Point of the Month
Bladder 65 : Bone Binder
Located on the lateral side of the foot, in the depression posterior and inferior to the head of the fifth metatarsal bone.
On a physical level this point can be utilized for seizures, dizziness, headaches, neck stiffness, back pain and hemorrhoids. It also happens to be a first-aid point for burns, fractures, food poisoning and insect bites!
Debra Kaatz eloquently describes the spirit of this point:
“Bones provide both structure and protection for the body. They are the last part of the body to decay and are said to hold the memories of our life. They also contain the marrow that creates the cells that are needed as we grow. At this point we can feel and envision the real purpose of our life and then spring into action and move forward with that insight”
