The human body has an energy highway called the meridian. Energy flows throughout this meridian which accesses the entire body from top to toe, with different levels of energy being distributed across the whole body network.
The meridian energy network is more of a process rather than a structure and cannot be detected in medical terms.
Meridian lines can be mapped throughout the body and exist in pairs; yin and yang. Each line has a number of acupuncture points along its path which can be stimulated through massage.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, massaging the acupuncture points along the meridian lines helps the flow of energy and blood throughout the body, helping to achieve complete wellbeing in the body which, in turn, helps to stave off common health problems and sickness.
