The Ups and Downs of Qi

There is an acupuncture point right on the top of the head, called GV20, or DU20, which causes qi to rise upward in the body. This being the case, the point is used when you need to either hold things up and in (such as in cases of prolapse or excessive menstrual bleeding), or used to bring an extra boost of qi to the brain. This boost is helpful in raising the spirits, or in promoting an improved memory.
