Alicante and Valencia bore the brunt of the Gota Fría on Sunday Alicante and Valencia bore the brunt of the Gota Fría on Sunday Up to 170 millimetres of rain in Alicante and underwatrivers on the beaches of Valencia! The Region of Murcia escaped the worst of the Gota Fría storm which formed in the south-east of Spain on Saturday night and Sunday morning, but not by much! Just a little further north on the Mediterranean coast many parts of the provinces of Alicante and Valencia were doused with up to 170 millimetres of rain, causing rivers to swell and more than doubling the amount of precipitation recorded in the last four months in the space of just 12 hours. In Alicante the worst affected areas were the higher ground inland in the Marina Alta and El Comtat, with the highest precipitation totals being recorded in Castell de Castells (170.1 mm), Benigembla (162.4 mm) and Millena (157.8). Even on the coast at Alicante-Elche airport there were 83.5 litres of rain, again doubling the amount which had accumulated since 1st October! These are very significant totals indeed, but on this occasion the Gota Fría was not as destructive as it has been on many occasions in the past, according to the data compiled by Aemet and the Valencia Meteorology Association (Avamet). Rather than falling as isolated cloudbursts, the rain fell persistently and over a wide area, and the crops in the fields, rather than being decimated, benefitted from the water, particularly in areas where irrigation has been restricted on account of the on-going drought. This was the case in the Vega Baja, where between 40 and 60 millimetres of rain fell in Orihuela, Rojales and Torrevieja. At the same time the snow which had been forecast also arrived in the Costa Blanca, although at higher altitudes than had been thought likely. Picture postcard scenes were the order of the day, for example, in the Sierra de Aitana, the Sierra de Mariola and La Serrella.

Each meridian is a group of acupuncture points. These pathways might be compared to radio waves which are neither seen nor felt, yet they exist. Radio waves can be blocked or interrupted by a large object, but when you remove the object, the radio wave can be received. Likewise, blockages in the flow of ch’i occur for many reasons: injuries, imbalances in the body (nutritional, structural, emotional and electromagnetic), and poor lifestyle habits. A variety of methods can be applied to stimulate the acupuncture points. Commonly a very fine needle is skillfully placed in the appropriate point and then removed after a few minutes. Typically, you will have virtually no sensation once the needles are inserted. The needle insertion is usually less noticeable than plucking one hair from your forearm. How do the needles work?
