According to Chinese medicine, when the kidney essence is abundant, better circulation in the brain , and when the kidney essence is deficient, the circulation will be insufficient. When the circulation in the brain is better , the ears and eyes will be smart and full of energy. Therefore, In addition, blood is the material basis of mental activity. Blood flow must be sufficient in order to support mental clarity and mental abundance. If the blood is deficient, then the sanity has no support and can often cause insomnia, being dreamy and forgetful. That is why blood supply to enhance memory is very helpful.

The hippocampus of the brain is responsible for memory storage, reading, use, corresponding to different acupoints, and can make the brain degrade slower. The “Hundred Happiness Point” at the intersection of the centerline of the top of the head and the tips of the ears is located at the center of the top of the head, and is also the place where the whole body’s chi flows together. Pressing this point for several times in a row has the effect of waking up the brain and calming the mind. In winter, when there is less sunlight, and when you wake up, you are not in good spirits and your reaction is slow, so you can press and stimulate the point to increase the circulation of qi and blood and unclog the meridians of the whole body.
