Eastern Cultures believe that energy circulates and nourishes the whole person through specific pathways, or “meridians”. In Indian medicine this is called nadi, or river.
Meridians form a crisscross network of interconnected pathways that link the organs, skin, muscles and bones in a unified body. The energy or (chi) that circulates within them may be called either “yang” in nature, defending the body on the outside, or more (yin) in nature, nourishing the body on the inside.
These channels run from deep in the organs out through major meridian branches to smaller and smaller ones, ending up at the outside of the body in the skin. Then they go back again, just like the pattern of other major body systems such as the nervous, lymphatic and blood systems.
- The Yang meridians of the hand originate from the fingertips and flow to the head/face.
- The Yin meridians of the hand flow from the chest to end at the fingertips (where they connect with the next channel – a yang channel).
- For both legs and arms, the meridians of the yin are on the inside/protected surface of the arm/leg, while the yang meridians are on the outside of the arm/leg.
- The Yin leg meridians flow from the toes/feet to the abdomen/thorax. The Yang leg meridians originate in the head and flow towards the feet.
- The front of the body is Yin, the back, Yang.
Each of the 12 organs is linked with a meridian or energy channel, named according to the internal organ it affects. The meridians , like rivers of energy, ensure proper nurturing of Chi or life force throughout your whole being. When you are healthy, the flow of Chi proceeds unimpeded, like water in a free running river, and energy is well distributed throughout the meridian pathways. When the river, or meridian is blocked for some reason, the qi is prevented from reaching the specific area it is supposed to nurture. The result is that the cells, tissue or organs in the affected area will suffer.
Because the meridians serve the whole body from outside in and inside out, they have a dual role. They prevent harmful energies from entering (in the form of bacteria and viruses) the body. They also indicate the presence of harmful energy already in the body in the form of symptoms on the outside. These may be felt as aches, pains, heat or cold.
Any type of “disease” is a sign that the energy within the meridian system is out of balance. When a meridian is blocked, one part of the body is getting too much qi and enters a state of excess, while another part is getting too little and becomes deficient in Chi. This will result in one organ becoming overactive while another organ will become underactive and may be fatigued. If you do not correct this problem when initially manifested it can lead to the symptoms getting progressively worse and the disease gets more serious.
Did you know?
…that the ancient Chinese treatment of acupressure has been practised and perfected for over 5000 years? In simple terms, it was discovered that by pressing certain points of the body, pain or disease were alleviated – and often in regions of the body remote from the pain or pressure point!
Facial acupressure can be performed by a massage therapist or other certified professional, or a person can perform it on his or her own face once trained in what to do.
By pressing certain meridian/reflex points in the face, not only are there benefits to the facial area but for the whole body – a great bonus:
For the face…
- Improvement of muscular tone and facial contours, including the area between the nose and mouth (specifically a problem for smokers)
- Stimulation of circulation and nutrient flow to the facial skin
- Promotes an effective lymphatic flow and removal of toxins
- Glowing and healthier-looking complexion due to improved skin oxygen levels
- Soothing of forehead wrinkles, creases between the brows and ‘crows feet’
- Alleviation of sinus problems and improvement of air flow – may help tinnitus
- Reduction of puffiness around the eyes, nose bleeds and eye strain
- Reduction of facial spasms, tics and nervous twitches
For the body…
- Balancing energy levels and general flow of Chi
- Eases stress and feelings of anxiety
- Improve skin oxygen levels and lymphatic flow
- Improve sleep and feeling of wellbeing
