The Meridian Clock...

Meridian Clock, Meridian Flow Wheel or Horary Clock

The Meridian clock is a very useful tool for the diagnosis and treatment of energy imbalances.

The human body has 12 meridians - each meridian complements its opposite meridian.

Each of the 12 meridians flows in an up- or down-wards direction - one flows into the other. Keeping these lines/channels open is very beneficial for good health. 

The Meridian Clock...

Meridian Clock -

The energy of each organ meridian is strongest for 2 hours in specific cycles, completing a 24-hour cycle every day.

6 meridians are 'Yin' in quality and move upwards and 6 are 'Yang' and move downwards.

Each meridian comes into its highest action at a certain time of day... this is when its paired meridian at it's lowest. 12 hours later, the change is complete... with what was down, now at its peak!

Each meridian is influenced by an element or season - there are Five Elements - Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.

You can become familiar with your body cycles by noticing the changes in the way you feel at different times of the day/night.

The meridian clock graphic is helpful for quick reference.

System check...

Do you get tired at particular times of the day? Are you prone, at certain times of the day, to headaches? Are you irritable? When? Grumpy? Energetic? Sharp?

The energy cycle is fairly similar in all of us... we just have to pay attention to it.

We can optimize these cycles by focusing on the meridians - and acu-points - and bring balance to the energy flow.
