Kickstart your Adrenal Glands!

副腎に弾みをつける!

Ever wonder why as we grow older, our hair becomes thinner and loses its glossy sheen?

The organs that deal with the youthful qualities of our hair are the adrenal glands. Considering this, here is one pressure point called yusen, which enhances kidney function and will kick-start your adrenal glands to give your hair some extra nourishment. This pressure point is versatile, increasing not only your hair’s nourishment but also your stamina and energy. By simply applying pressure here, blood circulation improves and your body becomes warm. On the days you are not feeling well, please give this pressure point a try. 年齢を重ねるとともに、髪にコシがなくなり、色つやも失われていきます。髪の栄養に関わっているのは、身体の副腎という器官。そこで、腎臓機能を高めるためのツボ、《湧泉》をご紹介します。髪の滋養だけではなく、湧泉は体力や気力を高めることのできる万能のツボです。ここを押すだけで血流が良くなり、身体が温まります。元気のでない日に是非このツボを押してみてください。
