What is Meridian?
Like a network of rivers nourishing a landscape, the meridians are the channels through which vital energy (also known as qi) flows, to nourish and energize the human body. These channels exist within the subtle body – you won’t find them on the operating table! Collectively, they form the matrix within which the physical body functions. They also act as a network of communication between the physical and the more subtle energetic bodies.
Where and How Many Meridian?
There are twelve main meridians in the body, each associated with a particular element and organ system. These twelve meridians are Lung , Large Intestine, Stomach, Spleen, Heart, Small Intestine, Bladder, Kidney, Pericardium, Triple-Warmer, Gallbladder and Liver.
How will Meridian affect your body?
The qi in a given meridian is strongest during a specific two-hour interval of the twenty-four hour day. The way qi travels in this cycle through the meridians is referred to as the “Meridian Clock.”
When this flow is balanced and harmonious, we experience physical and emotional well-being. When the flow is blocked, erratic or deplete, we experience physical or emotional disease.
How about Acupuncture Points effect on qi?
Along the path of the meridians, there are certain places where the energy pools, making the qi of the meridian more accessible there than at other places. These pools of energy are called acupuncture points. Each acupuncture point has a specific function, in relation to the Element and Organ System being accessed. The most powerful points tend to be at the ends of the meridians: at the toes, ankles, and knees; or fingers, wrists and elbows. Very often, a symptom expressing in one part of the body will be alleviated by stimulating an acupuncture point that’s located in a completely different place on the body! This works because the point being stimulated lies on a meridian whose energy also passes through the injured or diseased part of the body – so the intelligence of a specific acupuncture point can be transmitted along the course of the meridian to the place within the body that is in need of healing.
What are the ways to maintain a healthy flow of qi?
Convention Qigong and acupuncture are practices which help us to maintain a healthy flow of qi through the meridian system. Through time, a new form called PXtherapy has evolved that can also effectively maintain a healthy flow of qi without the need to practice qi gong nor the use of needles.
How Do We Know All This?
Who discovered the meridian system? It’s generally agreed that the source of our knowledge of the meridian system is three-fold: (1) information received in the deep meditations of the ancient sages; (2) the direct experience of the yogis, i.e. what they felt/saw within their own bodies; and (3) the empirical explorations of many generations of qigong and Chinese medical practitioners.
