The following dim mak methods I have found to be of great benefit if not for the specific illnesses they help to heal, simply for helping one to have a wonderful day.
For Night: Or Early Morning
Dim Mak Healing Points No. 1 Lay on back and place the palms under the lower back so that the backbone is across the wrists. Put pressure onto the wrists. This activates the whole wrist area. Co5 (on wrist in hollow on right side of right wrist on back.) Si5 (On the other side of wrist in hollow right over on side of wrist) TH4. (Back towards the middle of the wrist but still to left on right wrist in hollow on wristband).
CO5, Draws Qi down from the fire to make lower heater more active to increase the movement of fluids. Especially if slowed by cold.
TH4. Relaxes the tendons (nerves). Reinforces the three heaters. Strengthens Jung (Chong) Mei (LifeLine) & ren Mei (Conceptor vessel), removes heat (so you can sleep) & stimulates the Qi in the meridians. Strengthens overall communication with 3 heaters. Cools and nourishes the blood. Heart & Liver are strengthened.
Si5. Fire & Jing point. Fever, Deafness, tinnitus, Yang Madness. If you have weakness due to blockages within small intestine such as 'damp obstruction'. The weakness causes a backlog of Qi & fluid in the stomach (blocking digestion) & gall bladder. This is due to the physical connection of Small Intestine to the stomach & gallbladder through common bile duct. This point increases circulation through SI and relieves the blockages.

Dao Yin Exercises for converting the sexual energy for us
Lie on floor or in bed. Tongue on hard palate. Breathe in as you raise your feet so that they can come up no more. Drop the tongue to lower palate as you breathe out and raise your bum as high as you can without causing your shoulders to leave the floor. The hands should be flat on the ground palms down beside you.
Drop the tongue up again and breathe in as you lower the bum. Now as you breathe out, drop the tongue and bring your lags up to your chest and hug your shins tightly as you still breathe out. Hold it until you wish to breathe in again. Breathe in as you lower your legs holding them at an angle of about 20 degrees for a few seconds and then lowering them to the floor. Bring the tongue back up and breathe in again/ Repeat this for three times.
