of the eyes exercise, how to do the exercise and some teaching ideas for

promoting students’ awareness of eye protection, improving blood circulation,
relax muscles and preventing myopia. It is based on traditional Chinese medicine theories and pressure points. Eyes exercise is practised only in
Mainland China. All the primary and secondary school students are required
to do it at least twice a day. Very important! Do not do the eyes
exercise with dirty hands! You will spread germs. Wash your hands before the exercise. Are you ready? Let’s start! There are six
sessions all together, each session will follow the beat of number counting. I
will count from 1 to 8 for eight times. The first session: 第一节. Find the
Cuanzhu pressure point, which is located at the inner end of the eyebrows the other
fingers relax and place on the forehead and massage the area once per
beat. The pace is the number counting. I will be counting in Chinese in this
video. 准备好了吗?Are you ready? 我们开始吧。Let’s start. 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This pressure point is for headaches and hiccups. 第二节。The second session. Put both of
your index fingers on the Jing Ming pressure point, which is referred to the
area between the inner eyes, corners and the nose. With the other fingers
making a fist, massage the pressure point up and down once per beat you. 预备,开始! 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This pressure point is for many eye conditions, such as, dry eyes, tired eyes and dark circles under your eyes. 第三节。The third session.

centimeters below your eye socket. With other fingers making a fist, follow
the counting and rub the pressure point once per beat. 预备,开始! 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This pressure point is also

your thumbs on your temple. First rub the temple in a circular motion count one two
four then hold your thumb still and use the second joint of your index fingers
to rub against the eye socket. So eyebrows five and six and bottom of the
eye sockets seven eight. So goes like this One two three four five six seven eight. OK. 预备,开始! 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This one is to improve

your index fingers and middle fingers on the Feng Chi pressure point, which
is round about 10 centimeters parallel to the ear lobe on the back of your head.
The rest of your fingers just form a fist. Follow the counting and massage the
area once per beat. 预备,开始! 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This pressure point is to improve your

massage to the area once per beat. 预备,开始! 一二三四五六七八 二二三四五六七八 三二三四五六七八 四 二三四五六七八 五二三四五六七八 六 二三四五六七八 七二三四五六七八 八二三四五六七停。 This pressure point is for general eye fitness. Now, we’ve finish our traditional Chinese
eye massage, let’s look at some teaching ideas for your language classrooms. You can use it as a warm-up activity with target language. It is a great input task
to teach numbers. You can also use it to teach formulaic expressions, such as, Are you ready? Let’s start! Well done! Close your eyes and etc. It can be used as a
transition activity. It is a great opportunity to use the eyes exercise to
introduce and compare cultural knowledge. And it is a perfect example for promoting
well-being in your classroom. Thanks for watching. I’m Karen Hu, and if you have
