Locate the base of your skull where your spine is attached and move your index fingers outward a few centimetres on each side of the spine. This is the Heavenly Pillar point. Apply pressure here for 2 minutes every day to relive skin stress. Place your index finger right between your eyebrows above the bridge of your nose. Place pressure here for at least one minute every day. The Heavenly Glow Point is located behind your jaw bone, a few centimetres below your ear lobe. Apply pressure here for a few minutes daily, and any time you have your hands free. Activating these points can help you fix your problems.
