SORE THROAT AND WIND PIPE IRRITATION


This point is useful not only in general coughing, but especially if you happen to inhale bits of liquid such as saliva or anything you drinking. We used to call it getting something down your Sunday throat. Anyway, light to medium pressure over neck point 1 fig. 79 can sometimes stop a non-productive cough and help you not embarrass yourself in a theatre, library or a place where you are supposed to be silent.
