You feel an immediate benefit that continues to balance and energize you throughout the day. Studies have show that an imbalance in the Meridians often manifests as an illness in the body.
The Governing and Central Meridians are centrally located on the body, with the Governing Meridian flowing from the tip of your nose over the crown of the head and down the back of the spine. The Central Meridian begins on top of the lip and continues down the center of the front of the body; they are powerful energy pathways. The other twelve of Meridians form a chain and are linked. Each of the twelve, are identified by the organs they serve.
Chinese acupuncture is based on the Meridian energy system. It is no wonder acupuncture and acupressure are so effective. They are ancient forms of Energy Medicine. The Chinese read pulses to pinpoint the cause of the imbalance and then use the Meridians, whether it be strengthening or sedating the energy flow, to bring the body into a state of balance. Their ability to read the pulses of the the body is as accurate as Western diagnostic equipment at identifying the health challenge.
All life-forms have meridians, including animals, creatures, winged ones and all plant forms, which serve as pathways for their life-force.
