Learn About the Meridian System in Oriental Medicine On behalf of tvlesson.com, I’m Dr. Justin Newman, doctor of organs and medicine with TheBanyanHolistic.com. Let’s talk a little bit about the meridian system of the body. The energy in the body flows through pathways. If you think of your body as having an internal and external component, then you’ll have a better understanding of how the acupuncture in Chinese medicine works. Although, even in ancient China, they understood that you have12 organs that you work with, these are internal components, your liver, your lungs, your heart and so on. But these organs have an external component as well. The pathways that flow along the body’s surface are the external manifestation of these internal organs. And so it’s the work with the energy of the system to improve the circulation of the system, to optimize how the organs are working and to help resolve imbalances that may occur. We’re dealing with the meridian system of pathways that flow along the surface. The acupuncture points are located on these pathways. There are more than 2000 points that exist in this meridian system. There are points that govern all of the organ’s functions. Functions that relates to the glands, nervous system, but also points that govern our emotions, our mind set, our relationships and how we connect to our higher frequencies or our spiritual perspectives in life. These pathways can be worked with acupuncture but acupressure as well. By doing certain exercises, we can move the energy in our body and relate to how these pathways are manifesting in terms of carrying energy from our environment to our organs, and helping to maintain balance and harmony, which is the name of the game when it comes to Chinese medicine, from our system to the environment. In summary, it’s important to understand that the meridian system is an interconnecting grab of energy that connects your body to the environment to maintain harmony. On behalf of tvlesson.com, this is Dr. Justin Newman. Thank you for watching.
