Treating Asthma

Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out and shortness of breath.

It is oftentimes caused by inflammatory foods like dairy products or a viral infection or toxic exposures.

Treating asthma is one of the most amazing and consistently successful applications of Tongren. 

You can use tapping which is good but the laser is even better. In the picture above, the laser is pointing to CV17.


CV17 is the critical point (See image above). We have 3 dantians or energy batteries and this is the middle dantian. It is the gateway to the lungs. 

Here is a recommendation for a brief protocol and you can do this simultaneously; Tapping and the laser on a second doll.


T2 - Upper Lungs and Bronchial area

T3 - Lungs

Diaphragm - This manages lung capacity - T6 and/or the ohrenic nerve

CV17 - Chest Cavity + Lungs

LU1 (Lung 1 Chinese medicine point - Long thoracic Nerve)

LU2 (Lung 2 Chinese medicine point - Long thoracic Nerve)


CV17  Point - During the tapping session is good simultaneously or 10-20 minutes twice a day is a good start

Why Does It Work?

Tongren is excellent at removing blockages by tapping, but also great for adding and tonifying energy and reducing inflammation. 

I use tapping to open a blockage and a laser to add energy and tonify.  Using a laser after opening a blockage allows the flow of energy to get where it was restricted or excluded from before because of blockages, thereby allowing for quicker healing/

Reducing inflammation is always a good strategy for any condition. CV17 will add energy to the lungs and immediately at times, it will reduce a mucous attack or cytokine storm, just as happens with COVID.
