The Three Thumps

The Three Thumps exercise is part of the Daily Energy Routine that Donna Eden shares in her book Energy Medicine (pgs. 74-80).

Three Thumps

This process consists of tapping on three different meridian points. Tapping on these points will restore your energy when you are tired, increase your vitality and keep your immune system strong. Use this process each morning and anytime during the day that you need a pick-me-up.

1) K-27 Points

K-27 Points

To location these points, place the pointer finger of each hand on your collarbone and move your hands toward each other until you reach the two inside corners of your collarbone.  Drop straight down from these points to about an inch below your collarbone.  For most people, there is a soft spot or indentation there.

Tap or massage these points for about 30 seconds while breathing in and out.

Variation: in order to assist the energy to cross over from right to left and left to right... cross your arms and tap the left collar bone with the right fist and the right collar bone with the left fist.
Benefits of tapping K-27 points:
  • Increased energy
  • Feel more alert
  • Focus if you are having difficulty concentrating

Thymus Gland
2) Thymus Gland

The Thymus Gland is located in middle of the chest, centered below the K-27 points.  It's also called the Tarzan Spot.

Massage or tap on the center of your sternum (center of chest on breast bone) for about 30 seconds while breathing deeply in and out.
Benefits of tapping the Thymus Gland:
  • Stimulate your energy system
  • Boost your immune system
  • Increase your strength and vitality
3) Spleen Points

Spleen Points
Find the Spleen Points by moving your fingers down from your Thymus, out to your nipples, and straight down beneath your breasts.
The spleen points are located directly below each breast. Make fists and tap both points for about 20 seconds while breathing deeply in and out.

Benefits of tapping Spleen Points:
  • Lift your energy level
  • Balance your blood sugar
  • Strengthen your immune system
