Within the midst of 360 acupuncture points, 12 organ channels and 8 extraordinary vessels there are 10 special points called Window of Heaven acupuncture points. The points, with one exception, are located physically on the neck and throat. From a biomechanics perspective the points help regulate how much qi is in the body and how much qi is in the head. But that is just where it starts to get interesting. The points are far more ethereal in nature, more esoteric. They suggest a rejoining of head and body. A bridging of the mind and intellect to the corporeal, flesh and blood body. They are used in circumstances when people forget their body, become disjointed or afraid of their body and need to reinstate that connection.
This is the goal not only of these points but of Window of Heaven Acupuncture & Yoga. We all know the physical manifestations of losing that connection within our own selves. It is as dangerous as losing touch with nature.
