Holly Tse, a Traditional Chinese Reflexologist and Certified Massage Practitioner has a two minute video on how to locate and massage the Heart 7 or Shen Men Point. As Holly explains, "This point is used to treat insomnia, heart palpitations, fear, sadness, and agitation.
The Chinese name for Heart 7 is shen men, which means “spirit gate.” [Not to be confused with a point on the ear with the same name, which is used to calm the mind but has no apparent effect on the Heart Channel. HERE is a video for massaging that point.] The Chinese Medicine perspective is that the Heart houses the spirit, so if there’s an imbalance in the Heart or its energy meridian, then one’s spirit can become disturbed and restless. This can result in anxiety, fear, restlessness and sleep disturbances.
Massaging Heart 7 helps balance the Heart meridian, which helps to restore a sense of peace and harmony to one’s spirit."
