The method of daily maintenance of Dazhui is very simple – massage Dazhui point with thumb or palm 200 times a day.If there is a protuberance at the Dazhui, which is commonly known as "Wealth Package", you should seek medical treatment for acupuncture and moxibustion in time.What needs to be reminded is that long-time desk workers are high-risk groups with large vertebral stasis.
