Meridians Are Proven Physical Pathways

I have been in so many car accidents (and no I wasn’t the one driving) I probably wouldn’t be walking if it wasn’t for yoga, shiatsu massage and acupuncture.
If you have read my blog on comparing natural health therapies you know that Shiatsu is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine http://earthelixir.ca/2011/10/25/natural-health-therapies/
The body has several energy systems mapped by ancient sages that are recognized in cultures from around the world.

Shiatsu is an ancient massage therapy that has a lot of empirical and documented evidence. Massage therapies have been proven to give benefits to many ailments. The lymphatic system in our body can only be moved by exercise, stretching or massage, so massage is important for people that don’t get exercise for whatever reason.

Shiatsu is acupressure, which uses the hands instead of the needles of acupuncture to follow the same meridian energy pathways.

The meridian system is like an “energy bloodstream” and the pressure points or “hot spots” are tiny reservoirs of electromagnetic energy. Science states that everything is made up of energy including us.

The body is electromagnetic in nature. The heart system runs on an electric current system. The body is magnetic, just like the magnetic properties shown in animals to help navigate, migrate and connect with the earth.
These electromagnetic points are stimulated with hands, fingers, elbows or needles to release and balance the flow of energy, while giving the immune system a boost. The immune reaction induces self-healing mechanisms, while relieving congestion and blocks that cause pain.

The meridians are really one long energy highway that moves through the twelve organ systems, and have now been detected by modern technology.

Recent CT scans show acupuncture points just like ancient maps show.
Radioactive isotopes have been injected in acupuncture points that show threadlike tubules 0.5-1.5 microns in diameter and matched ancient meridian maps.
These meridian transmissions of light have also shown up in infrared photography as “hot spots” that match the acupuncture points on the meridians.

There are two other meridians that zip up the centre line of the body, front and back. They open more out to the environment than the deeper running meridians that travel through muscle and organ groups. The organ/ meridian systems are paired in the Philosophy of the Chinese Five Elements to show the dynamic connected relationships in the body.

I find all massage techniques really beneficial along with the healing power of touch. While other massages are mostly skin contact, shiatsu is done through a sheet or in comfortable fitting clothes if you prefer not to have skin on skin contact.

To balance your meridians you can learn to trace your own meridians and hold, tap and massage pressure points or get an acupuncture or acupressure shiatsu massage.

I wish you much healing on your journey.
