The Meridian Flush and Meridian Tracing are very helpful tools we can use the re-establish balance.
Study the Acupressure Points Chart... learn and repeat each meridian and its direction… one at a time. Don’t try to remember them all at once.
Follow the outline of a meridian, with one finger or with several fingers held closely together.
Following a meridian in the normal flow direction is strengthening, while tracing in the opposite direction will calm and sedate the meridian.
Many times sedating the meridian is advised… we often think: ‘stronger is better’...
Balance is the key.
Pause with your fingers for a moment at the starting-point of the meridian (Acu-point # 1 of each meridian) then follow the meridian in an even, fluent motion. The fingers should be close to the body. They may touch the skin or clothing but do not actually need to touch.
Any part you cannot reach with your hands, just visualize the pathway and continue where you can reach to continue the flow.
In repeated tracings move the hands back to the starting point of the meridian.
Trace all the main meridians once or several times daily, or concentrate on the meridians most in need of improvement.
The meridian system allows us to understand why many disease symptoms appear in certain body parts when the originating cause is a weak or inflamed organ in a different location.
A technique called Meridian Flush is basically a strong stimulation of a particular meridian, keeping the flow open and preventing blockages.
Trace a meridian backwards once and then forwards 3 times... is a good way to clear any stagnant energy.

An unbalanced energy pattern of an organ is easily transmitted to other body parts along the course of the meridian.
