Acupressure - The 12 Meridians

yoga_meridians

Acupressure identifies twelve major meridians in the human body. These meridians are the pathways of chi and blood flow throughout your system. Any break in the flow indicates an imbalance.

According to Chinese medicine, an insufficient supply of chi makes a person vulnerable to disease. Restoring the chi as quickly as possible also restores the natural balance of the body, and this is the ultimate goal.

Twelve Major Meridians

The twelve major meridians correspond to certain body parts: kidneys, liver, spleen, heart, lungs, pericardium, bladder, gall bladder, stomach, small and large intestines, and the triple burner (body temperature regulator). Each meridian is equally represented on each side of the body, and each one is associated with either Yin or Yang.

If a person stands with their arms above their head, all the Yin meridians flow upwards, while the Yang meridians flow downwards. Pathways corresponding to the Yang organ are often used to treat disorders of that are Yin related. Each one of these meridians is also a pressure point that can be used to ease certain conditions and ailments.
