The Energy (Qi) Network of the Body
The Body Meridians can be used for Treatment and Diagnosis.
Energy blockages whether from stress, an injury or trauma, or bad living habits (diet, habits/addictions, lack of exercise) can be traced to the root of all health (physical/mental/spiritual) problems.
Our energy flow affects how we feel, how we think, and our health situation. When the body's life-force energy (Qi) becomes blocked, various imbalances result.
For centuries, in China, Japan, Tibet, India and other countries, life has been considered as a bio-electrical/vibrational energy phenomenon.
It is only because of the existence of this energy in our body that we can move, breathe, digest food… think and even feel.
This energy is called 'Prana', 'Chetana' or 'Qi' (Chi). Qi is composed of two kinds of forces: 'Yin' and 'Yang'. A person remains in good health if there is harmony and balance between these two forces.
If the balance is disturbed, that is, if the flow of one of these forces is greater than the other, illness arises. These forces – energies – flow through definite channels in the body, called 'body meridians' (body's healing energy pathways).
Meridian massage therapy (Meridian flush and Meridian tapping) and Acupressure - use the Acupressure meridian chart - (as well as Acupuncture and other energy flow techniques) promote balance and health.
There are 14 Main Body Meridians
12 Paired Meridians and 2 Single Meridians
Meridian Pairs complement each other -
and the other
12 primary paired meridians:
6 yang and 6 yin – yin and yang forming a pair.
And 2 single mid- meridians:
Each Meridian is related to an Element: Earth, Metal, Fire, Wood or Water.
Understanding the five meridian elements, gives us tools for treatment...
Each Meridian is most active at certain times of the day/night
The Meridian Clock - or Horary Clock is helpful in pin-pointing deficient or over-active meridian function.
Studying the meridian pathways and Acupressure points for transmitting Qi healing energy is key to transformational energy work.
