What is Tsubo (壺)?


A Tsubo  (also referred to as points, acupuncture points or meridian points)  is a place on the skin that is especially sensitive to bioelectrical impulses in the body. There are roughly 365 of them and they are found along the meridian lines all over the body.

Traditionally, Asian cultures conceived of the points as junctures of special pathways that carry the human energy that the Chinese call Chi and the Japanese call Ki.

We can press the tsubos with the fingers, thumbs, knees and elbows to increase and ecrease energy.
