in up and down motion. This will warm up the gentry point. Now use your middle fingers to perform 24 times the circular motion on this point.
Point yuntsyuan is in the center of the arch.Its easy to spot by bending the toes. Depression before the arch of the foot is the point yuntsyuan.Use your middle finger
to make 24 rotational movements in a clockwise direction and then in the opposite direction on this point.
Now sit down,place your right foot above the left. Place your right hand on the abdomen and use the left hand to press yuntsyuan on the right foot.Now make 100 rotational movements on your stomach in both the directions using the right palm.
