We do not, perhaps, give enough thought to ice cubes. Let us not, dear friends, forget our dear friends the ice cubes. They are there for us when our ankles are sprained, our drinks too warm and our iced coffee waiting to be made. But did you know that there are, according to ancient Chinese healing, many more ways in which an ice cube can be used?

According to Chinese healing, should you place an ice cube on the back of your neck, where the skull and spine meet (the “Feng-Fu”, or Wind Mansion), it can have remarkable healing properties. So let’s take a look at what the humble ice cube can do for you.


Having trouble sleeping? Placing an ice cube on your Feng Fu will soothe and help you sleep, which is so worth having a piece of frozen water on the back of your neck. Probably.


If you’re having difficulty keeping your mood up (maybe you’re angry all the time, or irritable, or depressed), the ice cube healing method will work wonders, boosting your mood.

Maybe your digestive system is having problems. If so, the ice cube will help get things running smoothly again.


We’ve all been there – we’ve had that damned cold that just will not go away, no matter what we try. Vitamin C, cold tablets, cough medicine, painkillers; we’ve tried the lot and we’re still sniffling up a storm. Well, the humble ice cube is your friend there too, relieving colds.


Toothaches, headaches and other varieties of pain are nothing for the humble ice cube! Watch as they melt away before it!


If you’re suffering mental health issues, depression, mania, that sort of thing, supposedly the ice cube method can help. Don’t go off your meds just to try this though. That would be bad.
