Like a network of rivers nourishing a landscape, the meridians are the channels through which “Qi” flows, to nourish and energize the human body. These channels exist within the subtle body and returns the body to a state of equilibrium and wellness. Though they may have a correspondence to the physical nervous system, you won’t find the meridians per se on an operating table! Collectively, the meridians form the matrix within which the physical body functions. They also act as a network of communication between the physical and the more subtle energetic bodies. Combinations of acupuncture points reset physiology gone awry to invigorate the expulsion of harmful pathogenic agents causing symptoms.
