Reflexology meridian points are locations where our bodies 12 energy pathways exit or enter the body
All energy is flowing somewhere
It is flowing in, through or out of our bodies
The points where the energy goes in/ or goes out are incredible energy centres that can be stimulated, opened and re energised!
Imagine being able to 'activate' a boost of energy like a super hero!
By stimulating the right meridian point you can totally activate organs and systems around the body like you are pushing buttons on a control panel!
These activations are only boosters, they will never cure illness or deliver miracles.. Unless you call getting rid of a hangover a miracle!! Eg stimulate the stomach meridian when you have a handover to get rid of sickness in the stomach in less than 5 minutes, wow actually maybe reflexology can perform some miracles after all..
There are many reflexology meridian points in the body, however acupuncture meridian points are all over the body even in places you would never imagine!
Acupuncture points are found the entire length of each energy pathway,
unlike reflexology which only stimulate meridian points of the pathways pathways at their entry and exit points of the body.
These reflexology meridian points are found in the Face, Hands and Feet.
Below are diagrams for all of these places to show where they are
The technique for stimulating meridian points is to use one finger or thumb, apply pressure directly to the meridian spot illustrated below, push down in a gentle circular motion, clockwise for about 6 rotations, and then anti-clockwise for another 6 rotations
Often crackling or bubbles can be felt under the point
Keep gently working the meridian point until you can feel them disappear completely
Crackling/ bubbles are an indication of blockages in the energy pathway and need to be dispersed
Do the above meridian stimulating technique to each point for about 15 to 30 seconds
You can do either the hand, face or feet as shown in diagrams below
Stimulating the bowels meridian on the face (chin) is very effective to help stimulate movement in the region.
Also stimulating the lungs region on the face feels incredible, take a deep breath and sit back feeling how powerful your body is.
Meridians and energy pathways are a masters study in itself
It is the study of meridians that is what so many complementary therapies have in common
Reflexology, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and many more incorporate the use of meridians
In the popular Hangover Relief trick it is by stimulating the stomach meridian that we can completely eliminate any sick feeling in the stomach.
