Learn to calm seasonal allergy symptoms in 1-3 minutes with this Qi Gong breathing technique. It’s called regulating the qi, or flow of energy, so that all the vascular pressure up in the head and face can regulate, and go both up and down. When we focus, work hard, drink caffeine or stimulants, get anxious or stressed, all the energy drives up to our heads, causing congestion. If you have allergies, this congestion ends up in the sinuses, and if you don’t, it ends up as neck tension, headaches, high blood pressure, irritability, anxiety, or even high blood sugar from a Chinese Medical perspective. Taking a few minutes to help it go back down immediately reduces symptoms and also gives you a sense of calm and grounding.
