Maag St 38 & St 40

Names: Ribbon Opening and Abundant Splendor
Pose: Cat Tail 

This time we’ll press on two points, thus one minute on the first one and then one minute on the second one.
The first one is St 38. Its name is Narrow opening. We’ve choose this one because of its action on the pain and the stiffness of the shoulder. Which it’s very common problem nowadays.
The second one is St 40. Its name is abundant splendor.  Some people translate it as abundant bulge. But I like more the first one because it explains beautifully the function of this point.

1 min 38 right (thump-index)
1 min 40 right (thump-thump)
4 min cat tail right ; come into the pose, edge, stilte ,time. relaxation. 

St 40 connects to its partner the Spleen and balances Qi between St and Sp, harmonizing the yin and yang of Earth element. All meridians have in acupuncture an associated element and Spleen and Stomach correspond to the earth.
This point is the most important to resolve damp (thicker fluid in the body which tends to stagnate) or slime anywhere in the body from any origin. And it can works in its own.
But, its principal target is on the chest area.

It helps a person who is feeling scarcity in her life to reconnect with a sense of abundance.
This point responds very well to acupressure or the application of a fennel seed and tangerine essential oils to liberate us from worry and support both clarity and movement in the body, mind, and spirit.
