), then we shouldn't assume that all "evil cultists" who practiced OBE with personal ambitions were necessarily the bad guys! In Chinese history, Master Hung and his disciples who organized the Taiping Revolution had the "noble goal" of overthrowing foreign invasion is an example worth some serious thoughts by contemporary kind heart humanists. Unfortunately Hung's army failed in their venture, and their position in Chinese history has therefore been debatable and being debated till now.
In Dynasty China, those who practiced fortune telling or Feng Shui oftentimes were being considered to have special spiritual powers (though they [wisely] usually refrained from involving into politics), and I contend that some of these people did believe they had such power through their practice of OBE! Such techniques were oftentimes passed on only through an oral tradition for obvious reason of personal security. A contemporary popular author and practitioner who studied it a lot and wrote a lot on the subject is a Japanese: 高騰聰一郎, many of his books has been translated into Chinese (published in Taiwan). Nowadays, this oral tradition is more prevalent in Taiwan, due to the fact that Hong Kong people are more suspicious of superstitious beliefs, and the mainland is not a place too kindly to religious/spiritual/mythical orders not directly under the Government monitored religions, notably the closely monitored big four: Taoism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islamism.
In the West OBE has become part of popular culture with many popular non-fictions exposing different ways to induce one into different OBE zones. In our contemporary western culture, mysticism and mystical practice like self-induced OBE have become a subject of personal interest. In the modern utilitarian culture, everything will be fine as long as firstly it is not against the law, and secondly it is good for you for whatever reason! A society of spiritual supermarket (and infidelity is not a problem except for the orthodox societies which a modern man will frown upon and consider a "dying industry" anyway). All living great masters of any profound teaching, like it or not, it is now the buyer's market! All eager learners, like it or not, learn anything at your own risks!

There is nothing more important to me than being real to my students and to the rest of the world.It is my obsession to show that Tai Chi is a way of rejuvenation and not just some physical excercise or some barbaric way of totally annihilating an opponent.Through my long time studying of over 20 years I have seen many things both martially and by the way of health and I must say the most awesome is watching people regain their health and regain their lives through the understanding of the path I have helped them to achieve. I have seen peole cure themselves with the tai chi I have taught them of many various mental diseases as well as physical diseases.complete turn arounds so much that you wouldn't recognize the person.Beaming with joy and light from every aspect of their life.Whosoever wants to find true healing can find it in Tai chi and I am one of it's few Masters that can assist in this type of journey. So if you are sick and you need help find me and I will do everything in my capable hands to show you the way to defeating your sickness and you will be amazed. You Will Be Amazed.
