We apply the meridians of oriental medicine to our treatments.

Meridians, a vital concept in Traditional Chinese Medicine, refer to the pathways through which energy flows within the body, influencing its functions and overall state. It is believed that by travelling along these meridians, vital energies such as "qi" and blood spread throughout the body, impacting its various functions and health conditions.

Key features and mechanisms of meridians include:

  1. Flow and Distribution: Meridians encompass the entire body, following specific routes. They can be categorized into two main groups: the Yang meridians (exterior pathways) and the Yin meridians (interior pathways), interconnecting the limbs and torso, and corresponding to specific organs or pathologies.

  1. Acupoints: Meridians contain specific points known as acupoints, located on the skin and muscles. These acupoints serve as gateways to access the energy within the meridians. Acupuncture and acupressure are therapies that stimulate these acupoints, aiming to regulate the energy flow and restore balance within the body.

  1. Regulation and Treatment: When energy flow within the meridians becomes stagnant or imbalanced, it is believed to affect bodily functions and create health issues. The goal of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine is to regulate the meridians' flow, improve the circulation of qi and blood, and restore the body's balance. Acupuncture, acupressure, and moxibustion are therapeutic methods utilized to manipulate acupoints and achieve these aims.

  1. Associated Symptoms and Diagnosis: In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the condition of meridians and acupoints reflects the overall state of the body's functions and organs. Observing and analyzing the changes in meridian flow and acupoint reactions contribute to the diagnosis and understanding of various symptoms and health conditions. Disturbances in meridian flow or acupoint sensitivity may indicate signs of illness or imbalances.
