Some science behind the scenes
Roof of mouth
There are two trigger points in the mouth – one is the roof of the mouth itself which is the junction of a number of nerves. But there is also another trigger point that lies way back at the very back of the mouth and is a direct trigger on various endocrine glands.
The Governor and the Conception vessel both use this latter trigger point [energy vessels or reservoirs]. Thus this is a point where the yang and yin energies meet.
There is a direct correspondence between yoga, Qigong and Craniosacral therapy, for example, in the use of these trigger points, the roof of the mouth is stimulated in all three techniques . In yoga you do the pressing yourself – which is not that easy. In craniosacral therapy, the healer does it for you.
The roof of the mouth affects the trigeminal nerve.
