The Bladder Yuan Source Point (YSP) is located on the lateral aspect of the foot, below the 5th metatarsal bone. YSPs are significant in treating diseases of the internal organs. Pressuring these points stimulates the vital energy of the regular meridians, regulates the functional activities of internal organs, reinforces antipathogenic factors and eliminates pathogenic factors. What does all THAT mean? That taping your feet can aid digestion!
This taping technique applies pressure to the YSP point each time you take a step, giving constant stimulation. The pressure and stimulation of this point helps support healthy function of the ICV, which is critical for normal digestion and preventing waste from flowing backwards into your system.
A malfunctioning ICV can present as:
- joint pain
- circulation issues
- muscular aches
- pinched nerves
- chronic sinusitis/asthma like symptoms
- dark circles and/or puffy cheeks
- IBS, Celiac, Crohn’s, digestive issues
- Insomnia/racing thoughts
